On 6th September 1620 the Mayflower began its journey to the New World. This September we are commemorating the Pilgrims who set sail 400 years ago with a reflection on its legacy.

There will be a:

  • Worship tent with a reflection from Mike Fales Moderator Elect of International Congregational Fellowship and member of a Congregational church in America
  • Children’s tent
  • a Theology tent – exploring the Promised Land theology
  • Mayflower Art and Artifacts Tent
  • Songs That Sustain Us Tent
  • Historical Voices Tent

In the Theology Tent video mention is made of the Underground Railroad. Take a look at these PDF's which share something of their fascinating story:
