Christian festival Newday returns to Norfolk

Once again Newday, the Christian festival for young people aged 12-19, is coming to Norwich from July 31 – August 7

Since launching in 2004, Newday festival now welcomes more than 6,000 young people each year to the Norfolk Showground. The programme ranges from key Christian speakers, to live worship, social activities and plenty of fun. Each year hundreds of young people make a first time response to the gospel and commit their lives to following Jesus. Every year, the festival has a profound effect on young people’s lives, as they’re inspired to share their faith, shape the communities around them and strengthen their relationship with God.

Mike Pilavachi, evangelist and leader of Soul Survivor said, “I LOVE speaking at Newday. Passion without froth, biblical but not boring, lots of fun but serious about Jesus and pursuing his Kingdom, what is there not to like?!”

There’s so much to get involved in at Newday, in addition to regular seminars and meetings, there are cafés to meet-up and chill out in, a busy concourse area, sports teams, live music, workshops, prayer zone and even a skate park. Whether you’re in the mood to relax and worship with friends or get involved in a new sport or activity, there is something for everyone.

Newday ambassador Sue Parker said, “We’ve had the privilege of seeing God do some incredible things in young people’s lives over the years: decisions to follow Christ, physical healings, deep hurts healed, questions answered, situations transformed, and lives equipped to live fully for Him. We believe that when God grabs hold of a young person’s life, they have the potential to change the world. We call them our Newday Heroes. Simply put, these young people are our future.”
