Big Day Out - The Staycation

The Big Day Out is back... and this time we're having a Staycation!

We would love to invite you to come to our Staycation as our two congregations combine for a day of worship, talks, games, great food, kids and youth groups, party in the evening and lots of time together as a church family.

We hope you can join us for the whole day on Saturday, but particularly for parents/carers of little ones, you may prefer to leave after eating dinner immediately after the final session. See the full programme below.

On Sunday we will be holding one mega service for both congregations at 3pm.  This will be the final session of the weekend and a perfect way to round off the Staycation all together! You do not need to have attended Saturday to come along on Sunday.

Pricing and bursaries
We are running early bird prices for three weeks from 21st April, so don’t miss out and book your place ASAP! The ticket price goes towards all food and drink during the day as well as afternoon and evening activities!*

We don't want finances to be a barrier to people joining us and are offering bursary places for anyone who needs them. If you would like you can pay in instalments. Please email [email protected] for either of these or if you if you have any questions.

*excluding the optional after party
What to bring
There will be parts of the day held outside so we recommend checking the weather and planning accordingly. Hopefully it'll be a case of bringing suncream rather than warm jackets!
