“See, I am doing a new thing!” (Isaiah 43:19 NIV)
The weekend programme includes 3 main talks, lively praise and worship & drama on the main stage, with a wide variety of workshops on both days.
We have Mass and opportunities for Adoration, Reconciliation & prayer ministry, as well as time for chatting with friends old and new.
Parents can ‘make space’ for themselves, as there is a full programme for all children & young people from the age of 3, plus a crèche for parents and toddlers.
We welcome everyone, young or old, families & singles - come and join us in Plymouth - set sail, like the Pilgrim Fathers, for a New World!

Fr. Oscar Ardila
Fr. Oscar was born and raised in Colombia. He trained and worked as an actor before moving to London, where he felt the Lord calling him to the priesthood. “Christ was calling me to lend my body to the Church in order to act in His own person; to proclaim His Word and to see how the Holy Spirit worked, renewing humanity.” He served as deacon for a year at Westminster Cathedral before ordination in 2014, and is now Assistant Priest at St. Peter’s, Crownhill, as well as Chaplain to Missio Ad Gentes of the Neochatecumenal Way, based in Plymouth.
Charles is an international speaker and author, addressing audiences from Australia to Norway and many points in between. He is a past president of International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services (during which time he had an office in the Vatican and enjoyed regular meetings with Pope John Paul II), and a life member of the English National Service Committee. Charles and his wife Sue are the founders of Celebrate.
We will also be energised and inspired by RISE theatre, a professional Christian theatre company with a passion for delivering exciting, original, transformative theatre.
