During 2017, evangelicals of all backgrounds and traditions affirmed their commitment to unity for mission at events, festivals and conferences.

With more than 100,000 Christians involved, 17.21 is an exciting initiative that spread unity between different churches and Christian groups across the UK.

17.21 brought together leading Christian festivals and conferences that happened in 2017.

Each participating event read the same bible reading, prayer of commitment, a declaration of a shared life in Christ and play the same worship song. There was also an artistic symbol of unity transported to each event.

17.21 is based on the Bible verse John 17:21 May they all be one that the world might believe’. 

With such a variety and range of well-known Christian festivals and conferences taking part in this significant show of unity, this offers a stunning visual representation of the bible verse in action.

With 2017 marking the 500th anniversary of the reformation, 17.21 offered Christians a chance to celebrate what unites us in Jesus and the calling to share the transforming power of the gospel.
