On the Canals in June… enjoy a free boat ride!

Canal Ministries and the Boaters Christian Fellowship join us once again for a week of fun, activities and mission from the 12th-19th June, which includes free boat rides along the canal!

Bookings for these free boat trips are now open! These can be accessed from the canal tow path via Phelps Road, MK2 3FD and will last around 40 minutes, followed by refreshments on the canal side afterwards. You can book by phoning *number redacted*.

There are two boats for the trips:

‘Ten Thousand Reasons’, which has disabled access

‘The Beacon’, which does not have disabled access

Boats are available hourly on the following days:

  • Sunday 12th – Afternoon (‘The Beacon’ only).
  • Monday 13th, Tuesday 14th, Friday 17th – Morning and Afternoon.
  • Wednesday 15th June – Afternoon only.
  • Saturday 18th June – the Family Fun Day. Trips on this day are not bookable, but on a turn-up basis only.

To book boat trips on any of these days (except the Saturday), simply phone *number redacted* to secure your place.

Update: Spaces are no longer available, now the week has ended.
