CCM has a vision to make an impact in the cities of Europe for the sake of God’s gospel, and over the last couple of years we have been working with a church just outside Dresden. In conjunction with this church, we have organised Missionfest, a week in the summer where we can take a large team out there to draw alongside this church and help them in their mission.

During the week the mornings will be spent with the rest of the team in worship, teaching and prayer, before using the afternoons for different forms of community outreach. The evenings will be a time to eat together and relax. As well as the mission activities, there will also be time set aside to play the tourist. Berlin is 3 hours from Dresden, and Prague is only 2 hours away. There is a lot to see in Dresden itself and Swiss Saxony is beautiful.

This is a great opportunity to spend a week in a beautiful part of the world, make new friends, relax and at the same time make a difference for the kingdom of God.
