Festival Manchester is coming. The biggest Christian mission in the region for a generation.

Three days of high-energy gigs, a huge kids’ zone, fun fair, extreme sports and family fun area are just some of the things to expect as we gather in summer 2022 and share the love of Jesus.

We’re dreaming big and want to see tens of thousands of people join us and hear the message of hope.

But it’s about more than just three days. Festival Manchester is about 18 months of the church stepping up and stepping out to introduce people across the region to Jesus. Together, we’ll unite in prayer, mission and action on a scale never seen before.

Word and deed go hand-in-hand. So, as well as telling people about Jesus we’ll show them his love too. The church and thousands of volunteers will take to the streets with ‘Love Where U Live’ social action projects where we’ll clear gardens, pick up litter and breathe new life into forgotten parts of the community. As we work, we’ll get to know the people who live there and invite them to the festival weekend.

Build-up events will also take place across the region reaching out to schools, prisons, business leaders, women and many other groups in our society, making sure that everyone gets to hear the good news.

Organised by The Message Trust and Luis Palau Association, the local church is at the heart of Festival Manchester. Our power is in our unity. As we come together, we’ll see thousands of people equipped to share their faith, people passionately praying for their friends, the church stepping out and tens of thousands of lives impacted.

More details will be announced over the coming months, so do keep checking back to hear all the latest news.  Or stay up to date by following us on Instagram or Facebook.
