This August, over 1000 young people are set to converge at Birmingham City Church on August 5th for the 10th anniversary for the Midnight Oil Summit (MOS), founded by Seth Pinnock – one of the most well-known young leaders within Britain’s Black Christian community.
Seth launched the event aged just 17, and is excited about his forthcoming event. He shared, “I’m looking forward to Midnight Oil’s 10th Anniversary Celebration. It’s come a long way since we hosted our first event at the age of 17, and packed bags in Asda to raise money to fund it.”
He continued, “Midnight Oil Summit has dramatically impacted and transformed the lives of those that have attended over the year. It has provided opportunities for outstanding young Christian leaders and artists to share their ministry gifts on a national platform and, due to the teaching that young people have received, many have gone on to start businesses, ministries or even renew their faith and become active in the church. These are great results of which we are very proud.”
There will be a range of activities at MOS, including: a charity launch party, a barbecue for the general public, and a special live album concert and recording by Seth’s band, ‘A New Thing’.
Special guests at this year’s Midnight Oil Summit include BBC TV Voice contestant, Israel Allen; singer Becca Folkes; worship leader Mark Beswick; Lucy Grimble; Charles Dada; Rev David Shosanya and Lord Michael Hastings.
Seth stated, “I believe this year’s Midnight Oil Summit will be truly transformative for those that attend, and mark a new era in Midnight Oil and the various projects we oversee.”
