Each year, around 30,000 people choose to spend a week of their summer holidays at a New Wine Summer Conference. There’s room for you too!
Are you into prayer, social justice and ethics? How about worship, kids work or youth work? Theology and apologetics? Mission and evangelism? What about families and relationships? Perhaps culture, society, social media or workplace matters? Or you may be interested in growing your church or church planting?
Are you a parent, single parent, grandparent? Toddler, teenager or twenty-something? Single, married, separated? Super-spiritual or not quite sure?
Whatever your interests, whatever life stage you’re at, and whatever background you’re from, you can tailor your week with New Wine to suit you.
And this goes for the kids too! Our age-appropriate kids groups are led by a team of talented and experienced children’s workers, all passionate about giving children the best possible week. Your little ones will have loads of fun while you’re free to enjoy the adults’ programme. ‘It’s a huge part of our year. Our children insist on going, loving the chance to be with their friends, the incredible children’s work and the space to play in.’ [Rich, 36]
For people with special needs and their families, the Our Place venue is a haven where our dedicated team of volunteers will ensure that everyone can grow in faith and worship as full members of the church family. ‘“New Wine is the only holiday we feel we can go on as a family because of our son’s special needs”, said the parents of one of the children in Our Place last summer.’ [Fiona, 44]
It’s not all about singing and praying! As well as teaching from internationally acclaimed speakers, and worship led by some of the best worship teams, you can choose from music, comedy, pub quizzes, speed dating and open mic nights in our after-hours venues.
Or grab a top-quality Fairtrade coffee at one of the cafes. The Marketplace is our onsite shopping centre selling everything from books and MP3s to clothes and jewellery. And for younger ones, there’s a whole host of exciting activities from football tournaments, to the climbing wall, the skate park, live bands and more.
Not sure what you believe? Got some big questions? Then come to the ‘Just Looking’ venue – a safe place for those who want to explore questions of faith. Instead of following a ‘programme’, we respond to the issues that a particular group wants to explore. We also take care to explain the whole range of possible Christian views – even (or especially!) for the trickier questions. There’s no judgement, and guests can say exactly what they feel or think.
Our 2013 line-up of speakers and worship leaders includes Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Danielle Strickland (Salvation Army Officer, Canada), Jay Pathak (Senior Pastor, Mile High Vineyard, Colorado), Elaine Storkey (philosopher, sociologist and theologian), Jon Tyson (Lead Pastor, Trinity Grace Church, New York), Ken Costa (Chairman, Alpha International), Mary Pytches, (Cofounder, New Wine), Michael Nazir-Ali (Director, Oxford Centre for Training, Research, Advocacy and Dialogue), Robby Dawkins (Pastor, Vineyard Church of Aurora, Illinois), Mike Pilavachi (Associate Director, Soul Survivor), Christy Wimber (Senior Pastor, Yorba Linda Vineyard, California), Mark Marx (Pioneer of Healing on the Streets, Causeway Coast Vineyard, Northern Ireland), Brian Doerksen (Singer/Songwriter, Canada), Martin Smith (Former frontman of Delirious) and Rend Collective (Folk rock worship band, Northern Ireland).

New Wine Summer 2013
Central & South West
Sunday 4 August - Saturday 10 August, 2013
Royal Bath and West Showground, Somerset
At all three events, we camp people together in villages, each with a dedicated village host to welcome you on site and show you the ropes. A typical day starts and ends with a main celebration including worship, teaching and an opportunity for prayer. There’s a huge selection of seminars running throughout the day, as well as time and space in the programme to relax and catch up with friends – either over a bbq back in your village, in one of our many cafes, or while enjoying the after-hours entertainment. If camping’s not for you, then you’re welcome to join us each morning for a full day on site, then retreat to some luxury accommodation for a bubble bath and a comfy bed.
