CRE South West aims to boost local business with 100 exhibitors at Westpoint

CRE South West is no stranger to Devon. However the popular event last took place in 2015 and has been postponed twice due to the pandemic. Now the Christian Resources Exhibition (CRE) is taking place at Westpoint, Exeter on Wednesday 23 February 2022 and Thursday 24th February with some 100 exhibitors.

The theme for the 2022 CRE South West exhibition is “coming out of the pandemic positively and growing beyond it”. The aim of the exhibition is to profile the products and services available to churches, ministries and charities across Devon.

The exhibition has been welcomed by the Bishop of Exeter, Rt Rev Robert Atwell who says it is “a great opportunity to access new resources, ideas and practical tools to meet the many challenges of local ministry.”
