ICG planning Feast of Tabernacles in Rye, England
LINDERUDVEIEN, Norway--You're invited to the Feast of Tabernacles in Rye, England, this year, announced Anthony and Margaretha Miles, who live in Norway. The Rye Feast site is affiliated with the Intercontinental Church of God (ICG).
"It is, however, supported by people who come from a number of different small fellowship groups in Europe," said Mr. Miles. "They receive taped sermons from, among others, Garner Ted Armstrong [founder of the ICG], Ronald Dart, Don Deakins and Fred Coulter."
As in previous years, Frank Scherich, along with his wife, Pat, will travel from his home in Texas to serve as one of the festival elders.
The festival, which will follow the Jewish calendar, begins the evening of Sept. 24, with the Last Great Day on Oct. 2.
Rye is an ancient port on the southeast coast of England perched upon a sandstone hill at the estuary of the River Rother. It lies between Folkestone and Hastings.
Rye has many medieval buildings and cobbled streets. Nearby are castles such as Bodiam, Herstmonceux and Pevensey. Not far away are the European capitals of London and Paris.
Services will take place in a museum, the Rye Treasury (of musical instruments).
Rye is the location of a railway station five minutes' walk from the meeting hall. The railway line runs from Eastbourne to Ashford International.
Rye has several first-class hotels in ancient buildings, said Mr. Miles, along with excellent bed-and-breakfast establishments and several self-catering properties.
"We would like people to book their own accommodation," he said.
