Thy Kingdom Come Beacon Event - Guildford
Sun 4 June 2017, 16:30 – 20:00 BST
Come and gather on the day of Pentecost for a huge Beacon event at Guildford Cathedral for people of all ages and stages of life and faith. There are two events; you can come to either, or both, of these. The service in the Cathedral is especially for young people - from secondary school age to college and uni students. Tickets to BOTH events are free of charge.
4.30-6.00pm Prayer and Food Festival. Church groups from across the region will pilgrimage to Stag Hill to enjoy food, prayer, music and fun! There will be hot dogs, ice-cream, prayer tents, Psalm Drummers, candy-floss, poets, inflatables and live bands. You can bring a pic-nic or buy food.
6:30-8:00pm Pentecost Celebration service in the Cathedral. At the end of 'Thy Kingdom Come' week of international prayer we’ll gather to worship Jesus, be empowered by the Holy Spirit, and pray that others will come to know Him. Pete Greig is hosting, with worship led by the Boileroom Ignite band.
Getting there: we're inviting you to journey with your church or youth group as a pilgrimage by walking to the Cathedral from your local church. There won't be any parking on site at the Cathedral, except for those with a blue disabled badge. If you live too far away to walk the whole way, take public transport to Guildford and walk up Stag Hill to join the celebration!
Register for free tickets above– If you are under 18 you must be accompanied by someone over 18, so ask a parent / church youth leader to organise a group.
If you want to come to both events, you will need a ticket for both! All tickets are free!
If you’re organising a GROUP you must be aware of the following:
Safeguarding – if you are bringing under 18’s as part of a youth group, it is your responsibility to bring the correct number of supervising adults with DBS certificates and safeguarding training. For the duration of the whole event you must take full responsibility for supervising all the young people in your care.
Risk assessment – a risk-assessment for the site and the service in the Cathedral has been completed. Youth Leaders will need to conduct their own risk assessments re travel arrangements etc.
Disabled provision – there will be a BSL interpreter during the cathedral service and there is parking available at the Cathedral only for vehicles displaying a blue disabled parking badge. Should you require communication support or have particular access requirements for the service in the cathedral, please email email@example.com at least 2 weeks prior to the event.
Cathedral capacity - there is limited capacity for the cathedral service, and we may need to prioritise entrance for young people and students, in which case we will provide seating in the Cathedral Marquee with the service relayed to screens. A ticket to the service does not guarantee you entrance.
