The Soul Survivor Story
Soul Survivor festivals ran from 1993 to 2019, gathering thousands of young people to worship Jesus each summer.
Over 32,500 attended the last Soul Survivor summer with five events in Peterborough, Stafford and Scotland including Naturally Supernatural, an event for all the family. An amazing 2,100 made commitments to follow Jesus and thousands more had life-changing encounters. You can find out more about how Soul Survivor began (and how it almost ended after one year because it was losing money!), the values it was built on and why we closed the events in the above video.
The story of Soul Survivor is a story of what God can do when you take a risk and follow him. We’ve never been the most talented bunch and we’ve never had lots of money or a huge staff team, but we have the most faithful God who loves to meet with his people and draw them to him. We’d love you to watch and read some of the testimonies of how God has met with people over the years and the impact he has had in their lives.
helping you to live out God’s call on your life
This website has a number of resources that we hope will help you in your relationship with God. Though our summer events have finished we will be looking to continue to resource the wider church in different ways so do stay in touch. You can purchase Bibles, books, DVDs, CDs and more from our shop until the end of October, and can stream seminars from the last few years of Soul Survivor and NSN summer events for free. Check out our Loud & Clear course below and our Bible in One Year which has videos for each day to unpack the day’s reading and apply it practically to our lives today. Follow the worship link to find videos, tutorials, chord charts and more.
