With the ongoing challenges facing us all at the moment, we have taken the decision to cancel our 2021 Festival. Whilst it is deeply disappointing not to be able to gather in person next year, we believe that this is the right call, and that it's better for everyone to make it now. Full details on refunds have been emailed out to ticket holders.
Instead of gathering at Stoneleigh, we are going to host our first global online event drawing in our wider family of churches from around the world over that bank holiday weekend. From 29th-31st May 2021, we'll gather online to celebrate all that God is doing amongst us, even during this difficult season. Our hope and expectation is that this will be a significant moment in the history of our movement – enabling us to connect as a truly global family. Look out for more details on that in the new year! ... See MoreSee Less

Whilst those in the West contend with the second wave of COVID-19, there are ongoing challenges for those in the developing world. The Catalyst Crisis Fund has been supporting work in Kenya over the past few months - here's a quick update from Kevin in Nairobi:
"We are blessed for the grant that has been very important for us. We have supported over 30 families ourselves and 10 pastors with food and medical aid for their congregations- many families are on the verge of being evicted for failure of rent payments. Most do hand-to-mouth jobs, and most of church members can't go to work due to how the pandemic has affected us.
Through food distribution many have joined our church, and we have reached the community and also started a fellowship in a Muslim area. We also had chance to feed the orphans and the needy children. People are still coming to church for food support, but we have very little food in our stores. But we are trusting God all shall be well. I pray for favour to continue feeding the church members. Thanks for the love towards us in Nairobi Kenya."
Please do keep praying for Kevin and the church in Kenya as they keep serving the communities there in the weeks and months ahead. ... See MoreSee Less
