All fired up at ‘Flame 2019’

Students from Holy Trinity Academy were part of an 8000 strong crowd at Wembley Arena for Flame 2019, the largest event for Catholic young people in England and Wales. The theme for the day was ‘Significance’ and defined as ‘worthy of attention’, ‘with meaning’ and ‘important’. Organised by the Catholic Youth Ministry Federation (CYMFED), the young people were addressed by the Primate of All Ireland, Archbishop Eamon Martin and worship was led by artists including Tim Hughes and Guvna B, while the line-up also included Premier Gospel’s Ibe Giant-killer and Premier Praise presenter Candice McKenzie. There was drama by the Christian drama group RISE Theatre, and the American Christian and worldwide speaker Robert Madu urged the young people to keep their eyes well and truly fixed on Jesus who loves them and not to get caught in the trap of comparing themselves with others and not to let social media define their sense of self-worth.
