READY, STEADY, GO!...
was the theme for the 2011 International Christian Resources Exhibition in a year when, as a Nation, we prepare to host the world's premier sporting event, the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Just like athletes training to participate church leaders, youth and children's workers, in fact anyone involved in leadership needs to be READY, STEADY and willing to GO to serve our church community and beyond. This theme was brought together by Lord Brian Mawhinney, president of More Than Gold who opened the exhibition saying that 'There is no better opportunity for local churches to come together and stick together permanently - than getting involved in next year's Olympic and Paralympic Games.'
That's why there was no better place for over 10,000 visitors to equip themself and their church than at CRE.
Over 400 exhibitors from puppet suppliers to clerical vestments, church furniture to mission organisations guaranteed that the visitors were able to find what they needed to equip their Church or mission.
CRE is more than just an exhibition. In four days there were over 100 seminars, a full arts programme, and a series of special events and conferences.
