IF YOU’RE looking for some fresh ideas and some brilliant inspiration for your church, the answers are right on your doorstep.

Taking place from May 14-17 at Sandown Racecourse in nearby Esher, the annual International Christian Resources Exhibition (CRE) aims to help equip and empower your church.

And with everything on show from stained glass windows to socks, there is something for everyone.

With more than 300 organisations and exhibitors who can help you address the practical and spiritual needs facing your church and community, if what you’re looking for isn’t there, the chances are nobody does it.

From book publishers to youth specialists, charities to chair manufacturers, ways to worship and what to wear, CRE has it all.

No other event offers you the chance to meet such a remarkable range of suppliers and mission organisations. Every year there are new stands that have never exhibited before so even if you came last year it is worth returning this year.

And it’s not just a trade show.

There are more than 100 practical and inspiring seminars and workshops taking place across the four-day event, including a visit from Tony Campolo, an update on Messy Church, a look at issues facing people in their final years and issues facing women within the Church.

Live music and theatre, cafés, campaigns and more will be available to enjoy … and you’ll be able to shop until you drop with plenty of stalls selling the latest books, CDs, DVDs and gift ideas.

To find out more about CRE, simply visit which is updated regularly. It really is the ‘ideal church show’, and organisers look forward to meeting you there.

XN is pleased to invite you and your friends to CRE International as our guests, saving you up to £6 per ticket!

The exhibition – dubbed the Ideal Homes Show For Churches – takes place in Esher, Surrey from May 14-17.

It’s packed with great ideas to help you and your churches and gives you the chance to meet the people behind some of the UK’s best resources.
