This Easter Linton Free Church are hosting a special family concert suitable for the whole family. It will take place on saturday 19th March 3-4.30pm. 

This will be a really fun event! It’s full of fast moving action songs, break dancing, funky dance tracks, tricks, illusions, hilarious puppets and sign language songs. Not forgetting some jaw-dropping visual experiments using dry ice and other chemicals. With lots of audience participation and a hefty measure of fun and laughter thrown in, it will make for a colourful and exciting celebration and help us to appreciate our amazing God through the incredible world He’s made.

Doug (Duggie Dug Dug) Horley has a national and international ministry working with children and song writing. He has written some of the most popular christian children’s songs of the last decade including “I’m going to jump up and down (Be Happy)”, “Great Great Brill Brill to have a friend like Jesus” and “We want to see Jesus lifted high”.

Therefore we are in need of some volunteers! If you are at all interested in helping out please get in contact with Lucy asap by emailing her at

Here are some of the areas in need of your help...
Welcoming team, puppetry (training given by Dug himself - 6 people needed please), prayer team, setting up, clearing away, advertising/ publicity. 

Looking forward to hearing from you all!
Love Lucy
