We are very excited about this years Festival Programme – dare we say it’s the best yet! We are also conscious of the unexpected context, with our festival happening in the middle of campaigning for a snap Assembly Election. At such a time as this we will be talking about reconciliation and respect and hope. Our prayer is that reconciliation can filter up to Stormont rather than wait for it to filter down from the hill. Join us in calling for a respectful campaign that recognises that all are made in the image of God, that all of our people are important and that all deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.
