Thousands of people responded to the Gospel during the largest outreach event in Northwest England called Festival Manchester.
Thousands of People
Last July 1-3, the Festival Manchester took place in Wythenshawe Park. It was attended by more than 65,000 people and was deemed by organizers as the largest outreach event in Northwest England. The three-day event was organized by The Message Truth and the Luis Palau Association and was hosted by local churches.
“We have had an outstanding time with the people of Wythenshawe and are delighted that we have been able to share the Gospel with so many,” Luis Palau Association said.
The vision of the event is “to reach the whole region with the good news of Jesus.” At least 3,472 responded to the Gospel during the event.
“This is what Festival Manchester was all about — introducing people to Jesus and seeing lives changed both now and for eternity,” Andy Hawthorne, CEO, and founder of The Message Trust, said, according to Christian Today. “I honestly believe we got to be part of something huge that God is doing.”
The organizers together with the local churches held 18-month outreach projects prior to the event. They facilitated social action projects where they shared the Gospel with people. Thousands also responded to the Gospel in those projects.
The aim of the activities is “to show people Jesus’ love as well as tell them about it. So churches will be heading out to do just this.”
“As is always the case, when the Church comes together in unity, serving the city, encouraging the body, and proclaiming the good news boldly, great things happen. And that is exactly what we saw here in Manchester,” Andrew Palau of The Luis Palau Association said.
