Edgefest is a Summer festival that aims to help people discover and grow in a faith in Jesus and enjoy community across a family friendly environment. We aim to bring families together to enjoy time together across the event and with other people in an atmosphere of Jesus centred lives. We offer a non judgemental, love and grace filled approach to allow people from all backgrounds, struggles, challenges emphasising the grace that we all need to allow ‘the space and time’ each person needs to Jesus and grow into the person He made them to be.
EdgeFest will be back in 2019 and will be bigger than ever. In August 2019, we will aim to see hundreds of families gathering together at Taunton Racecourse for the continuing growth of our new EdgeFest. Great coffee, worship, food, activities, The Lounge to relax and non-stop fun will set the tone for what you will experience at EdgeFest.
Whilst sitting in a “field near Swindon” some of the team who founded and lead the national mens festival called The Gathering pondered as to whether they could build and grow a festival for families that had the same kind of philosophy as the Gathering. A week long holiday that had Jesus right in the centre of everything with loads of fun for children, young people and adults alike. Having already been involved for 10 years with The Edge camp (originally founded by evangelist Don Double) Carl Beech shared this vision with the camp and was duly asked to take the leadership of the Edge on and build the dream!
Laid back, extremely friendly and fun atmosphere. Activities and groups for children of all ages. Youth specific gatherings. Every day Gospel focus. Inspiring worship. A “social hub” to hang out in during good or bad weather. A pastoral care team, loads of laughs. An easy festival to invite family and friends to. Every day has main teaching and worship sessions. Each day there are seminars in the main venue. Every day is space to chill out and relax.
