An annual church music festival will take place next weekend.

The Big Church Festival is a two-day event with music performances, festival food and drink, and children’s activities such as fairground rides.

This festival is a Christian event and aims to connect different small church communities.

The festival will take place at Wiston House, in Steyning, and everyone can attend, including people who are not religious. 30,000 people are expected.

Tim Jupp, founder and team leader of the Big Church Festival, said: “What makes the Big Church Festival what it is, is the thousands of people that attend. Many have a faith, and many don’t.

“I guess what makes the festival different is that the majority, but not all the artists, are people of faith, and it's reflected in their songs.”

This festival will be from May 25 to May 26, and tickets will range from £5 for those under five and £360 for family packages.
