This time last month we were in a beautiful, sunny field seeking God’s presence and praying for revival to reach our lands.
It looked a little bit like this...
The 2019 Wildfires Festival experience was like nothing we’ve seen before; a beautiful mix of ages, churches and cultures learning, growing and praying together.
There were over 3,000 people from all over the world at Wildfires 2019, all packed into a corner of southern England. We met people who’d travelled from Vienna, Cape Town and New York to be there.
We had the privilege of hearing from some incredible contributors: John Mark Comer (USA) and Mark Sayers (Australia) recorded a live version of their podcast, This Cultural Moment (check it out here).
Ele Mumford and Rachel Hughes shared powerful testimonies on the main stage and we also received passionate and incredible words from the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who travelled from Nigeria specifically for the festival.
Over and over again we heard stories of prayer and action bringing transformation to communities, cities and nations.
But the main sessions were only the beginning of the story – 1,000 children and young people gathered in their venues to learn, grow and pray together and share a remarkable time of prophecy, healing and the tangible sense of the Holy Spirit.
In Wildfires Labs, there was a chance to contribute to the conversation; to learn and grow as a community together – sharing stories and experiences.
As well as powerful teaching and learning, there was a generous dose of fun too: time to invest in friendships, drink really good coffee, and celebrate with a final night hog roast party.
So much of Wildfires Festival captures the heart of who we are as 24-7 Prayer and what we’re seeking as a movement: to unite together in prayer for our communities; to invest in them and to see our nations transformed as a result.
