Church leaders and business people tell us why they are looking forward to the first-ever CRE in Liverpool (3-4 May 2023).
‘It’s great to hear Liverpool is hosting CRE North 2023. The event will showcase current Christian work and ministry, spotlight justice initiatives and draw us into the marketplace of Christian resources. There’ll be much to do and see and it will prove a fun and interesting day whether you come on your own or with friends and colleagues.’ The Rt Revd Beverley Mason, Anglican Bishop of Warrington
‘I have exhibited at CRE for more than 10 years. It is one of the best for promoting our Southport-based ministry that buys property to house homeless and marginalised people. We’ve made many contacts who have become partners and investors – which is so important to us in purchasing property. It’s also a great place to connect with other businesses and ministries. If you are thinking of booking a stand, I recommend you do so.’ Pastor Pete Cunningham, Green Pastures CBS Ltd
‘We have supported CRE from its inception in 1985. It is a great opportunity to discuss new products with a huge number of prospects and existing customers in one place.’ Diane Pontin, GoPak Ltd
‘CRE North 2023 is an exciting and fruitful way of bringing people together from across the Christian traditions. The exhibition will provide unique resources to local church leaders and will offer in creative ways our talents for the common good. It will be a great opportunity to renew friendships and create new partnerships from our different churches, building on the warmth of welcome and the ecumenical endeavours that are so characteristic of the city of Liverpool.’ Most Reverend Malcolm McMahon, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Liverpool
‘My previous visits to this great Christian exhibition have always been extremely inspirational, which is why I am excited about it finally arriving in Liverpool. We look forward to welcoming the CRE team and pray the event will be warmly embraced by churches across our region.’ Rev Dr Tani Omideyi, Senior Pastor & Chair of LJM Association of Charities
‘Here is an opportunity for 150+ organisations to bring skills, services, ideas and resources to the north west and for members of all church traditions to come and draw inspiration from them.’ The Rt Revd David Walker, Anglican Bishop of Manchester
‘CRE is the first date in my diary each year. I can meet local church decision-makers face to face and discuss their requirements first hand in a unique, friendly environment. My business has grown as a direct result.’ Chris Dunphy, founder of ChurchEcoMiser
‘Together for the Harvest is thrilled to be partnering with CRE in May 2023 as it comes to the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool. We believe this event will greatly enhance the cause of the gospel as church and ministry leaders find new relationships and resources to see our region transformed.’ Dr Nic Harding, Director, Together for the Harvest
A limited number of space-only areas are available on request.
