Please read and share this letter with your church leadership, finance team or church council, and prayerfully consider how your church might support the work of Creation Fest.

CREATION FEST EXISTS TO SHARE THE GOSPEL AND ENCOURAGE THE CHURCH
We are proud to be a free-to-attend, gospel-centred festival in the UK. We are free because we believe that the good news of a God who loves us should be freely shared, freely heard, and free for all.
“What then is my reward? That in my preaching I may present the gospel free of charge, so as not to make full use of my right in the gospel.”
1 Corinthian 9:18 (ESV)

Our aim is to put on a brilliant, free, fun festival that brings Christians closer to Jesus, and that is accessible and attractive to those who don’t know God, or who are on the fringes of church community.
The need to share the gospel and equip the church is as great as it ever has been. Creation Fest continues to grow year-on-year, but we need the support of individuals and churches who will stand with us and be part of this vision to keep Creation Fest free and reach the lost for Christ.

Partnering with Creation Fest
When Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem to rebuild the walls of that ruined city, some people gave money to fund the repairs. Some people physically worked on the walls, and yet more people prayed. In the same way, there are three ways that your church can partner with Creation Fest:
1. GIVE
We are praying for 50 churches to partner with us in 2017 and commit to regularly investing just £20 a month. Along with other fundraising strategies, this will enable us to start reducing our reliance on one large US-based donor, who has already indicated their intention to reduce funding over coming years.
Our Need: We want to keep Creation Fest free at the point of entry to ensure that as many people – specifically those who do not already know Christ – have as much opportunity as possible to hear the gospel. 50 UK churches investing £20 per month would give us £12,000, and enable 350 people to come to Creation Fest totally free of charge.
Our Ask: Will you consider investing in what God is doing here in Cornwall by supporting the work of Creation Fest? Go to www.creationfest.org.uk/donate to set up a standing order or find out more.
2. COME
Bring your family, youth group or some friends from church and camp at the festival. With great music, teaching, a full kids and teens programme, skate ramp, seminars, arts and fitness streams, fireworks, bonfires and barn dances, there’s something for everyone. Or get involved and be one of the 350 volunteers from around the world that make Creation Fest possible. From cake bakers to kid’s workers, there’s a role to suit everyone.
Our Need: Whether it’s attending with your family, coming as part of a church group, or signing up to volunteer, come along to this year’s Creation Fest and experience all that God has for you.
Our Ask: Sign up online to camp or volunteer at this year’s festival: www.creationfest.org.uk/volunteer

3. PRAY
We know that the prayers of the saints are mighty and powerful. As much as we can dream, plans will not become a reality unless we have others join us in praying for God to do a mighty work through the festival.
Our Need: Please pray for the vision of Creation Fest and for us to be diligent in seeking the Lord’s will to drive it. For protection and good health for the core team and volunteers, for financial provision, for salvation and for deepening partnerships with the local church.
Our Ask: Sign up online to keep up-to-date with all the latest Creation Fest news and pray for us as we plan for this year’s festival. www.creationfest.org.uk/news

Thank you for partnering with Creation Fest and investing in the Kingdom.

Blessings,
The Creation Fest Team
