Around the Festival site many different spiritual groups offer hospitality and sanctuary, and some provide welfare for those in need. You will not be expected to join in any acts of worship or other activities run by the tents, although you are welcome to join in if you wish. They are all present at the Festival to offer a service, and are open to everyone regardless of faith - or lack thereof.
Near the welfare at the farmhouse and the main medical centre, the Church offers hospitality and a welcome to anyone. They also offer free arts and craft and face painting. The tent is run by Christians of all flavours and services take place during the day, every day at 11am and 5pm. On Sunday there is a Roman Catholic Mass at 9:30am and Holy Communion for all at 11 noon. Simple sleeping arrangements at the tent are available for anyone in need, just drop in. Come and chill out.
The Krishnas offer food and some simple welfare. They are situated in Holts camping field, near Oxylers Bridge.
The Jewish tent is located in Holts camping field, near the Glade. It is a small tent which allows members of the faith to meet up on the Friday and celebrate together.
- Muslim Prayer
Jumu'ah (Juma) will be prayed on Friday June 25, 2011 at 1:30pm. Any muslims, or others who are interested in learning more about Islam, are welcome to join in reading Namaz. This is not an official arrangement and there are no facilities, therefore it will be everyone's responsibility to ensure their own wudhu and to bring a prayer mat. I intend to read Namaz in the Healing Field and will call Adhan at 1:15pm, but plan to be there well before. If you would like any further information or wish to make contact before going please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here you will find people of many different spiritual persuasions. The Buddhist Meditations centre, Hindu groups, Taoist groups, different pagan groups and the Coracle, run by the Quest Community of Glastonbury. They are on hand before, during and after the Festival, to offer a safe space, and to help in whatever way they can.
Based in the Fields of Avalon, the Iona Community has been a regular at the Festival for many years now. They are a dispersed Christian ecumenical community working for peace and social justice, rebuilding of community and the renewal of worship.
