NightfeverHoly Name Church, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PG
Friday 2nd March 2018
The concept behind Nightfever is very simple, the church remains open from 7pm – 10pm, bathed in just candlelight. On the altar is the exposed Blessed Sacrament. Live music is softly played in the background. The atmosphere is one of beauty and of peace.
Our volunteers are outside, in pairs, simply just inviting passers by to come in and light a candle. The response to the invitation varies, but a surprising amount of people come in and their breath is taken away by the beauty. Many are struck by the beauty and ask to stay. Some wish to talk, some just remain in silence.
Afterwards we retire to the chaplaincy next door for some pizza and to share our experiences – Come along and join the team!
