JULY 2019



Isle of Wight Christian Music Festival – Lion Heart, July 2019

Ephesians 5:19  “speaking to one another with psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit. 
Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord~
 
Lion Heart, we believe, is a God given vision for an Isle of Wight Christian Music Festival. 
 
We believe that God is love, we believe Jesus came among us and died for us and we believe God is wanting to move powerfully through this country and music is a great way to bring believers of all denominations and non believers together to worship and experience God.
 
Joe Shurmer, heading up the Leadership Team of Lion Heart says revival, reclaiming souls, uniting churches and families, reaching out, planting seeds for life-long change is his heart for the Festival, as it is unanimously with the rest of the team.
 
Our reason for believing this is God’s leading is primarily because it is scriptural, plus a seemingly random group of people had been thinking the same idea much at the same time.  ‘Mysteriously’ these people were drawn together and ‘coincidently’ this core group have relevant and complimenting skills and experience – almost as though we were all being primed!? Even the name Lion Heart came to us through group prayer and after doing a bit of  ‘googling’ unsurprisingly we found the name to be available for use and Trade Marking .
 (Acts 4:32 Now a full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common}
 
Location booked:   The County Show Ground,  who it transpires, have been wanting  some sort of Christian Festival on the site and have offered us the site at a very reasonable price in July (prime time) and they have so  kindly given us lots of very good advice and assistance.
 
Connections:  Christian Bands and Christian speakers have already been approached and we are now in communications with Rend Collective, Bright City Lights, Mike Pilavachi of Soul Survivor, Burn 24/7, Lucy Gimble and others who have all been very supportive and enthusiastic.   (2 Corinthians 2:12 When I came to the city of Troas to preach the Good News of Christ, The Lord opened a door of opportunity for me).
 
The Isle of Wight is famous for its festivals, many thousands make the journey to secular festivals here, so we know  it is a tried and tested venue.  Now it is our time to step out in faith and honour God with worship and praise, songs and dance and may the prophesies of Revival on this island really come alive.
 
Your Part:  Please pray to ensure we are following God’s leading  (Proverbs 16:9 ESV “The heart of man plans his way, but The Lord establishes his steps”).  Please pray to release all necessary skills, experience, funds, for the right doors to open and any wrong ones to shut and protection for all those involved.  This is a massive undertaking, it is stepping out in faith in a big way – please support us.
 
If you feel prompted to get involved:  whether it be by contributing resources, time, skills, catering, design, labour, offerings, prayer, please do contact us. 
 
And tell everyone you know .....
Isle of Wight Christian Music Festival – Lion Heart, July 2019
 
The Lion of Judah is on the move ! 
A quote from David’s Tent Music Festival from several years ago that ‘strangely’ got referred to again as we attended David’s Tent this August.
 
God Bless and we look forward to hearing from you
