An invitation to celebrate the 40th Blessing Anniversary of the 2075 couples blessed in New York City on 1st July 1982 and the 6000 couples blessed in Seoul on 14th October.
To book tickets for the celebration to be held in Milton Keynes on the 17th extending to the 18th September, please email David R. on: 1982UKcelebration@gmail.com
To celebrate the milestone anniversary of forty years under the ambitious banner of:
“World Peace Through Ideal Families”
We invite you and your families to a one-day celebration with an optional second day for those who want to stay overnight, which will include:
Arrival at the Milton Keynes Peace Pagoda at 11am.
We will have an open-air stage for testimonies, family games, embarrass-your-parents stories, a multi-religious blessing from local religious leaders and the planting of a seedling holy oak from Stanton Fitswarren. There will be a photo booth, an ice cream van and pot-luck lunch to share.
In the afternoon, there is paddle-boating on the nearby lake, with a small funfair, a super toddlers playpark and a well-stocked restaurant for those of a more mature age!
We are celebrating the evening in style with a 3-course banquet at the historical Christ the Cornerstone Church – the first truly ecumenical church since the reformation (you might have seen us on Songs of Praise)!
There we will be entertained by a full gospel choir and, subject to booking confirmation, a small classical orchestra.
On day two (Sunday 18th September) participants may enjoy the many facilities that Milton Keynes has to offer, for example: a tour of historic Bletchley Park, ice skating, swimming, real snow skiing for the really adventurous, or a visit to the Tree Cathedral – an arboretum curated by the Parks Trust.
I will prepare a list of local hotels and facilities for those who are interested.
Please confirm your attendance and whether you have any vegetarian or vegan family members for the Saturday evening banquet and concert: 1982UKcelebration@gmail.com
