Kids and Youth Teams

United 17

Where else can you spend a week with some of the most enthusiastic people you'll ever meet?

At New Wine, we're passionate about seeing children and young people meet with God - and at our National Gatherings, there's no exception. We have groups for children of all ages - from the very smallest to those finishing high school. Serving on team in one of the youth or children's venues is a rewarding, energising and incredibly fun way of giving back - and you'll see God do some amazing things along the way.

Where do you want to serve?

In all kids teams you'll befriend, lead and encourage the children, get alongside them in small groups, pray with and for them, minister to them in the power of the Holy Spirit and encourage them to pray for each other. You'll serve as a small group leader, either on your own or paired up with another team member who you may be asked to supervise. Some teams also need activity leaders who organise, prepare and supervise drama, games or craft, and assist with the practical needs of the team while not being directly responsible for a group of children. Your day will start with a time of team prayer and preparation. Some teams have informal activities in the afternoon (e.g., games, sports or water fights) and some teams have a meeting for prayer and preparation in the afternoon. The time is rewarding, and needs energy and commitment. You will need to be a Christian with an active, living faith, a heart for children, and regular attendance at a church/fellowship.

Remember there are opportunities to work with children who have additional needs in these venues as a part of the Our Place team. You would attend all team training and wear the t-shirt of the venue you're in, but would be there to support children and young people with additional needs to access what is going on. In order to do this you need to apply to the Our Place team and tell us your preferred venue (we can't guarantee you'll get your preferred venue but we'll do our best).  Click Here to access the Our Place team information
