Elim Family Festival
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING ELIM FAMILY FESTIVAL 2021
Message from Mark Greenwood and the Elim Family Festival Leadership – February 2021
Following Boris Johnson’s update, and subject to the government roadmap going according to plan, we feel we can now update you on what we hope to happen for this year’s Elim Family Festival.
We are pleased to inform you that we are looking into and working towards hosting Elim Family Festival over a weekend, which could be attended with reduced numbers in person, and online. The weekend would be Friday 30th July – Sunday 1st August. Unfortunately, we would not be able to offer overnight stay on site, but we do feel we could create a place where people can encounter God and meet with each other.
You will appreciate that Elim Family Festival is run by volunteers and so we would value your prayers and support as we work hard to make try and make this year’s festival happen in such a short space of time.
More information will be made available as we develop our plans, including any workers roles that may be required on site to help make this year’s Festival happen, and information on local accommodation for people wishing to stay nearby overnight.
Thank you for your patience; I am sure like me you are longing for some firm plans. Let me reiterate at this point that what we are setting out here is subject to several practical considerations, including the safety of people on site, and the government guidance and roadmap all going according to the government’s current plan. If, for any reason, we are unable to proceed with a physical Elim Family Festival event, we will still be providing an online event as we did last year.
If you had carried your booking over from 2020 you should have received an email from the team. If not please contact the festival administrators – firstname.lastname@example.org

Speakers and Guests
For the next few years Elim Family Festival will be partnering with some of the amazing departments of the wider Elim movement.
In 2020 we will be partnering with Elim Missions as we explore our theme for the year of Sent. We will also have Mark Ritchie as one of our guest speakers. He will bring his Edinburgh Fringe show to Elim Family Festival as well as bringing his creativity and comedy to our various age group settings.
As well as guest speakers and artists, Elim Family Festival boasts an amazing bunch of its own speakers and worship leaders who will help you experience God in a new way as well as sending you home with some stuff to chew over.
