How you can help

  • PRAY for us, for the festival and for all the related work and activities we engage in.

  • INVITE as many people as you can to the festival.

  • ORGANISE a Church Alliance meeting at your church where we can worship and pray together, we'll provide some gospel music and share some information about the festival.

  • BUY TICKETS - you may wish to donate these to friends, family or colleagues - especially those who would never attend a gospel event

  • DONATE - We need your help as we're a small charity that wouldn't be able to do this work without your financial support. Your giving will enable us to impact lives during the festival and and withiin the roll out of our Gospel Music into Schools programme across the country. Help us infiltrate secular and mainstream culture with gospel music and its message!

What is gospel music?

The Gospel Music Industry Alliance identifies UK Gospel Music as derived from the African, American and Caribbean musical experience relating to the Christian faith. It had a profound impact on the development of popular music throughout the 20th century.

The Liverpool Gospel Music Festival, whilst acknowledging and valuing the roots of the genre in Christianity, black culture and spirituality, welcomes people of all faiths, ethnicities and identities.

Why a Gospel Music Festival? Why Now?

Gospel Music is an inclusive, joyful, uplifting, moving music genre that celebrates the stories, histories, cultures and achievements of black communities.

Much modern mainstream music, as well as many genres of music of black origin, owe their origins and inspirations to gospel music. However, these roots often go unacknowledged and unrecognised.

Gospel musicians are fantastic, talented artists, and gospel music is a popular artform, particularly among black communities, but there is no mainstream UK gospel music festival.

These are times of profound challenge. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, ever-present racial tensions, political unrest and a cost of living crisis that has many people living in fear, this is now an ideal time for gospel music, a musical genre which celebrates hope, life and love. A celebration of gospel music is a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit.

This festival will connect families and communities with music that combines positive, uplifting messages with an unflinching acknowledgement of the difficult realities of the world, creating an experience of great meaning and hope.

 

It will also, through the allied gospel music into schools programme, bring widespread education of the contribution of black people to the culture and music enjoyed by all in the UK.
