NEWDAY

03 AUG - 08 AUG 2020

Play Video

Newday is one of the largest Christian events for young people that takes place in the UK every year. Young people aged right through their teenage years and on into their early 20s join together from churches up and down the UK and Europe to learn about and worship God, camp out together and soak in the summer festival feeling, leaving Newday further along in their relationship with Jesus.

When?

Monday 3rd August to Saturday 8th August 2020 (returning on Sunday 9th)

Where?

Norfolk Showground, NR5 0TT (near Norwich)

Who is going?

Newday is very much an international event, with teenagers from across the globe coming together. We take around one hundred young people along with a great team of Youth Leaders, Elders & Caterers. As a Church, we also have a large number of people who come and serve at Newday from musicians to stewards, children’s workers to café staff; this really enhances Newday for us as we see so many familiar faces around the site.

Where do we stay?

Each church is allocated a pitch. We already have a number of tents and your Youth Leader will let you know if you need to provide your own. We camp in our sites, although this is flexible, and we camp 12-14’s together and 15-18’s together. You must provide your own mattress, sleeping bag and pillow(s) which you will bring with you on the coach.

Showers and Toilets

There are portable toilet and shower blocks, with a few permanent ones too. Bring your own toilet roll (it runs out quickly!) and remember your towel.

Food

We provide all meals and we eat together in our marquee. Just turn up on time, enjoy the food, eat and then wash up – simple! We provide the plates, bowls, cups and cutlery. You’ll be put into washing-up teams on a rota for lunch and dinner to wash up the catering equipment; this will be for a maximum of three times. If you have any special dietary requirements please put full details on the consent form.

What happens during the day?

In the morning you will attend your age group meetings (12-14s and 15-18s) - a mixture of worship, teaching and fun. These meetings are followed by a choice of seminars. After lunch, you can choose from a selection of activities – all free - including creative workshops (dance, drama, art, etc), skate parks, sports tournaments and optional afternoon seminars. You can also meet up in cafés. The evening meeting starts at 7.00pm and is followed by evening gigs. The Newday site curfew is at 11.00pm.

Can I bring money?

Yes, of course, you will need some money, however, be sensible and remember that we cannot guarantee its safekeeping. The same goes for all personal belongings. Only bring what you absolutely need and make sure that your home contents insurance covers you because we cannot be held responsible for any money or items that go missing.

Skateboards?

Please don’t bring skateboards, bikes, rollerblades, scooters etc as they are not allowed on site at Newday.

Wristbands

These will be issued at the start of Newday and must be worn at all times. Tell your Youth Leader if you lose it, as without one you will not be allowed in any of the venues.

Tents

If you are asked to provide a tent, please label it with your name and clear instructions for putting it up. A few days before Newday starts, you will need to drop it off at the Church Office, 21-23 Clarendon Villas, Hove BN3 3RE. All tents are put up the day before you arrive so that as soon as you get off the coach you can enjoy the Newday experience!

Emergency Details

We will let you know nearer the time how we can be contacted at Newday - this will be via your Site Youth Leader.

Attendance and behaviour

As Youth Leaders, we are very aware of our responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone on site at Newday. There are various rules and guidelines set by Newday that must be followed and they are included in the Behaviour Agreement.

Please read the Behaviour Agreement carefully. It needs to be signed by every young person and their parent/carer (regardless of youth delegate’s age). We will send home anyone who fails to keep his or her behaviour agreement at the expense of his or her parents/carers.
