Crusaders' 100th Anniversary Celebration

Christian youth organisation Crusaders will celebrate their 100th birthday with a huge Centenary celebration on Saturday, 20th May 2006, at the Royal Albert Hall in Central London. The location is the same venue that Crusaders marked their 50th anniversary back in 1956.

The celebration, called ‘No Turning Back: The Main Event,’ will feature music from some of the UK’s top Christian bands and performers including Delirious?, yFriday, thebandwithnoname, Blush, The Psalm Drummers, Rob Lacey (Street Bible Theatre Company), Steve Legg, Tommy Baker, Tim Vine and John Archer.

According to Crusaders, the aim of ‘No Turning Back: The Main Event’ is to challenge young people to go for God’s very best, rather than having them settle for second rate Christianity, with one foot in the world and the other in God’s Kingdom.

Matt Summerfield, Executive Director of Crusaders, says “This event is aimed at the young and the ‘young at heart’ – get ready for a day that your children and young people will remember for the rest of their lives!”

Crusaders is a dynamic interdenominational youth and children’s missionary movement, established in 1906. Over the past 100 years, Crusaders has been reaching out to children and young people, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with them and challenging them to live out God’s great adventure for their lives. Every week many thousands have an opportunity to hear the awesome Christian message through our Crusader and Energize groups. Thousands more attend our wide range of residential camps, holidays and events.
