Churches in Kendal are joining forces with Manchester's Message Trust to reach out to Cumbria's youth this autumn.
Four-piece band Brightline will be playing at Ignite the Light 2015 (#ITL2015) at Stricklandgate Methodist Church on 24 October, set to be one of Cumbria's largest youth gatherings for many years. Some 400 free tickets are available for the night and are expected to be snapped up quickly.
Community worker Rev Jonny Gios explains: "Our desire is to equip our young people, to help them share their stories of how God has changed their lives. We’re praying they will be more condent and know that God can use them massively even at a young age!"
In 2014, ‘Ignite the light’ took place in November and saw more than 250 young people attend a gig with the band ‘Brightline’. The night provided an alternative to Halloween with stories of how Jesus had changed lives. Some 25 responded to the gospel, which brought young people from all over Cumbria, and saw a real sense of unity amongst young people and churches.
Brightline are a four-piece team with a fresh and unique sound, and comprise Jacob (guitar, vocals), Lucy (vocals), Daniel (beatbox, keys) and Joe (drums and percussion). They provide an energetic live show and as well as their own songs, include covers of hits by Emile Sande and Katy Perry. You can find their new EP on iTunes.
Free event tickets are available at ignitethelight2015.eventbrite.co.uk
The initiative also has an Ignite the light Facebook page.
