At this year’s Church Tent, visitors to the Three Counties Show can enjoy a fresh cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate on the showground along with a bacon buttie, panini or home-made cake, whilst taking part in free family activities, enjoying entertainment on the stage or simply sitting down to take time out from the busy-ness of the show!
The stage outside the church tent will be buzzing throughout the weekend, with performances from our church schools, local musicians and the Worcester Ukulele Club Band. There will also be a chance to ‘come and sing’ on Sunday at 3pm – joining in with some of the classic hymns you might remember from your school assemblies!
This year’s families’ area will be all about peace. There will be a chance to make some free crafts to take home with you, offer a prayer and create a dove of peace to add to our installation inside the tent! Outside the tent there will be giant games to enjoy.
Sam Setchell, part of the planning team for the show, said: “The Church tent is a great place to take a break while visiting the show. While the children are entertained you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee, hot chocolate or fair-trade tea and a slice of home-made cake or freshly made panini. There will be a range of books and other pocket-money gifts to browse as well as the opportunity to say a quiet prayer or talk to one of our chaplains.”
The Church Tent will be located on the corner of Avenue C and Row 3 at this year’s Three Counties Show, next door to the Orchid tent. Bacon sandwiches will be served all day, along with filled paninis at lunchtime and home-made cake/ afternoon tea. There will also be worship each day at 7.45am and 4.45pm.
