Kingdom Festival launch on May Day
The seventh annual Kingdom Arts Festival will be officially launched on May 1 in Barbados with a host of activities planned for the festival itself to start on August 12 and running through to August 20.
Visionary Kevin Campbell says this national week-long festival is again set to display Kingdom fashion, visual and performing arts, Glow-Worship and the Prayer Room.
Hosted by Island Worship, Kingdom Arts Festival will use the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre for the fashion, the Errol Barrow Centre For Creative Imagination for the visual and performing arts, and the New Dimensions Ministries in Country Road, St Michael, as the base for Glow-Worship and Prayer Room experience.
Kingdom Arts is essentially a display of God’s beauty through the arts. The focus of Kingdom Arts is on music, fashion, dance, culinary and visual arts.
Campbell told High Note that this year’s theme was being kept a secret until the launch.
This week-long festival is a unique blend of creative artistic expression, worship, prayer, and practical teaching about God and the arts, and how this dynamic combo can positively influence a nation.
Check out this other more immediate event coming up. The Ellerton Wesleyan Holiness Church will be having an evening of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs on Sunday at the Ellerton Wesleyan Church in Eustace Lashley Road, Ellerton, St George.
The programme will feature the Ellerton Worship Team and the St Luke’s Anglican Church Choir.
The action gets going from 6 p.m.
Meanwhile, don’t forget the massive May Day gospel extravaganza dubbed Honour Thy Mother, 2016. The organizers say it will be an evening of worship and praise, featuring international gospel minister Lynda Randle on grand piano, mother of gospel Sister Margreta Marshall, regionally acclaimed gospel artist Minister Trenecia Esseboom, NIFCA Award-winning Ki’ann Browne, Kristojay Paul formerly of Gospel 97.5 FM, Ordene Dottin of Sanctuary Empowerment Centre, The Advent Four and Sherice Richards. These will be backed by the SIFA Gospel Choir, SIFA Band and Halal Dance Ministry.
This May Day gospel experience will take place at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre from 6 p.m. and is hosted by minister/singer/songwriter Keann Walters and held under the auspices of Minister Social Care, Constituency Empowerment and Community Development Steven Blackett and wife Eleanor.
Doors open at 5 p.m., but worship begins at 6 p.m. sharp. Remember to dress in your Sunday best.
