The Prayer Yurt is a dedicated space for prayer throughout Cliff Festival. It will be open for organised activities such as prayer stations, Godly Play, Evening Prayers and bedtime stories but is also a relaxed welcoming space you can visit and pop in at anytime. The Prayer Yurt is situated on the grass behind Eagles and Broadbent. It contains seating, activity space and, best of all, a willing group of volunteers ready to pray with you, and for you, throughout the Festival. Come and join us, pray and create, reflect and seek God. All are welcome.
The Yurt is located behind the Broadbelt/Eagles building, and is no. 13 on the Festival map.
