UK Youth Movement Midnight Oil Embark On Debut Live Recording

From 18th-20th July 2013 one of the UK’s premiere youth gatherings, M.O.S (Midnight Oil Summit) will record their debut live album on 20th featuring some of the UK’s prominent artists covering a plethora of genres.

Throughout the course of the gathering M.O.S will be host to such artists as Philippa Hanna, Jahaziel, Noel Robinson, Lara Martin, Ben Cantelon, Joseph Perry, Monique Thomas, Lekè, Mark Beswick and Faith Child.

Up to 3000 young people across racial, cultural and denominational divides are expected to converge on Birmingham for the three day event, which will take place in three famous landmarks in the city: Birmingham Conservatoire, the world famous Symphony Hall and Centenary Square.

“Midnight Oil Summit aims to show young people that Christianity is exciting and relevant and has something to say about all areas of their lives,” says M.O.S founder Seth Pinnock.

He continued, “I believe that young people will turn out in their droves to attend MOS because they know they won’t leave the same as when they arrived. They’ll be stretched, encouraged and equipped to meet the challenges of life and to make a difference and also get the opportunity to meet fellow believers from different Christian traditions and countries. I’m also looking forward to recording the debut M.O.S Gospel album.  It’s going to be great.”

Other activities taking place during the three day M.O.S conference include:

  • The M.O Street Party in Centenary Square featuring dance performances, choir performances and a picnic
  • Futurebuilders – a reception for up-and-coming as well as established young leaders
  • Gender specific conferences dealing with a range of issues including sex, relationships,
  • The launch of the Alpha Orchestra (conducted by Peter Daley), comprised of musicians across the cultural and denominational divides

Seth shares, “We have brought together some of the UK’s leading Christian speakers, teachers and artists to inspire, empower and motivate the young people and adults that will be attending M.O.S to be the best they can be, live the best lives they can and be agents of positive change and social transformation in their communities.”

Seth was inspired to start Midnight Oil Summit when he was a 16 year old college student.  He wanted to put on an event where young people could enhance and develop their Christian faith.  He held his first ever MOS in 2007 when he was aged 17 and still a student at college.  Seth stacked shelves in Asda and carried out a range of fundraising activities to raise money to finance his first ever M.O.S conference, which was held at Bethel Convention Centre, in West Bromwich and attracted 500 people.  It now attracts thousands.

Tickets for Midnight Oil Summit are £20. 

Group bookings are also available.
