Prayer And Worship Event Gathers UK Christians In Preparation For The Largest Church-led Event In A Generation In The North West

Occurring on April 2nd at !Audacious Church, Trinity Way, Manchester, the Festival Manchester Prayer, and Worship event is an opportunity for the united Christian community across the North West to gather, pray and worship in preparation for the biggest Christian mission in the North West in a generation.

Taking place from the 1st-3rd of July, Festival Manchester aims to introduce over 100,000 people across all ages to Jesus and bring region-wide transformation through a variety of events and projects. Over 200 social action projects will also be taking place across the North West in the months leading up to the festival weekend.

Run by hundreds of churches, ministries, organisations, and businesses, in partnership with The Message Trust and the Luis Palau Association, the festival will culminate in a weekend of high-energy gigs, extreme sports, a kids’ zone, funfair, family fun area, and a prayer space in Wythenshawe Park.

The Prayer and Worship event in April will provide a powerful opportunity to excite, envision and equip Christians to step up and step out in mission, encouraging individuals to get involved in their community through local social action projects. The gathering will include worship from Tim Hughes & band and Jake Isaac, as well as teaching from Pete Greig, Andrew Palau, and Andy Hawthorne.

Andy Hawthorne, founder, and CEO of The Message Trust said: “It’s our prayer that through Festival Manchester we’ll see our whole city and region transformed by the good news of Jesus. Christians of all denominations and backgrounds across Greater Manchester and the North West have a key part to play in making this happen. I encourage everyone to get involved and be part of the Festival Manchester Prayer and Worship event on 2nd April, which will be running at both 2 pm and 7 pm to make sure people can choose tickets for the time that suits them best.”

Speaking about the purpose underpinning Festival Manchester, Evangelist Andrew Palau said: Festival Manchester will be a historic weekend, and includes a long-term strategy aimed at bringing churches together with the community to help address real societal challenges – from food poverty to homelessness, children in care, and damage to our environment – whilst also supporting communities with more localised issues such as graffiti and littering. We all have a part to play in seeing transformation across the region”.
