When Steve met Justyn Rees from Upstream Christian Initiatives, they had just completed an inspirational five year coast to coast evangelistic tour of Canada from Vancouver to Newfoundland with the Bandwagon. This unique portable church was a kind of hybrid of a circus tent and a biblical tabernacle with tiered seating for 300 people. The four heavy goods trucks that made up the Bandwagon were recovered from a scrap yard in Vancouver.
When Upstream completed their adventure the Bandwagon was parked up on the Atlantic coast and the team flew three thousand miles back home to the Pacific coast. Following a series of miraculous connections we shipped the Bandwagon trailers across the Atlantic from Canada and then moved them to Southampton to be refurbished. Miracle Street began to use the Bandwagon a year later to reach communities with the love of God in towns across the UK.
In 2005 the Bandwagon changed hands once again and for several years it was the centrepiece to the massive Lark in the Park festival in Sidcup and Ramsgate, a joint churches project that Steve was involved in the formation of and visited for over 10 years. The Bandwagon has now been scrapped for a second time but the stories of transformed lives both sides of the Atlantic are eternal.
