A free family fun event will take place tomorrow (Saturday) bringing to an end four days of the Xpression inter-church event.
The Christian outreach has been running from Wednesday at Corcrain, Brownstown, Garvaghy Road and Killicomaine.
One hundred volunteers have been out spreading the word of God’s love in a practical manner - by doing jobs and hosting a range of activities.
Tomorrow’s fun event will take place at Bann Boulevard (beside Tesco car park) from 4-7. There will be a free bouncy castle, inflatable church, cage football, face painting, games, live music and more.
This Thursday, August 18, at Corcrain Community Centre (Evolve Martial Arts Centre), there is a crazy carnival and free barbecue, sumo suits, face painting and more from 7-8.30pm.
And the same evening at Brownstown Park from 7-8.30 children can enjoy a barbecue with face painting and fun for all ages - all for free.
The Rev Peter Smith, chairperson said, “Xpression aims to bring a positive message; have a positive impact, and leave a positive impression.”
This is the 12th year of the initiative. From barbecues to kids clubs, gardening to sing-alongs in residential homes and free concerts with games, face painting and much more, the communities of Portadown have benefitted from ‘love in action’.
The inter-church initiative consists of a large number of local churches represented by committed Christians who are keen to spread the gospel message.
