About Stay Awake

'Stay Awake has come about from listening to God's calling and trusting in his voice and his prompts. For a long time, I have been wanting to run an event for the local area to unite Christians, to allow us to go deeper with Jesus and to learn more about God's word and truths. There had been no Godly promptings until recently when this changed and God's calling became clearer than ever. It will be a day where we can receive Jesus through Mass, praise and worship and spoken word. I have put this event in the hands of God and am allowing him to lead us in the right direction.

Stay Awake was founded on the following verse from the Gospel of Mark,

Verses 32-37...

"“But as for that day or hour, nobody knows it, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son; no one but the Father. Be on your guard, stay awake, because you never know when the time will come. It is like a man travelling abroad: he has gone from his home, and left his servants in charge, each with his own work to do; and he has told the doorkeeper to stay awake. So stay awake, because you do not know when the master of the house is coming, evening, midnight, cockcrow or dawn; if he comes unexpectedly, he must not find you asleep. And what I am saying to you I say to all: Stay awake!”


This years theme is from Revelation 22:17...


"The Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come!' Let everyone who listens answer, 'Come!' Then let all who are thirsty come: all who want it may have the water of life, and have it free."
