Ignite brings an array of talent to online youth festival

From May 8-10 the Ignite Team staged its first online youth festival, with a line-up of speakers and worship leaders from around the UK and beyond.

Ciaran Losasso and Emily Murphy from the Ignite Team made a lively duet as they acted as joint presenters of the festival, adding some entertaining moments of their own as they took part in challenges, or put them out to the online audience.

Bishop Alan Hopes recorded a video introduction to the festival, and then handed over to an array of young contributors, with talents in speaking, leading worship and entertainment.

Shelina Guedues, an Indian-born pharmacist from St Peter and All Souls in Peterborough, led worship on the guitar from her home. You can follow her Youtubes on www.youtube.com/user/shelinaguedes

Jacob De Rusha, speaking from Arizona, told a story about how he discovered mercy and forgiveness, when his parents collected him from the police station. See his website: jacobderusha.wordpress.com

Pippa Baker, from the One Hope project (www.onehopeproject.co.uk) in Sheffield, described how she burst into tears with emotion during her confirmation, and she encouraged young people to experience the Holy Spirit as a present reality

James Samuel did some amazing magic tricks with cards and beakers of water
