The team organising The Big Day Out thought it would be useful to have a record of the day so that you could remind yourself of the seminar content, or even catch another seminar that you wanted to go to but had to choose between two.

Well, that archive is now coming together on the Angus Presbytery YouTube channel. It takes a while to create each video, so the archive will build up slowly over the next few weeks. By the end, we hope this will be a useful and valuable additional resource from the day.

If you’re trying to book a ticket at the last minute, we’ve taken the booking system offline. This is to reduce the risk of overlooking late bookings. But you can still turn up on the day. The registration team will be at St. Andrew’s Church in Arbroath from around 9.00 or so and you can still book a place from then. You may not get your first choice of seminars, but we hope you will still find plenty of interest.

Please remember to come to St. Andrew’s Church in Arbroath first, where you will be able to collect your Big Day Out information pack. There’s a dedicated registration desk for those who have pre-booked.

Tea and coffee will be available all day in both venues.

Lunch will be available in Old and Abbey Church where you will also find the resources and information exhibition.

Opening worship starts at 10.00am and we hope to see you there.

Nearly there!

Not long to go!

The 4th of May is almost upon us and final preparations are under way for The Big Day Out. The team are very excited about the day. There’s a great line-up of presentations and workshops. The exhibition space is fully-booked, and there will be an excellent range of resources and ideas for you to browse.

If you haven’t already booked, there’s still time. You can even turn up on the day, but please be aware that seminar places may be limited; so book now if you want to be sure of getting to see your speakers of choice. Pre-booking also means that you are more likely to get the lunch you need if you have particular dietary requirements.

Registration and opening worship will take place in St. Andrew’s Church.

If you are coming by car, there are parking areas nearby both venues, and on-street parking round about. Please park considerately and be mindful of residential access if you are parking on-street. The railway station is only a short walk from both venues.

The Big Day Out is very pleased to welcome Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) to the event on the 4th May 2013.

Here’s a little bit about MAF:

MAF_TrailerMAF work in close partnership with over 1,500 missions, providing flights and logistical support for their outreach to communities in developing nations.

These missions include aid agencies, missions, relief and development organisations, government departments, local churches and other national groups. Their work covers healthcare, emergency relief, development and the bringing of God’s word.

MAF fly to in excess of 3,500 remote locations making sure that even the most basic resources for life are provided, from the word of God, to food, to education and medicine MAF are there, going the extra miles with a plane taking off or landing every three minutes.

Please visit the MAF exhibition trailer, view films of their work, read exciting stories and sign up to support MAF’s ‘Fuel for Life’ project through prayer and practical support. TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE’.

As the various speakers have been confirmed, and outlines of their seminar topics are beginning to take shape, there’s now some updated information on the website. There’s still a bit more to come, so check back for the latest information soon.

The online booking facility will also be going live soon. We still have one or two items to finalise before that happens though. In the meantime, if you want to get started on a booking, the local churches in Angus ought to have flyers and booking forms.

Don’t forget, booking before the 1st April gets you a discount – a ticket is £10 rather than £12.

Yes, we know that May the Fourth is Star Wars Day, but there’s also an exciting event happening here in Angus.

You don’t need to travel to a galaxy far, far away to join in some fantastic worship, listen to top-rate speakers, and get involved with inspiring workshops.

The Presbytery of Angus is once again hosting the Big Day Out: a day of worship, conferences, and workshops which will equip and inspire the ministries and members in your church.

Just as our conference speakers and our workshop leaders come from all avenues of ministry, and all areas of the country, so too this event is not just for those in the Angus area.

So, mark the date in your diary, and check back here for updates on who will be there, and what will be happening.

Oh, and there’ll be a facility to book on-line coming soon too.
