Soul in the Park was the Transforming Wigan festival day in Alexandra Park on Pentecost Sunday, 15th May, from 12 pm to 4pm.  The festival was a part of our strategy to revive the spiritual heart of our community through the Transforming Wigan movement.

The aim was to have a big celebration of God’s goodness and the presence of His Spirit among His people.  There were activities including worship, prayer, word and story… all of which were different from some of the usual ways we often do things in our church buildings.  There were activities and events for children throughout the afternoon and there was a big ‘Breakout Communion’.  We are pleased that the Bishop of Liverpool joined us for this event.
