Festival Manchester 2022 is a partnership between the Message Trust, Luis Palau Association, and hundreds of churches and ministries across the Northwest of England. The Festival itself is happening from the 1st of July to 3rd of July 2022 in Wythenshawe Park, but there are also lots of amazing activities in the months preceding the Festival.
This is an opportunity for the church across the region to stand together in unity, step out in faith by reaching out together. We'll see thousands of believers equipped to share their faith, passionately praying for friends to know Jesus, and actively engaged to show God's love in their communities.
As part of Festival Manchester 2022, there are different elements that churches can choose to get engaged with:
Love Where U Live – Believing to see 200 church-led social action projects from across the NW
Kids and Families – We will be approaching primary schools where we're promoting the festival, teaching songs, and establishing ongoing relationships with Christian teachers, head teachers, and choir leaders.
Youth and Schools – Mission teams and bands will take the Love Where U Live Schools Tour into high schools across Greater Manchester. In assemblies, lessons, and schools' gigs, the gospel will be shared with young people in a relevant way. Through music, we'll communicate the message of hope, and in lessons topics like resilience, wellbeing, identity and prejudice, and discrimination will be taught from a Christian perspective, with teams sharing their personal stories of faith
Evangelism Training sessions – We will be putting on friendship evangelism training sessions, to equip the whole church in evangelism.
Connection with churches, schools and community groups is happening NOW so please register your church's interest as soon as possible on the Festival Manchester website.
