our annual festival

stronghold festival

come join us in the mountains
Each May we hold a festival for 16s-30s. This is a celebration of all the richness of our Catholic faith through praise and worship, teachings, fellowship and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. "God inhabits the praises of his people" (Psalm 22:3), and this festival aims to build a "Stronghold" of worship. You can learn more over at the website.

stronghold e-festival

come join us in the mountains - wherever you are
The year of 2020 was a year of immense challenge for everyone. We responded by embracing new technologies and moving many of our ministries online - starting with Stronghold Festival. We ran our first ever e-Festival in May 2020, with a small local team of volunteers and a larger team spread throughout the whole UK, working together remotely to bring Jesus into the homes and hearts of those in lockdown. This was a beautiful chance for people to come together online during a very difficult season, and has presented new opportunities for our Festivals and other events in future - we envision that every Stronghold Festival will now have a live online component, so you can join us from wherever you are in the world.
monthly events

stronghold prayer nights

come join us in the city
As part of Stronghold, we host regular prayer nights throughout Scotland - by young people, for young people. With our most popular nights in Glasgow, we now have events planned for Edinburgh and Aberdeen. These are like the festival in miniature, aiming to nurture friendships developed during and in the lead-up to festivals. They are times of worship before Jesus, of music, fomation and teaching, friendship, and fellowship. Prayer Nights last around three hours and then there's a trip to the pub after. Find out about when the next event is below, or by visiting

stronghold testimonies
I witnessed so many lives changed and miracles happen over the few days. God called me to go deeper in my faith and step out in ways that have changed my life!
God's presence can be felt in the room. I always feel peace and often clarity at Stronghold; it is where God reminds me life isn't meant to be done alone.
I had a huge experience with the Holy Spirit and encountered the saving touch of Jesus. This just showed me how much God wanted to meet me, yet He was not imposing or controlling.
