Over 3,400 people surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ at a Christian festival in the United Kingdom last weekend.

Festival Manchester, a three-day event in Wythenshawe Park, was hosted by hundreds of local churches in partnership with The Message Trust and the Luis Palau Association.

Attendees were treated to live music, worship, prayer, and Gospel messages during the three-day festival that ran from July 1 to July 3. About 3,472 people made professions of faith in response to hearing the Gospel preached.

“This mission was on a scale not seen in a generation. Last weekend alone, over 65,000 people got to hear about Jesus’ love for them, and over 3,400 responded to the good news they heard,” Andy Hawthorne, CEO and founder of The Message Trust, said.

“This is what Festival Manchester was all about – introducing people to Jesus and seeing lives changed both now and for eternity,” he continued. “I honestly believe we got to be part of something huge that God is doing.”

Andrew Palau, the son of late evangelist Luis Palau, rejoiced at the successful turnout as many would come to know the Lord, Christian Today reports.

“As is always the case, when the Church comes together in unity, serving the city, encouraging the body, and proclaiming the good news boldly, great things happen. And that is exactly what we saw here in Manchester,” he said.

“I love the United Kingdom, and I love serving the region with our many friends and ministry partners,” he continued. “A big thanks to The Message Trust and all the local church partners for inviting the Luis Palau Association to help with this city-wide effort.

“What a joy to see the many lives changed through the proclaimed word of God.”

According to CBN News, several Christian music artists performed at the festival, including  Lecrae, Guvna B, Kingdom Choir and Matt Redman.

Those who gave their lives to Christ were encouraged by event organizers to connect with a local church and use Christian resources to further their relationship with Christ.

The event was preceded by an 18-month outreach in the city that entailed sharing the faith with social action projects. According to The Message Trust, the projects were largely responsible for the significant response to the Gospel at the festival.
