Festival Angels are working at several UK music festivals and events throughout the year with hundreds of volunteers serving in areas such as prayer cafes, detached teams, safe hubs and lost property. Festival Angels is a Christian organisation with a heart to show that Jesus Loves Festivals with volunteers of any faith and none on our teams. Check us out at a festival you are at, follow us on social media or even look into volunteering with us (applications for 2020 will open in the New Year - apologies for the delay)...
Jesus loves festivals? Really? What about the Jesus of stuffy, dusty buildings and old wooden pews? Does he love festivals? Well the Jesus many of our volunteers know is quite different to the one you might have heard about- he loves people, knows how to laugh, and cares about you.
Jesus' teachings are still discussed and debated today, he loved those on the edges of society, he upset the political and religious leaders of the day, he healed the sick, raised the dead and spoke truths about life, faith, spirituality and God. He was also sentenced to a cruel death, murdered on a cross, because he claimed to be the Son of God. His death was part of God's eternal plan! It was God's way of offering life, love, forgiveness, hope, peace and a way to life beyond the here and now. We also believe that death was not the end, Jesus rose from the dead and showed his nail pierced hands to those who doubted.
We invite you to try following Jesus! How? Simples! Ask him by praying "Jesus - I want to start following you. I invite you into my life, to become central to my life. Help me become the kind of person you want me to be. Help me to change to be a blessing to you, to others and to my community. Amen"
