The inaugural Love Crewe Mission Week took place in Crewe from Monday 4th to Sunday 10th July 2016.
The Mission Week was organised by ‘Love Crewe’ who are comprised of twelve churches serving the Crewe area.
Events and activities included performances by four-piece band ‘BrightLine’ at four local high schools and at the Carlsberg Suite, Crewe Alexandra FC; Jonathan Conrathe from Mission 24 speaking at four local high schools; a free meal was served at The Lighthouse Centre on Stewart Street; volunteers completed gardening, painting and clean-up tasks around the town; a healing event took place at West St Christian Fellowship; a free tea/coffee stall on the Crewe town square; there was an open air meeting on the town square; an art exhibition at Queens Park; and an evening celebration on the final day at the Carlsberg Suite, Crewe Alexandra FC.
Unfortunately the Free Fun Day was postponed due to wet weather, but it will now take place on Sunday 21st August 2016, from 2pm, at Queens Park, Crewe. It will include stalls, music, theatre and more.
Love Crewe Mission Week was supported by Crewe Town Council and allowed Crewe churches to promote a positive atmosphere within the town.
Phil Howell from Love Crewe said, “The overwhelming impression of Love Crewe was positive - many non-church goers became aware of it, heard of God's love for them and about all that happened. Some were healed! The intention is to do something similar next year - this is just the beginning!”
