Ian Stanley (from Reading Family Church and part of The Turning Team) will be leading a group into the town centre to witness to the many who stray into town.

On Thursday and Friday late mornings/ lunchtimes most Festival-goers turn up at Tesco’s, Oxford Road to stock up on alcohol for the week. After queuing in Tesco’s they normally relax on the grass outside before slowly making their way back to site.

I am leading a team of Christians who wish to do some 1-2-1 witnessing (and exercising their prophecy and healing gifts if appropriate).

Meet (Morning sessions only)

For morning sessions only:

Thursday/Friday AM – Meet at The Gate, Oxford Road (553 Oxford Road, RG30 1HJ) at 11:30 for a short time of prayer before we go out. Some members of the team will be there from 10:30 to train anybody who wants to join in the evangelism but feels unprepared.

Saturday AM – Meet outside the Carey Centre (Anstey Rd, Reading RG1 7JR) at 10:30am where we will have a short time of prayer then walk down to the Riverside (15-20 min walk).

For afternoon sessions we will be meeting meeting for lunch at New Hope Church (95 York Rd, RG1 8DU) at 1–2pm where we will be able to share stories of what God has been doing. If you are planning to join us in the afternoon please arrive here by 1:45pm – thanks.

Alternatively …

Meet together for a short time of prayer at the Carey Centre at 11:00 and Jamie Cater from Carey Baptist Church will be taking a team out to the Riverside to witness as well.
