Key Principles

Here are the foundations where we create space for people to experience community. It’s the underpinning knowledge that makes your Festival come alive.

 

1

Preaching happens through our lives

This is because Open Crowd Festivals are within a process of missionwith a real emphasis on role modelling faith and establishing genuine & relevant contact with the community.

2

Children are the stars

Giving every child an experience they will never forget will ensure that child’s family will value and remember you.

3

It’s a celebration

Helping people taste and experience what God’s Kingdom is like. It has a John 10.10 party atmosphere.

4

It is open to anybody

All attractions and activities are for everyone regardless of age and ability.

5

Everything is free

It’s like God’s love. It means that finance is not an obstacle for anyone to join in

6 The life of the team is the ministry They  all know their role, live the values and share a common dream together of a different community
7 Centre games at the heart. This is where the community builds. It is the life and soul of the Festival.
8 Has a U-shape (horseshoe) design This enables people to see each other and to see what is happening at the Festival.      
9 It is not the end It either begins or builds on to your community mission. Don’t make your Festival a standalone event. Make it a bridge- building opportunity
