Meet the team

Catholic Festival of Faith

One cannot encounter God and remain unchanged
however small the encounter.

Pope Benedict XVI said, “there is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him”. It is really exciting to have so many opportunities to share the joy of the Gospel in the West End of London through Spirit in the City. Those involved in the Festival have been touched by their own encounter with Christ and simply desire to speak of that friendship [that changes life] with others.

Leading the Festival is Allegra, the Evangelisation Co-ordinator for Notre Dame de France. She says, ‘what excites me about SitC is that we are taking the Church OUT onto the streets. What we love about our faith, we witness in the public square and pray that a little of that spark inspires others to say ‘yes’ to God. In organising the Festival, we look for opportunities to create space where grace can happen – space where God can speak and touch His people…’

Obviously, any Coordinator’s role would be impossible without the number of people who work behind the scene to help plan and develop the programme each year…



First, the Core Team, who bring expertise in various areas and whose passion for Christ shines through their generosity and creativity as the programme takes shape.

We also have a huge team of people who volunteer to help with both prep and on the
actual day(s). Their joy and inspiring faith have made an impression on the people who come away feeling refreshed, renewed and some… even on fire! 

As the Lord can never be outdone in generosity, it is often remarked that those 
who received the biggest blessings are those who came to serve!
So why not join the team for next summer and bless others with the gift of God in you!
