HUNDREDS of people, of all ages, gathered together enjoying music and worship for the Isle of Wight's first Christian Lionheart Festival.

Held at the County Show Ground in Northwood, festival-goers enjoyed brilliant weather and the sights and sounds of 14 bands including Roger Samuels, contestant on TV programme The Voice, and Graham Kendrick, known as the father of modern worship music.

The festival started on Friday evening, primarily with Island bands.

Saturday was a full programme of music, speakers and singers from around the UK and abroad.

Sunday morning was akin to church in the open air, with contributions from Danny Oates and Ricardo Erasmus.

Worship was led by Graham Kendrick and Amy Faith Morley.

An exhibition tent of faith ministries, a prayer tent, a children’s activities tent, bouncy castle and slide and food outlets all contributed to the fun and enrichment.

Organisers hope to repeat the event.
