WELCOME TO LOVE CAPE TOWN CITYFEST
The Love Cape Town CityFest is a three-way partnership between African Enterprise (AE), Luis Palau Association(LPA) and more than 700 Churches & Ministries in Cape Town. The vision of the Love Cape Town CityFest is to come alongside the churches and ministries to proclaim the gospel message of Jesus Christ to people of all ages across the city from 2-16 November and make new disciples for Christ through different kinds of outreach events.
DIFFERENT KINDS OF OUTREACHES
FESTIVAL(S) – ADJUSTED PLANS
From the beginning, the plan was to have three festivals in different parts of the city in order to get closer to where the people are, in their own communities. The plan was to have festivals in Mitchell’s Plain, Khayelitsha and the CBD on 2, 9 & 16 November.
Due to a combination of fundraising targets that have not been reached and permit challenges at the CBD & Khayelitsha, the decision was made to reduce the number of festivals from three to one.
LET’S UNITE – ONE CITY – ONE FESTIVAL
The festival will now be at the Westridge Gardens in Mitchell’s Plain on 16 November. We call on the city of Cape Town to unite as one and support this great festival! The hosting team is preparing for more than 20 000 people to attend from all over the city. Please see the transport and parking arrangements for more details.
The festival will be something for the whole family with various activities throughout the day. You are welcome to bring your own camping chairs, blanket and picnic basket, or buy food at the venue.
Registration starts at 09:00. The Program runs from 10:00 up to lunchtime.
KidsGames is a sports and games program that started in 1999 and are now in every country in the world. It is for children aged 6-14 years. There will be a reduced version of the program at the festival, that will include experiential learning games, uplifting spiritual lessons and lots of fun. It will culminate in a mainstage program that will include worship, a message and an opportunity to follow Jesus. For more details about KidsGamesplease visit www.kidgames.com
There will be jumping castles and other activities for toddlers.
ACTION SPORT SHOW
13:30 – 14:30
The show includes BMX, SKATE BOARDING and ROLLER BLADING. DJ Eazy will provide entertainment in between the KidsGames and Action Sports.
MAINSTAGE PROGRAM 14:30 – 18:15
The music program will start at 14:30 with artists like Dr Tumi, Heinz Winckler, Loyiso Bala, Rouchelle Liedemann, Euclid Jacobs, Kinetic IV and Transform DJ’s.

This is a special outreach aimed at reaching non-Christian people of influence that would typically not attend a Christian Festival or go to a church. The event will be at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West on Friday 15 November. The capacity is 250 (25 tables that seat 10 guests). We need Christian table hosts that will invite and sponsor their non-Christian friends. The team will be grateful if Pastors could assist with recruiting suitable table hosts. If you would like to book a table or help recruit table hosts, please contact Ps Joy Chetty (firstname.lastname@example.org 0824097331) or Ps Ricky Naidoo (email@example.com 0746136580).
Believers will gather at locations throughout the city and go out in small groups of 2-5 to reach out to individuals in the area from 09:00 -12:30. The teams will meet at base venues and go out from there. Afterwards all teams will gather at the base again for feedback and handing in follow-up cards. These outreaches will take place on 4-8 November and again 12-15 November. There will be no outreaches on Monday 11 November. For more information and to get involved, please contact Ev Enrico Arends at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0797271515.
