Cardiff and Newport LIFT events set the stage for Higher

Published on March 1, 2018

February 2018 has been a powerful month for Message Wales. During the weekend of 9-11 February, the team hosted two LIFT events and over 60 people gave their lives to Jesus!

The Friday night started off strong with LIFT in Cardiff. Freedom Church, Cardiff was packed out with over 250 young people. Dynamic performances by BrightLine and Chip Kendall set the stage for an inspiring gospel talk by Daniel Eduardo from BrightLine. During the appeal 57 young people responded to the gospel! God always exceeds our expectations with these events and it was an amazing night.

On the Saturday night, we headed to Newport City Church to launch our first LIFT event in Newport. As over 50 young people arrived they were treated to energetic performances by Chip Kendall and SoulBox. Then 11 young people committed to Christ after Chip Kendall presented the gospel!

It was amazing to see the excitement of youth leaders after experiencing their first LIFT event in Newport. As the Message Wales team prepares for the Higher Tour in South Wales this November it was such an encouragement for us to see churches in the Newport area catching the vision.

After the event, Phil Mann the youth worker from Liberty Church shared the following statement with us:

‘For me, it was great to see different churches across our city work together, worship together and lead in unity to see Jesus impact the lives of this generation in our city!’

We believe that LIFT is just the beginning of what God wants to do through Higher South Wales this November and we are expecting even greater things in the coming months.

Our next LIFT events will be part of the Higher South Wales Regional Launches in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea and the Valleys in May and June 2018. For more information about the Higher Regional Launches contact Caitlin Woodington at or on 02920512247.
