CRE South West at Westpoint, Exeter now rescheduled for February 23-24 2022

With a ban on large public gatherings in place for the foreseeable future, Christian Resources Exhibition have postponed CRE South West until early next year - the new dates are February 23-24 2022.

CRE owner Steve Goddard said: "The impressive roll out of the vaccination programme is making things look more hopeful for us all. However, we think it will be a while yet before large-scale indoor events will be sanctioned."

Originally, the exhibition at Westpoint, Exeter was due to be held next month – but finding purpose in life’s second choices is the timely theme of a new book by Jeff Lucas (pictured). The much-loved Bible teacher and author will open CRE National (Oct 12-14 2021, Sandown Park, Surrey) and introduce us to the biblical story of Daniel and friends, deported and forced into a form of lockdown.

"There are so many lessons we can learn from their experiences," said Jeff. "In fact, much of the Bible is written from lockdown, whether it’s Daniel and his friends, Joseph, Esther or the apostle Paul. Their stories show us how to thrive rather than just survive."

Steve Goddard added: "With more than 70 per cent of the floor space already taken at Sandown Park, we look forward to celebrating some steps on the long road back to normality. While the internet has been a lifeline over the past 12 months, people still prefer to meet the person behind the product. Face to face beats mouse to mouse – every time! In fact, nothing beats trying it on, tasting it, sitting on it, hearing it, discussing it and comparing it. Nothing beats CRE!

"The Association of Event Organisers has worked closely with the Government to suggest timely best practice in light of Covid-19. With this in mind, new measures at our exhibitions may include foot pedal-activated hand sanitisers, decontaminating spray, protective screens at visitor registration, messaging reminders, one-way systems and socially-distanced seminar rooms, toilets and breakout areas.

"Who would have thought all this would be necessary 12 months ago? But we are grateful to friends who have prayed for and joined us on an unexpected journey. Our continued prayer is that, as we look back, we will see how a greater good has come from these extraordinary days – and that being prepared to make the best of second choices made all the difference."
