Bank Holiday Monday 26th May

What is going on? 
 A fantastic, joyful, colourful procession right through the heart of Chesterfield

Who is it and why are they doing it?
We are Christians from more than 30 different churches all over Chesterfield joining together in celebration of the life-transforming God we all serve.  Jesus won us a great victory when he died on that cross and we want to celebrate the abundant life that he gives.

When does the procession take place?
We begin by gathering outside the Town Hall at 9.30 for a 9.45 start with a couple of worship songs led from the steps by our musicians.  The procession moves off about 10.00 for a circuit into town and then back to the Town Hall via Saltergate with a couple of songs to finish.

What will I see?
Some lorries and cars will be decorated carnival style to fit in with this year's sporting theme, showing different kinds of tableau.  Some of the walkers will also be dressed up, others will be sporting our theme colours - green and yellow.  Accompanied by music and maybe some freebies to give away it will be a fun family start to your holiday Monday.

What time will it finish? 
After the children sing our final song outside the Town Hall we expect it to be about 11.10 am.  If you pop into Rose Hill URC afterwards we will be serving refreshments and there should be face painting there too.

Is it too late for my church to get involved?
Of course not - just come and join in the fun!  We still need some helpers for the refreshments.  So if walking is not your thing but making a good brew is or if you would like more information contact us at:
