GOfest - Mission events that inspire, equip and connect




13 May 2017

Moorlands College

The all-new GOfest is coming to Dorset! GOfest is a partnership of mission organisations, working with local churches to bring you a dynamic, mission-focused event which aims to celebrate what God is doing in his world and inspire our involvement in his mission locally and globally.

Church leaders from three church networks across the region have already come together with GOfest and Moorlands, to talk about how we can work together in support of the May event and beyond. We are set for an exciting, inspiring and challenging day together as we consider global and local mission issues.

Beyond the day event at Moorlands College, GOfest will seek to serve churches across the region through ongoing partnerships with a vision to see whole-life disciples, as part of the whole church reaching the whole world!
