The stage has been set. Thousands of tickets have been booked. Hundreds of volunteers have been mobilised.
We’re two days away from the opening night of Celebration of Hope, and the National Stadium, which will host five rallies this weekend, is bustling with action.
More than 200 churches and organisations are uniting for the biggest evangelistic event since the Billy Graham Crusade in 1978.
What are we expecting?
We’re expecting that the more than 200,000 visitors who are coming will personally encounter the Living Hope.
We’re expecting revival in our land.
“LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.” Habbakuk 3:2
Here’s a look at what’s happening on the ground.
The organising team has moved into the National Stadium and preparations are being made.
A quarter of a million visitors are anticipated to fill the stadium over three days.
What can you do? Besides inviting your family and friends, you can pray. Remember all those whose are helping and hard at work.

Pray for God’s mighty Spirit to move. Pray for spiritual breakthroughs.
Pray for a Great Awakening and a Great Homecoming. Pray for a momentous turning point in our nation.
We’re at the final lap. Come with expectant hearts.
The Celebration of Hope is a 3-day festival of hope, filled with songs and stories of hope, to be held in various languages for all age groups at the National Stadium.
Many of the rallies are fully booked, but tickets are still available for the May 18 (Saturday) and May 19 (Sunday) morning rallies. If you’ve reserved or confirmed your ticket but aren’t able to make it, please give up your ticket for someone else who can.
