A major two-day religious conference organised by the Salvation Army is all set to take place in Doncaster this weekend.

Roots Doncaster will take place on Saturday and Sunday at The Dome and will be last in a series of recent meetings staged by the organisation to offer Christian teaching and guidance.

The gathering is for all ages and for people passionate about mission and spiritual renewal with The Salvation Army and the wider Christian church.

A spokesman said: “With inspiring teaching, great resources, dynamic worship, youth and children’s programmes and so much more, Roots has something for everyone.”

The conference was started 19 years ago and, for many years, the festivals have helped inspire people across the region.

Major Drew McCombe, Territorial Evangelism Secretary and Roots event leader, said: “We want to open the doors for our final Roots event to everyone – whether you have been before or have heard about it but never been.

“It is going to be a great celebration. But our focus will be forward not back.

“Roots may be coming to a close but the mission of The Salvation Army does not – and will continue.”

The event will cover social justice, a subject deeply ingrained in the DNA of the Salvation Army.

Andy O’Grady, events and conferencing manager at Doncaster Culture And Leisure Trust, said: “We are delighted to be hosting such a prestigious event.

“I am sure everyone will have a fantastic time and we look forward to welcoming them to the Dome.”
