Aims and Objectives:
The aim of Festival Angels is to offer a Christian presence and expressions of Christian service to all those attending and working at the Leeds festival.
Festival Angels will seek to respond to need, be it physical, social, emotional or spiritual and share in the life journeys of those present through encounter and service.
The presence of the Festival Angels will be known by differing means e.g.
Prayer is a central focus of the Festival Angel’s activity and the Prayer Tent acts both as a place sanctuary and encounter. This space will help to creatively engage festival goers in expressing their faith and sharing in the faith of others.
Code of Practice:
Festival Angels will be Christians or people willing to work within the Christian ethos, aged 18+. They will agree to undertake appropriate training as determined by the Festival Angels steering group. During their time on the Festival site they should regard themselves as an ambassador of Festival Angels and more importantly Christ and conduct themselves appropriately. Before being accepted to serve on the team, every Festival Angel must provide the name and contact details of an appropriate referee.
