TOGETHER WITH

MERCY SHIPS

One of the absolute highlights at Big Church Festival is our amazing Expo. This year, we’re super excited to team up with the fantastic Mercy Ships whose hospital ships perform free, life-changing surgeries for women, men, and children across sub-Saharan Africa.
Did you know that safe surgery is a distant dream for 9 out of 10 people in sub-Saharan Africa? It’s just not right. Mercy Ships believes that everyone deserves access to safe surgical care when they need it. And here’s the best part – their hospital ships run on love and support. So, get ready to be a part of something incredible at the Expo – because together, we can make a real difference!
