Want to serve on team?
If you feel like giving back, and would like to get more involved behind the scenes, why not serve on Team? You'll receive your place, and all your meals, for free. We have an army of people that love helping to make the event happen. Serving as a volunteer on one of our teams is an amazing way to grow spiritually and to learn new skills. You'll also meet lots of new people and receive far more than you give.
How to apply
To apply for Team, you first need to book your place, then during the booking process you will be given the opportunity to indicate that you would like to serve on team. You will be registered as attending and will not be charged for your place. You then have 28 days to complete your application.
What happens next?
Team applications are considered at different times during the year and not on a first come basis. The first review date will be the 18 November. (Please note that for Gems and Pebbles, young team places for 13 and 14 year olds are very limited so these places will be capped at a certain number and the team will close when full, and no later than the 31 October). After this date, you will be informed as to whether your application has been successful, subject to references if these have not already been received. Please be aware that a place is not guaranteed, team places are limited and leaders need to carefully consider each application and ensure that each team has the right balance of experience and ability.
Some teams require you to undergo a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check (previously the Criminal Records Bureau). If this is a requirement for the team you have applied for, you will receive instructions from us by letter.

You will need to read our child protection policy, which is about safeguarding the welfare of children and young people at New Wine events, as well as protecting your safety. You'll need to sign to say you've read and will adhere to the terms on the Team Application Form.
All team members must arrive on site the day before your chosen week begins. All details will be provided by your team leaders, and if you cannot arrive early you must let them know as soon as possible, as this may affect your team application.
