Dear HOPE Coventry friend,

In just over a week, up to 150,000 people will descend on Coventry for a weekend of cars, fun, and laughter. HOPE Coventry churches have come together to offer family activities and a Christian presence in the city centre – but we need YOU to come along too!

We need 6 volunteers to set up and pack down our large tents on Sat 2nd June from 7.30am-9.30am and Sun 3rd June from 4pm-5.30pm at Greyfriars Green (Warwick Road). We need 14 more volunteers to paint children’s faces for just 1 hour – if you are good at make up, the skills are transferable! Face paints are provided. Most are needed on Sun 3rd June, but also for Sat 2nd June. The Healing on the Streets team needs 6 more people willing to pray for passers by who want prayer in town between 12-3pm on Sat 2nd/Sun 3rd June. Free training at 7.30pm in Binley tomorrow night (Wed 23rd May) – text Ian on 07877 935545 or reply to this email for the address. Dozens of ambassadors are also needed for 2-3 hours over the weekend to guide visitors to Motofest, giving out programmes and information (training on the day).

To volunteer for any of the above, simply reply to this email.

Don’t forget – there is an open-air United Worship Gathering in the Hope Arena, Greyfriars Green on Sunday 3rd June 10.30-11.30am, to which all are welcome – The full Motofest events programme can be downloaded here:

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at the Motofest weekend!
