Working for a couple of hours each morning except the last, the 12-14s team will look after a small group of 12-14 year olds in their morning meetings. Get to know your group, pick up on pastoral issues, be on hand to help with prayer ministry during their meetings/seminars ... and play silly games!
If you have experience of operating a till, why not join the busy team that runs the newday bookshop? From stocking shelves to taking sales, there’ll be plenty to keep you occupied. Full training will be given, so even if you don’t have the experience, you’re still welcome to sign up.
Join the team of volunteers in this amazing newday café and help keep the venue spick and span, serve customers and learn to serve the perfect cappuccino. You’ll have a great time, working at the hub of newday social life.
From the beginning of Setup to the end of Take Down, this team prepares and serves around 5,000 meals to the hungry workers serving newday. Food close to your heart? This team needs YOU!
(full or part-time)
We need both guys and girls to join this team which takes on the essential task of keeping our amenity blocks sparkling and well-stocked, plus some litter picking. You’ll work in small teams in shifts and you can choose whether to work full- or part-time. And, of course, you get to ride the famous newday buggy ...

These vibrant teams take care of and teach the younger children who come to newday. There’s a special programme for those aged 3-11 years every morning, split into three age groups (3-4s, 5-8s and 9-11s), primarily to release parents to serve in other areas of newday or to be on site for delegates from their church group. If you enjoy working with children, these teams can use your help.
Ministry Team (red caps)
Now a full-time role for 2014
This is an amazing way to help young people at newday meet with God and see their lives changed. Join the famous red caps and pray for young people during and after the main meetings and seminars. Like all our serving teams, you’ll be asked to attend a team briefing on arrival day, and this team meets to pray for half an hour before the evening meetings, when you’ll also be briefed on what’s planned for that meeting. Quote recruitment code ministry when you book online.
newdayAssist - Day, Night and Gate Teams
The newdayAssist teams are here to keep everyone on site safe and sound, whatever the hour. Whether it’s keeping a watchful eye on the concourse area during the day, patrolling the site at night or welcoming day visitors at the gate, there’s plenty to do. If you can handle a degree of responsibility, enjoy teamwork, have a sense of humour – and perhaps like staying up really, really late - the newdayAssist teams need you.
newdayAssist – Stewarding
(full- or part-time)
Play a vital role in the smooth running of the meetings at newday! This responsible role involves ensuring everyone on site is able to participate in all areas of the event without disturbing others and whilst maintaining delegate safety and compliance with site rules. You might find yourself welcoming delegates to the main meetings or perhaps being responsible for a seminar venue. If you like meeting people, can anticipate their needs and are good at problem-solving, you’ll love this team – and it’s a great way to work and still participate in the meetings and seminars.
Site Facilities & Maintenance
If you like variety, hard work and lots of laughs then this is the team for you! There’s a whole heap of things that need loading, recording, mending, sticking, taping, checking, unblocking, fencing and unloading. If you are practical, or able to use your initiative and improvise, then this team has your name on it. We need both ladies and gents for loads of different jobs, especially those who would like to use their DIY experience, and we’re always on the lookout for skilled plumbers and carpenters that can help us too. You’ll work in small teams in shifts, so there is bound to be a time that will suit you. (Steel toe-capped shoes would be a definite advantage but all other personal protective equipment will be provided.)
Sports & Social Activities
(full or part-time)
newday delegates work hard and play hard! Join the teams which run the active programmes for the week. Get involved with supervising sports sessions (including the skate park), organising tournaments and competitions, refereeing events and making sure everyone has a fun, safe time at newday, or help keep the newday Concourse looking great and working well. If you choose to serve part-time we’ll give you a 50% discount on fees.
Supplies & Resources
We need people who are well-organised and good at administration to help on this vital team. You’ll be making sure that our stores are well-stocked, ordering and purchasing supplies for other teams and delivering stuff around site. A clean driving licence would be a real advantage, as we may well need you to pick up supplies off-site. And if you could be there for Setup too, that would be great – it’s this team’s busiest time.
If you don’t mind where you serve – or just fancy a surprise – choose this option. We might need you to fill a team that’s low on numbers, or you could find yourself helping with something we haven’t even thought of yet.
