Mission on the Map at CRE South West in February

Mission on the Map
With new opportunities in world mission opening up beyond the pandemic, Mission on the Map, a focused area in the Sandown Park foyer, will help CRE visitors make the most of them. ‘We see the potential for amazing new opportunities that can make a significant difference to God’s kingdom, in the UK and around the world,’ said Mike Frith of OSCAR (pictured far left). Mission on the Map, with a Mission Aviation Fellowship plane as a centre piece, will be officially opened by George Verwer (12 noon, Tue 11 Oct), founder and former international director of Operation Mobilisation, and run for all three days.

Tim Vine
One of the UK’s top comedians will open CRE National 2022. Tim Vine, who has been on the UK circuit for more than 25 years, grew up a stone’s throw from an Anglican church. He made a personal decision about faith when he was ‘about 12, at one of those Pathfinder camps’.

‘Belief in God felt natural. I always enjoyed singing “Oh, how good is the Lord”, and all those great ones like “When the road is rough and steep, fix your eyes upon Jesus.”’ He will open CRE at 10am, Tue 11 Oct ‘as long as I have a red ribbon between two free standing poles and a large pair of scissors!’ He will then be interviewed by Steve Legg, editor of Sorted, the UK’s leading Christian men’s magazine (11am, Tue 11 Oct)
