For 2 years we ran festivals calling together the the church across Northumbria to worship and pray for our region and because God is worthy.
We had an amazing time these 2 years and it was a huge blessing seeing Christians gather: from all over the region.
2018 Festival review
Reviews from 2018 attendees:
"I had an amazing time at Gather Festival North 2018! Amongst the amazing times of worship and prayer, one of the highlights was when I went for a prophetic prayer appointment. Before going into my appointment, I asked God to speak to me about what I should be focusing on with my work. I didn't tell this to the guys praying for me but when they started prophesying - the first guy had a picture that suggested God was going to bring something new for me to work on, the second guy felt the Holy Spirit say that I was a poet and that me and Jesus would be writing a poetry book together and the third guy said he felt God was saying that this new thing would help people experience God. What they didn't know was that only a few months before I'd been writing poetry for the first time in years and that just two days before the festival I had had the idea of collecting some of my poems together to create a poetry book! Had these guys not prayed for me, I think I would have thought of this poetry book as just a good idea, but now I know it's on Jesus' heart too!"

"It’s been wonderful to see and play a small part of the Gather journey over the last 2 years. God has been drawing together hearts and lives to release His kingdom prayer strategy for transformation in the North East. Gather festival is a place where we can bring our worship and our combined ‘Amen’ to all he wants to accomplish. A vibrant place of community, celebration and intercession."
Paul Critchley (Stoke)
"Gather: Festival North has been uniquely encouraging both years, helping me bond deeply with Jesus and enjoy time out in a diverse community of people, looking ahead with big hopes for Northumberland!"

"Amazing weekend of praise, prayer and fellowship for churches across the NE region. Wonderful music, leadership and environment, but above all a terrific sense of unity and purpose. We loved the location, the atmosphere and the people. Looking forward to coming back again!"
