NightfeverHoly Name Church, Oxford Road, Manchester
Friday 7th February 2020
Nightfever takes place on the First Friday of the month at 7:30pm at Holy Name Church, Oxford Road.
The concept behind Nightfever is very simple, the church remains open from 7:30pm – 10:00pm, 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!
