Worship is at the heart of New Wine. Each year we invite a range of different worship leaders and bands with the aim of inspiring worship that is passionate, intimate, culturally appropriate and facilitates encounter with God.
A Day to Rest
On Tuesday for the London and South East and North and East conferences, and Wednesday for the Central and South West conference, there is a reduced programme to give you time to rest, relax, catch up with friends or explore the surrounding area.
There is usually a family celebration or Communion service in the morning, but no seminars throughout the day, and no children's groups until the evening. Many delegates choose to leave the site; others organise social events and activities within their camping village.
Our aim: to see young people dedicated to Jesus and rooted in his love - giving them a firm foundation for the rest of their lives.
We have dedicated activity and sessions for 12-18s throughout our summer conferences.
New Wine Youth is led by some of the best Christian youth workers in the UK. Not only is there excellent worship, teaching and ministry, but there are parent-free cafes, afternoon sports and fantastic evening gigs.
Club One (12-13s) and Thirst (14-18s) both host their own morning and evening celebrations as well as a range of afternoon seminars and workshops.
Flava cafe: a fun venue and a great place to meet your mates, or make new ones.
Sport: football competitions, inflatables, basketball - there'll be something for everyone.
The Vibe (at Shepton Mallet): equipped with a dance floor and an action-packed programme of video games, challenges and competitions.
Plenty of fun and great Christ-inspired activities to cater for kids and their families.
You'll be offered top-quality, tailored kids care across all of our summer conferences.
A session a day is on offer, at either 9-10.30am or 11am-12.30pm.
Children will be allocated to the session of their choice (space permitting) and will keep to the same time each day.
Select your session during registration onsite.

You will be sent a children's registration form for each child between 0 and 13 years, which you will need to complete and bring with you to register your children on arrival day.
The gospel is for everyone.
At New Wine, we believe everyone should be entitled to find a place where they can grow in faith and worship as full members of the Church family.
For extra-special people
Worship, teaching, games and craft activities designed especially for people with special needs, will be held at Our Place, in the morning and during evenings.
In the afternoons, Our Place will be open to families of those who have special needs, so drop in and spend some time together.
Children and teenagers will have the opportunity to attend their own age group venues for the first part of the morning, where they can receive the support they need to participate in activities. Young people can attend the programmes in the main venues.
At the LSE and CSW conferences in Shepton Mallet, there will also be informal seminars for parents, carers and friends in the mornings. Feel free to come and meet with others, chat over a cup of coffee, or just relax in a safe place.
Visit Our Place and experience being together as a worshipping community of differing abilities.
If you or anyone on your booking has special needs requirements, please download this form and return it to the New Wine office.

We offer giant print seminar programmes, large print maps and Braille seminar programmes.
Interpretation for deaf people
At all New Wine summer conferences, the BSL interpretation team led by Signs of God interpret for deaf delegates at the main venues during the main morning and evening sessions, as well as for a selection of daytime seminars.
There will also be a deaf seminar stream running during the Central and South West week in Shepton Mallet.
'I was astounded at how fantastic it was. The speaker adapted his sermon very well by using drama to illustrate exactly what he was preaching. This has even more impact on me as deaf person, to see and understand from very expressive signs and gestures.'
'Even now, many weeks later, I recall exactly what was signed. This to me is what preaching should be all about: for the congregation to go home and recall easily what we learnt and to act on it.'
'It was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. God spoke to me so clearly that week and opened my eyes even more to what I am alive for, having been blind for so long. We need more of this.'

The talk came to an end and Alan then asked the V2 host if he could have a few more minutes and asked some one for a £20 note. To the surprise of the gathering he then asked if anyone needed £20. The feeling in the room was one of intrigue as someone came to the front to take the money. Another person came and gave more money, and again Alan asked who needed it. This continued until there seemed to be lots of people going back and forth to the stage giving and receiving money, I have never seen anything like it in my life. It was like a cross between the feeding of the 5,000 and a Saturday night game show! I watched on amazed as people ran to the stage and skipped away with money that the Lord was providing for them.
Alan continued to give away and receive £20 notes and the pile was growing in his hands when he stopped and said that he felt there was someone in need of money for a mortgage. I felt a quickening in my heart and wondered if it could be me. I remember speaking this out loud very quietly and the man sitting next to me who had prayed for me before said, "It’s you! Go and get it."
As I looked around I saw many people from my home church and for a few seconds struggled with worrying about what they would think of me but I knew deep in my heart that the Lord had heard and was answering my prayer so I made my way to the front. I had no idea how much money there was but I knew what we needed. When I reached the front Alan handed me the money and said, "God wants to bless you with this".
The man next to me asked me how much I needed and would he like me to count it so I replied about £1000 and he took the money from me and began to count. There was £1,115 in all!
Our nine year old son was ill from Tuesday with a high fever, headache and swollen glands. My husband fought through the crazy rain on Thursday morning to take him to the doctor, who checked him over, decided it was viral, and prayed for him. Within one hour he was out on his bike and feeling completely better – he didn't miss any more meetings. Praise God for the doctor!

I had a wonderful week meeting with God at the 2011 Summer Conference, but I was also struggling with the pain of not conceiving, which was causing me sadness and disappointment. I knew that God had the best in store for me, and I felt him saying to me to be patient, but still, at the age of 39, I was finding it very hard. On the last night my friend and I stayed longer than we planned at the end of the main meeting, just enjoying being in the presence of God. She heard a call out for couples struggling with infertility and gave me a shove. I ran to the front and was first in the queue to be prayed for. My prayers for a baby for my husband and I were not answered immediately - but God gave me an encouraging word in the autumn, challenging me to be courageous in my workplace, and to keep being patient. The great news is that I was not at New Wine this year as I am pregnant!

Evening worship was wonderful, with a great focus on Jesus. Singing ‘Jesus the name high over all’ had me standing with tears flowing. After the talk, as the Holy Spirit was invited again, a song in tongues bubbled up within, and kept repeating it. When those aware of the Holy Spirit were invited to come for prayer ministry, I went forward. The guy prayed alongside me for a good length of time. He asked the Holy Spirit to let me know what I was singing. Words then came, of praise and encouragement to speak out the truth. I returned to my seat and carried on in prayer and worship, sensing Jesus very close. Specific encouragement came to work on a book I am writing with main points and a title, similar to what I have been thinking but with differences. I returned home much refreshed and energised. Thank you very much indeed!

I have lived in a horribly painful marriage for 24 years. We have four teenage children, and worked as missionaries for seven years. My husband has always been committed to his frontline Christian work and my needs have got in his way. I came to New Wine for the first time last week with two of our children. My husband said he did not want to come. One week before New Wine started we discussed how dead the marriage is. We have been to marriage counselling twice, and I had tried everything I could do. It was all so incredibly painful that we were discussing whether to divorce or separate. I had been turning to a friendship with male friend: only talking, but we were getting closer to more. I had been drinking wine too often just to make it through the day.
I came to New Wine with a friend and told her what was happening. She arranged, later in the day, to pray with me. As we prayed she focused on John 4:46; Jesus healing at a distance and turning water into wine. We prayed through the passage with faith that God will do something to break the chains in my marriage. Later that day, as I got into my seat during the evening celebration, I totally fell apart. The pain and sobbing came from very deep within me. It was not the normal tears I cry; this was different. I went forward for prayer not knowing why. A lovely Dutch lady asked me what I wanted prayer for and the words came out of my mouth, "I need to forgive my husband". We spoke the words of forgiveness in the name of Jesus and I was filled with amazing love from the Holy Spirit.
Afterwards I rang my husband and told him that I forgive him. He immediately softened and said he needed to hear that. The next day my husband told me on the phone how dreadful he felt about our marriage and how bad a husband he had been. He thanked me for forgiving him and said it was what was needed to draw a line in the sand. I came home last night to a new husband. We have a new marriage. It’s miraculous.

Two weeks before New Wine, my son Jack (7), was told that he would need to wear a hearing aid and we had an appointment to have one measured the week we returned. This was due to glue ear and congestion which he had had since a baby and was showing no signs of going away. The hearing aids were to help him deal with the hearing loss while we waited to see what had happened.
While we were at New Wine, I heard amazing stories of how God has worked healing miracles in people’s lives – I asked him to show me his power and to heal Jack’s hearing. During the week I prayed for this and the team in Groundbreakers also prayed for Jack. When we returned I attended the appointment to have Jack’s hearing aid measured. At the appointment they conducted another hearing test and the report from the audiologist was that his hearing had improved significantly from the last test ‘even though it was only conducted three-four weeks ago’ and that ‘Jack’s hearing was currently too good to warrant the use of hearing aids’. The last time Jack’s hearing was this good was when he had grommets fitted two years ago.
God has surely answered my prayers and I feel truly blessed by his amazing power.

At New Wine in 2009 I attended a prophecy seminar. We had some practical time at the end where, in groups of three, we shared prophecies for each other. At this I was given a picture of rings; I had been with my partner since the January but hadn't shared this with those in my group, so I was quite surprised. My partner Henry and I married in September 2011, two years after this prophesy was spoken over me.
