The Bishop of Burnley is hosting a Clergy Family Fun Day at his home as a gesture of thanks for all the hard work that they put in to support the Church in the county.
Taking place on Saturday July 21 from 11am-4pm at the Rt Rev. Philip North's home, Dean House at 449 Padiham Road in Burnley (postcode BB12 6TE), the event promises "lots going on for clergy families with children aged from 0-16 from across Lancashire," according to the bishop.
"The day will feature arts and crafts, bouncy castles, a Christian magician, a big barbecue, beat the goalie, ice cream, face painting, balloon modelling, and even an escape room restricted for the use of teenagers," said Bishop Philip. "There will also be plenty to eat and drink as well as spaces simply to relax and chat.
"It's a chance to make a small gesture of thanks to our clergy families for the many sacrifices they make to support the ministry of the Church," he added.
Any clergy families wanting to attend can contact Bishop Philip's secretary Louise Hunter via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with how many will be attending from their family for planning and catering purposes.
