The Voice Weekend at Pilgrims Hall

I can't believe that over a week has gone by since our Bank Holiday Weekend Conference at Pilgrims Hall 

The marquees ready a few days before
so just a few random photos

Three hundred people attended during the 3 day and 4 evening event.

Some people camped while some used hotels, many lived near enough to commute and guest speakers from afar stayed at the hall
Some of the time it was dry and a lot of the time it was long spells of torrential rain but it did not dampen spirits
Food outlets on site were good, both hot and cold.
We had to keep the area in front of the house clear for ambulance or fire engines to turn ( health and safety) but thankfully not needed and the only time the first aid tent was used was for a volunteer with a cut finger!

The campers had a bit of luxury even if they did get wet getting there

It was a wonderful weekend, challenging, inspiring, informative and it was great to see the different Christian ministries working and flowing together

Luxury Mobile Toilets -- I've never seen such things here. We just get the Economy sort. Hmmm -- do I sense a business opportunity? :-) -Beth

Glad you had an encouraging successful conference. They are really getting fancy with those portable toilets!

That's marvelous, Barbara. It's obvious you and others did a LOT of work to put it all together. Congratulations on a successful event!

I always enjoy hearing a bit about these conferences. I would love to be there, too. A dear friend and her husband just returned from London where he spoke at a conference. He is a pastor in our area and I'm thrilled when we can gather together with brothers and sisters around the world.

It is encouraging to see so many people coming together with the same purpose.

I wish I had a group like that, Even the Mainers in
Church are very cold and not friendly. I have gone one year and can't make a friend. They just say hello and walk away. Maybe I'll find a new church.
Or better yet move out of Maine.
