What is “Believe in Shipley”?

“Believe in Shipley” is a ten-day festival starting on the 23rd of September 2016 to:

  •  Celebrate what God is doing here in our communities
  •  Let people know that Jesus loves them
  •  Invite people to learn more about the Christian faith

“Believe in Shipley” is organized by churches and congregations across Shipley and Saltaire. Christians across Shipley want to invite everyone in the community to see for themselves and explore some joyful, creative and diverse ways in which Christian faith is expressed and celebrated here.

Believer, agnostic or sceptic; passionately seeking or mildly curious; all are welcome to discover what the Christian faith means in the 21st century.

“Believe in Shipley” will feature a whole range of things to see, do and participate in.
