Nationwide Festival of Light 50th Anniversary Film

Nationwide Festival of Light 50th Anniversary Film

It was exactly 50 years ago to the day, on Saturday, September 25, 1971, tens of thousands of people, young and old met together on London’s Trafalgar Square for the largest ever open-air gathering of Christians in British history.

We have created a 35 minute film with Lyndon, Nola and Celia reminiscing on the Nationwide Festival of Light, the birth of CARE and the future we have ahead of us to bring God's truth and transformation to our laws and culture. You can watch this special film celebrating all that God has done and is still doing in and through Christians all accross the nation.

Fifty years ago, on 25 September 1971, tens of thousands of Christians came together for what became known as the ‘Nationwide Festival of Light’, NfoL, in London’s Trafalgar Square. It was the largest open-air gathering of Christians in British history, a rallying call to uphold God’s truth in the face of rising secularisation.
