Soul Survivor is a five day event where thousands of us gather together to journey with God seeking Him, praising Him, listening to His word and praying for each other.
The main focus of the events are morning and evening meetings where we spend time worshipping God with music, learning more about Him through His word (the Bible) and waiting on the Holy Spirit to change us and equip us to live lives for Him. As well as main meetings and seminars we have a bunch of venues from chilled out cafes through to awesome gigs!
Soul Survivor is about following Jesus better, so is really aimed at (Christian) young people, though you don’t have to be a Christian to come or part of any particular denomination. We spend times seeking God in our main meetings though these aren’t compulsory… there is loads of other stuff to do. Everyone is welcome, whether they class themselves Christians or not.
As well as main meetings and seminars we have a bunch of venues from chilled out cafes through to awesome gigs… it’s pretty fun!

Pentecost is the church’s birthday… the perfect time to celebrate the Christian faith.
Pentecost Festival started in 2008. In collaboration with Christian organisations and local churches, the streets of London were filled with over 100 events. Five years later and Pentecost Festival has attracted tens of thousands of people to events across the capital. The Festival has seen the Church leave the building and creatively connect with society. The Festival has included a variety of events in coffee shops, parks, theatres and night-clubs, as well as iconic venues such as Leicester Square, the O2 arena, Marble Arch and even a boat on the Thames. The Festival has also featured on BBC ONE.
The biggest birthday party ever!
From 2013 we want to see Pentecost Festival grow even bigger, spreading across the UK . We want you to help us host ‘The Biggest Birthday Party Ever’. By providing training, resources and expertise, Pentecost Festival plans to help empower local churches to organise at least one community event and become ‘Party Hosts’.
Find out more about the festival and how your church can take part at http://www.pentecostfestival.co.uk.

The new album from the Rend Collective Experiment was launched yesterday. Described on Cross Rhythms as combining “the honesty of Elbow, the surges of Sigur Ros, the passion of Celtic soul and the off kilter inventiveness of Sufjan Stevens into the worship music arena”, Rend Collective Experiment is a unique outworking of a desire to build an extended family of worshippers seeking God together.
The album was recorded around a campfire on Ballyholme Beach, N.Ireland with a group of people invited via social media – this short video tells the story behind the album:
