Mike Pilavaci, Debra Green, Roy Godwin of Ffald-y-Brenin and Russ Parker (below) have confirmed as main tent speakers at Connect 2013, Dorset’s worship, teaching and ministry event.

The four-day inter-church event will take place over the weekend of 24-27 May 2013 at Holton Lee near Poole.

Seminar speakers are still being booked and will include Adrian Snell.

Nearly 2,000 people attended the last Connect in July 2011, representing around 30 churches from around Dorset. This year 50 churches are expected to participate.

The family-focused programme will include seminars, interest groups, activities, evening celebrations, youth and children’s events and optional camping.

Worship bands from local churches will lead worship in the afternoon and evening main tent sessions.

Organiser Phil Read said: “The first events in 2010 and 2011 exceeded our expectations in every way and feedback from church leaders ever since has been extremely positive. 

“Holton Lee is a perfect setting, with 350 acres of beautiful landscape including woodland and meadows alongside Poole Harbour and near the Purbeck Hills.”
