- Flood Riga is an outreach put on by Awakening Europe. It is held in the 4 days leading up to the stadium event and a time of raw outreach where the goal is breaking the fear of man, preaching the Gospel and inviting people to the large stadium event. It is a free event where groups come from all over Europe and the world (YWAM, Bethel, Circuit Riders etc). Each day we'll be having a specific location and times - watch our Facebook page or website for more information. It is normally held over a 4 hour period where anyone is welcome to come and go as they please and their schedule allows.
- Major outreaches during our main stadium event. See our schedule for more information.

Unfortunately we won't have a Kids Ministry this year but there is a Kids Area where they can play.
