Christian Presence at Popular Music Festival 

A team from a Baptist church in Somerset teamed up with other churches to run a prayer tent at a local musical festival over the August bank holiday weekend.

The Watchet Music Festival is an otherwise secular event, but for the second year organisers invited Watchet Baptist Church to set up a place of prayer for festival goers.
This year the tent was bigger and better and the team met people from all over the country, chatting with them about our faith and praying with many of them, explained the Revd Carl Smethurst, minister of Watchet Baptist Church.

The prayer tent team also prayed in shifts, day and night through the weekend and met to pray at the church’s festival office four times a day.

‘Once again it proved to be an awesome experience - the weather was kind to us, the atmosphere on-site was great and we had the opportunity to be a Christian presence in an otherwise 'secular' festival,’ said Carl.

‘Please pray with us that those who experienced God at the Festival will continue their journey with him as they return home and back to their normal routines.’
