Ordinary Christians, extraordinary times

What’s On

1. National GC Events; 2. Events with GC input; 3. Long list of events of all organisations
.

Many of the events April-July below will be cancelled, if they have not been cancelled already. However I leave the details up –

  1. We need to sympathise with the organisers who will have the problems of cancelling or postponing.
  2. It shows in which areas of the country there is activity taking place.
  3. Leaving the details up may enable people to get in touch with each other.
