For the members of the CCCF it’s not just about the holiday, it’s about meeting up with other Christians for a time of fellowship together.
They cover England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and there are over events taking place during 2019 including the National Rally in the beautiful countryside near Oswestry from Thursday 21st May to Saturday 30th May 2019.
In recognition of it being the 50th anniversary, the fees for any first timers at the National Rally will be reduced by 50%.
Nigel Parrett is the National Chairman of the group and he’s been talking with Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton.
