MODERN CHURCH has been to Greenbelt where an exciting and very successful festival was held in Greenbelt's new home at Boughton House near Kettering.
We teamed up with Progressive Christianity Network Britain in the resources tent - GSource - featuring the Together in Hope publications which we publish jointly with PCN Britain, St Marks Centre for Radical Christianity and Free to Believe. We had exchanges at the stall with at least 400 people over the long weekend, giving away bags with leaflets about our organisations and the publications.
