Lighthouse Gospel Festival, Riverside Park

I went to the Riverside Park today to show my support at the Lighthouse Gospel Festival. This is a free event and features live praise and worship, as well as music, from gospel bands and church groups. This is a community event organised by Christians, all are welcome.

It was very quiet for the first night, hopefully more residents and visitors will be able to attend tomorrow and Sunday. I really enjoyed the music, well worth a visit. To finish the night, although I had explained earlier that I am not allowed to make any speeches or act in any official capacity as the mayor had not received an official invite, I was asked to come to the stage (as a ‘focal point’) so a prayer could be said for the leadership of a town that the Lighthouse festival team were attending.
