Youth band keep the Ignite flame growing in Norwich

The Ignite Team ran an ‘Ignite Festival in a Day’ at the Cathedral Narthex in Norwich on Saturday November 25, taking many of the elements that make the Ignite Festival so popular.

Praise and worship was led by the Norwich-based band from Youth for Christ(pictured above) whoHamish MacQueen, Director of Youth Service said ‘were amazing’.

He said: "To see a group of young people giving everything they’ve got, passionately singing praise and worship songs, and leading other young people to grasp a sense of the wonder of God was inspirational."

Like the Ignite Festival, the day also included talks, workshops, Adoration, an opportunity to go the sacrament of Reconciliation, and ending with the parish Mass.

"We would like to run similar days, which we are calling ‘Glow’ in different parts of the diocese but we need local people ‘on the ground’ to work with us in organising them. If you would be interested, do get in touch," said Hamish.
