at Manchester Community College
2019 Spring Renewal was held at Manchester Community College on Saturday, May 11, 2019
“Spring Renewal” is a spiritual renewal and ministry development celebration for the entire Episcopal Church of New Hampshire to deepen our faith and offer tools to practice the Way of Love. We will offer workshops in all seven areas of the Way of Love – Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest.
There will be breakfast, contemplative worship with live music, workshops on spiritual practices and ministry development, a hands-on ministry fair, and a closing “revival” worship. All members of the Episcopal Church are encouraged to attend. We welcome your ideas for music and worship. Any questions or suggestions, please contact Canon Tina Pickering.

Reducing the Environmental Impact of Attending Spring Renewal!
Thank you to all who made efforts to help us reduce the environmental impact of Spring Renewal! So many of you carpooled to the event, brought your own plates and utensils, and helped us keep this a mostly paperless event. We were impressed by the awesome response to the Earth Care raffle. Congratulations to David Almond, a member at St. Andrew’s in New London and one of the wonderful musicians at Spring Renewal, on winning the Earth Care raffle and taking home fresh baked bread and homemade jam! Thank you again to all who participated!
Block One: Renew
