Omagh and Fintona Methodist Circuit are delighted to once again to be hosting Gospel Fest Goes West.

The much-anticipated event is taking place this Saturday (February 24) at 7.30pm in the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh, and will feature performances from a number of well-known Gospel artists. 

Since the event was first held in 2015, supporters' generosity has helped a range of invaluable projects, including the Kamatunga School for Deaf Children in Kenya, the Container Ministry, the Surf Project within the Methodist Church, the Home Mission Department of the Methodist Church in Ireland, and the rebuilding work in Haiti following an earthquake, plus a number of other projects.

This year, the proceeds will be going to support the work of Phakamisa, Pinetown Methodist Church in South Africa.

On Saturday, talented local artists will again be accompanied by Jenn Bostic from Nashville - an inspirational soulful singer/songwriter based in Nashville, Tennessee.

This will be Jenn's first return to Omagh following her hugely successful performances at Gospel Fest Goes West in 2018, and again in 2020.

Also performing will be Live Issue, who need no introduction. Their music has been well appreciated since their first appearance on the circuit in December, 2010 with the late George Hamilton IV.

Live Issue comprises Colin Elliott, Roy Dreaning, Sam Armstrong, Carl Sands and Ivan McLernon.

Once again, Laura Beck from Co. Down joins Gospel Fest Goes West. In the past few years, her singing has been in great demand at many churches and concerts throughout Ireland and the United Kingdom.

She has also teamed up with the band, Live Issue, on many occasions and has taken part in memorable solo performances.
