New to Newday
We love welcoming new groups to Newday! In fact, we love having new groups so much that we currently offer new groups all of their delegate places to the event FREE OF CHARGE. Piqued your interest? Keep reading.
We also understand that it can be quite daunting to start thinking about coming to an event for the first time, so we like to try and make it as stress-free as possible.
Newday is for 12-18 year olds and designed to be attended as a youth group: groups will be allocated a camping site within one of our coloured zones and often bring a marquee to share as a group for cooking, eating and socialising. Groups will need to bring their own tents and equipment for sleeping/cooking/eating or arrange to hire from a suitable company. Newday can provide (for a small fee) lighting and charging facilities for mobile phones in your group marquee and power for a fridge and/or freezer in the Zone Host tent for your camping zone.
There's lots of useful information on the Festival pages of our website, so lots of what you need to know can be found here.
We have jam-packed programme, this is what you can expect a day at Newday to look like:
8.15-9.00am Morning bible study
9.00-9.30am Prayer meeting
9.45-11.15am Separate morning meetings for 12-14s and 15-18s

If you would like to bring a group for the first time, you'll need to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the following:
1. The name of your church group, so we can add it to the database.
2. The name of someone who will act as Group Coordinator (more info on what that means here). This person will be the main contact we use going forward.
We will then be able to send the Group Coordinator the following:
1. An invitation to create an account on our booking system, Solidrock
2. A welcome email, explaining some things all Group Coordinators really need to know
3. An email about the booking process, including your discount code as a new church
We have a member of our team dedicated to new churches, they will be in touch to introduce themselves, send info tips and hints and be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
