JIW Colchester


Colchester Mind Body Spirit Festival Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th October 10am to 4pm

We are pleased to announce that we have a stall at the forthcoming Lifearts event at Marks Tey, near Colchester. We will present the Jesus Deck at our stall, and our staff will be on hand (on a rota basis as is our practice) to read the Jesus Deck with visitors. As previously, there will be no charge to visitors, so we are dependent on JIW supporters for both prayer and finance. There will also be other resources available – most of them free to visitors – and leaflets about the work of Journey into Wholeness.

We are grateful to Chris Cozens for inviting us to be part of this Lifearts event. For further information, please contact Howard Gardner on 07831 101323 or Clare Rusher on 07703 653464.

The Vision

Recent surveys found that over 90% of people in Britain believe in the spiritual realm. Many are searching for holistic health and real spirituality. Sadly, they no longer look to Christianity and the church for answers, but to other beliefs and religions. By 1999, some Christians in Colchester has begun to pray about how best to reach spiritual seekers at the annual Mind Body Soul Exhibition. Since 2001, Journey into Wholeness have had a Christian stall there.
