What is CityFest?

CT CityFest is a region-wide movement focused on serving the region and proclaiming the Good News. It came about as a result of years of prayer and planning by dozens of leaders in Fairfield and New Haven Counties and the surrounding Southwestern Connecticut area. The vision is to see the Christian community come together in greater unity, service, and proclamation – showing the community at-large the joy, peace, and love of Jesus Christ.

This movement is focused on encouraging unity and collaboration across all communities, denominations, and ethnicities. Together, as the Body of Christ, we want to celebrate and accelerate the work of the Church, helping further influence culture, change lives, and inspire other cities.

It culminates with a series of outreach events strategically designed to share the love of Jesus with key groups of people in our community, including university students, business/civic leaders, women, prisoners, etc. The service initiatives will kick off this summer, and the final event, scheduled for August 2022, is an outdoor, family festival to celebrate this amazing effort and share the gospel with thousands through the ministry of evangelist Andrew Palau.

 

Black Rock is excited to be partnering with CityFest and Andrew Palau for the upcoming festival to reach out to the community and friends.
