New Wine 2017

We’re off to the New Wine 2017 United Gatherings this summer. Have you got your ticket yet?

The New Wine United National Gatherings, are weeklong Christian festivals held in Somerset each summer. People from across the UK join together to enjoy passionate worship, access top-quality Bible teaching and ministry, and get spiritually recharged ready to go back to mission in their local communities. Exciting, age-appropriate activities are provided for children and youth, so the gatherings provide a great week away for the whole family.

Each of our congregations have a group of people going to one of the gatherings, so the week away also provides a great opportunity to enjoy community with people from your local church and to get to know others better. The majority of people attending New Wine camp onsite, with church groups camping together in mini villages, but you can also book a local B&B or cottage and just attend during the day, if camping doesn’t suit.

If you’re keen to get stuck in, volunteering with a team in an area such as hospitality, children’s work, stewarding, or ministry means you’ll get to meet lots of new people. You’ll also get your ticket and meals paid for!

If you're thinking about attending, make sure you book in soon to take advantage of slightly discounted rates. We'd love to see you there!
