The Big Jubilee weekend in June saw 25 churches across Salisbury work togehter to reach out to our neighbours through the 'Big Saturday', 'Big Lunch' and the 'Big Night Out'. Following on from this great success, our next venture is the 'Big Spring Clean', giving Christians the opportunity to very pracitcally put their faith into action - and serve the poor people of Salisbury.
Modelled on the 'Big Saturday' initiative pioneered by St Paul's Church, the Big Spring Clean was a day of community action seeing members of local churches placed in small teams in pre-assigned placements. Tasks included painting and decorating, gardening, tidying and cleaning for local residents in need.

Big Jubilee Weekend - 2nd - 3rd June 2012
25 churches worked together over the first weekend in June to create the “BIG Jubilee Weekend” – a series of opportunities for church members to engage with local people, with a particular focus on those in need.
400 church members put their faith very practically into action on the BIG Saturday as over 60 teams of small work parties visited local residents in need of gardening, decorating and tidying. All the placements had been referred by local agencies and churches.
The fun continued on the Saturday evening with the BIG Night Out. Held in the grounds of the Cathedral School, the event saw over 450 people from all walks of life attend a “celebration of all that is good”. With bouncy castles, barbecues, face painting, and live music, the event was a resounding success – despite the classic English summer weather!
The BIG Weekend concluded with a variety of BIG Lunches hosted by local churches right across the city, in line with the national initiative. Many churches worked together to ensure none of their neighbours ate alone.
“This was the largest united activity by Churches Together in a long time,” said Jon Langford, who co-ordinated the BIG Weekend. “It was an absolute privilege to see God take such a mix of people and use them all to such immediate effect amongst such a wide-range of people. This was a very special weekend.”
Challenged by the verse from 1 John 3:18, “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth”, the churches of Salisbury intend to continue to reach out practically to their neighbours. This is but the beginning!
