Spring Harvest 2018 speakers announced!

In addition to the Bible teachers already confirmed, we are delighted to announce some more of the speakers at Spring Harvest 2018, bringing you a range of the best speakers at all three sites; Minehead, Skegness and Harrogate to explore our theme for 2018 – Only the Brave: Determined Discipleship.

We’re sure it will be challenging and encouraging to dig into the book of James. We’ll discover the bold choices we are called to make in our everyday lives as we seek to honour and follow Jesus. We might not feel brave, but living as his disciples can be the bravest thing we do – costly and rewarding.
