SCM at Big Church Day Out

There’s not long to go now until SCM will be exhibiting at one of the biggest live music weekends in the Christian Calendar, the Big Church Day Out. Rob, our SCM Connect Project Worker, along with two SCM volunteers, will be heading down South to Wiston House in West Sussex then back up the following week to Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire. We’ll be joining a whole bunch of other organisations in the Bazaar, giving out goody bags and telling everyone about SCM and our work.
