Reading Festival This Weekend

Well it's the August Bank Holiday which means this week some 80,000 extra people, from all over the UK, will start to descend on Reading for the annual music festival.  Aligned with the festival in Leeds, this is the biggest event that hits our town each year and is one fo the cornerstone events in the British music calendar.
For years now churches in Reading have played their part in the festival by helping festival goers who find themselves in problems, by feeding hungry revellers and of course, buy offering them the good news of Jesus.

This year sees followers of Jesus in Reading unite again to come alongside the 80,000 to help, encourage and share the gospel.

Here's a link to the website, to tell you all about what is going on.

If you are here in Reading and are a Christian, please will you consider getting along to get involved.

If you are a festival goer and a Christian, please look out for these guys and encourage them as well as being a good witness yourself.

If you are not a Christian, then why not take the time to see what Christians really believe as you spend time in between the bands that you have come to Reading to enjoy. You may just find yourself surprised, that this is exactly the sort of festival where Jesus would have found himself as he walked on this earth.
