Cedarwood Festival 2019 : An Introduction

18th October, 2018

Cedarwood Festival is a new 3 day independent festival launching in 2019, with a heart to see people gather to worship from all denominations and demographics, to build community, foster unity within the body of Christ, and see Jesus’ name lifted high in this nation. The 72 hour gathering will play host to biblical teaching, non stop worship, prayer & community for all ages, with representations and expressions of worship from all over the UK.

The Story:

The journey began in 2018 when a small group of friends were praying and felt a call to develop a space for for the whole body of Christ to gather to worship on a large scale, for an extended period of time. The North of England has a rich history of revival and we desire to see the Lord move in our generation. The vision has been shared through smaller events in key cities across the north ranging from Sheffield to Edinburgh, with representatives from all denominations, demographics and networks present.

This festival is an outward act of obedience in response to the vision, and our hope is people will come away inspired, encouraged, and equipped to join in the call to see the nations transformed in the name of Jesus.

Core principles:

EVANGELISM (Locally, Nationally, Globally)
UNITY (Community, Family, Church)
JUSTICE (Social, Economical, Biblical)


Cedarwood Festival is not owned by any denomination or network and in 2019 will be delivered by Tenpast Events. Cedarwood Festival is in the process of becoming a Charitable company.


Cedarwood Festival is organised and run by a core leadership and operational team with experience across all types of events. A large team of volunteers and ambassadors from across the UK are making the event happen, all with a heart to see many come to gather to worship God in spirit and in truth.
