The ‘Big Day Out’ is an event for everyone: old and young, big and small, church members or not.

The day has been organised by the URC Yorkshire Synod as a chance to have fun together and invite your friends along too. We are running a range of extra activities through the day, that you will be able to enjoy for free alongside the other public visitors to Flamingoland.

As well as the rides, flumes and the zoo you can join us for…
…a ‘Messy Picnic’ with a story and crafts for all ages to get your creativity flowing.
…a ‘Chai and Chat’ session, for when your feet have had enough and you fancy a sit down and a cuppa.
…a ‘Hymnalong’ if you love to sing traditional hymns.
…a ‘Treasure Hunt’ to keep you on your toes as you explore the park.

All of this will culminate in a time of family worship with music, prayer and the Gospel at the end of the day.
So why not invite some friends and join us on Saturday 14th September.
