What is Real Lives 2016?

Real Lives 2016 is a series of events hosted by the Mottram & Hatterlsey churches that will take place in a BIG TENT at The Hub in Hattersley. Through the week, we will explore how the Christian faith has transformed and enriched the lives of some well-known and some not-so-well-known people. These people have been impacted by a variety of challenging life events: living with disability, addictions, violence and warfare, bereavement, and religious intolerance.


5 Days | 6 Lives | 1 Story
