Festival Pastors ask for Latitude prayer support 

As the Latitude Festival confirmed it will go ahead in late July at full capacity as part of the government’s Covid Event Research Programme, the team behind the Christian Festival Pastors have appealed for prayer support for their work.

Liz Livey, Prayer Encourager for Latitude, said: “Once again Festival Pastors have the great privilege of being invited to serve at the Latitude Festival taking place during the weekend July 22-25. This major all-age festival of art, music, creativity, fun and relaxation is based at Henham Park, Suffolk, with an expected attendance of 40,000 people.
“We know that nothing works without prayer and would love to know that our Christian family are supporting ‘Love Latitude’ in prayer once again,” said Liz.
The Town Pastors family gathers at Latitude, represented by volunteers from all Town Pastor schemes in Norfolk and Suffolk, working under the banner of Festival Pastors.
“We are there to serve, pray and care for those attending,” said Liz. “Due to Covid last year, as with many other festivals, Latitude was cancelled, greatly impacting those whose livelihoods depend on such events.
“We have recently been invited to return to serve at Latitude. This year we will not be providing a café, but pastors and base team will cover the daylight hours. Prayer continues to be at the very heart of Town Pastors and in previous years intercessions have made a huge difference and brought immense encouragement to the team. Once again, we would like to invite you to stand with us in prayer.”
If you would like some more information or would like to be added to the list of people praying for the ministry of the Festival Pastor team, please contact Liz at: eliz.livey@ntlworld.com
