Our concert at
The Salvation Army citadel at L'Islet on October 16th 2016 was a joyous and relaxed occasion.
As Major Jamie Hill wrote:
"Thank you so much to you and Festiva for
coming last evening to lead worship at The Salvation Army. It was a wonderful evening where God was truly glorified. We pray
for God's blessing on you all as you continue to seek to proclaim God's Word in music and song around the Island."
Our concert at the Town Church on September 19th 2016,

"Congratulations on a brilliant concert"

and from the National organiser, Jane Hanson:
" What a wonderful success we've had this year with around a million people
singing for peace with us this year...so huge thanks for your support and contribution".
