Big Weekend - Special Information

Friday 10 - Sunday 12 June

Big Weekend - Special Information

All stewards,car parking,prayer ministry must report one hour prior to event to sign in at Event Control (gazebo) which will be facing the football fields towards the front of the large marquee. The event control will be manned by 2 stewards which I have allocated on the sign up sheets. Stewards will be in the main marquee on Friday am,Friday night and Saturday night. During Saturday daytime they will be moving about identified zones which you will get at sign in.

We have a minibus on the Saturday all day and Sunday morning to transport those parking at the church car parks. I must stress that if you live in Moira please walk to Demense and let friends park in your driveways to help reduce traffic congestion. Coming from Moira roundabout please turn into St Johns church drive way and go up and around to either their car park,Presbyterian or MBC. Parking will also be at the Methodist and St Johns Halls. Those living outside Moira please try and car pool if at all possible as well!

Disabled will be able to be dropped off right up at the marquee and then the driver can go and park and we will have car park attendants helping with this. We have some parking on the grass areas in the Demense but this will be specifically for disabled with blue badges and key staff and the number of cars we can have here is limited. Cars parking in this area do so at their own risk.

Security: can all the guys who signed up for this please make sure they arrive on time and do not leave site unattended as there will be expensive sound equipment,lights,bookstall etc and we are required to have security at all times until take down on Monday am. There will be significant periods where we will be on site so security will not be needed at those times.

We are so thankful for all those who have signed up as we cannot run this weekend without you. On Sunday just to let everyone know there will also be an offering to help with the costs associated with the Big Weekend.

Please remember to bring your own picnic on Sunday for after the service as there will be face painting for the kids and a couple of puppet shows in the large marquee as well as having good fellowship. Unfortunately we had hoped to have a barbecue but this will not be possible and was proving too difficult and costly.

God bless and please pray for our Big weekend!
