Members of Brigg's New Life Church attended a major get-together at the Lincolnshire Showground. And spokesman Coun Alec Depledge (pictured) said they ‘were thrilled to be part of this amazing event’.
Thousands of Christians from various denominations and networks descended on the showground, near Lincoln for the 27th Grapevine – a celebration of Hope.
Alec explained: "A village of tents, caravans and camper vans was speedily erected, bringing together people of all ages for five days of worship, teaching, fellowship and fun. What a party!"
The Big Top had crowds of up to 5,000, with the Cannon and Ball Show on the Sunday afternoon a complete sell-out.
Alec added: "It was inspiring, exciting and uplifting to be part of this great event – organised and run so efficiently, with over 700 volunteers cheerfully giving themselves to serve the event, drawn mainly from churches belonging to the Ground Level Network."
