Festival Details

The Knock Summer festival is three days filled with talks on subjects that matter, workshops, music, prayer and so much more.

The festival is a chance for people (18-35) to step out of the busyness of our everyday lives and take a chance to see where is God in my life?

It’s a chance to ignite, explore and strengthen your faith in a laid back, open and friendly environment.

‘The atmostphere in the chill out marquee was relaxed and welcoming. The weekend overall was one to be remembered’.

“It was great!! Countin down till next year already!!” says one festival goer. 

“I had a brilliant time at the Youth festival. I will definitely be back again next year” said another.
