Will I be able to go off-site on arrival day?

Yes you can get off-site on that day though probably not until after 4pm as the entrance to the site will be in constant use processing arrivals.

Will there be food halls or vans at Inspire?

We will be looking to arrange for external companies to provide food at Inspire, but please note this is not confirmed. For the time being, please arrange to bring enough food and drinks for your time at Inspire or see the Local Information page for nearby shops.

Are there freezer packs or re-freeze facilities at Inspire?

Unfortuantely we do not have the facilities to provide freezer packs and cannot re-freeze cool blocks etc.

What is a Village Host and how do I contact them if I have a special request?

A Village Host is someone who looks after the village you are camping on and who plans the layout of where tents, caravans and church groups will camp. They are the first point of call for any issues or queries regarding your village. You will be able to contact your Village Host once villages have gone live on the website. This will be sometime in July 2018. Please contact info@new-wine.org giving your permission for us to pass on your contact details.

Is there electricity which can be supplied to campers?

Electric hook-ups are very limited and we are only able to supply them to people with specific medical needs, ie, those who use breathing machines at night. If you have a specific medical need and require an electric hook-up, please email info@new-wine.org with as much information as possible so that we can review your request. We'll let you know whether we're able to provide this as soon as possible.

Please note that those requiring electrical hook-ups for medical reasons will not be able to camp with your church family. We are really sorry about this but there is only one camping area where there are hook-ups available. Upon arrival at Hollybush, please make the stewards aware that you have been authorised for an electric hook-up for medical reasons, and they will direct you to the correct camping village. Please do not connect your electrics. This needs to be done by the authorised New Wine electrician. Thank you for your understanding!

Can I camp with another church if mine is not coming?

Yes of course! You are more than welcome to camp with whoever you like and you don't have to belong to that church to camp with them. 

I am coming on my own - will I be camped anywhere?

The social village is specifically designed for delegates who are coming with five or less people and who don’t know anyone else attending the event. It’s a great way to make new friends and to share the experience with others who are also coming on their own.

Can I find out who has booked from my church?

Due to new data protection laws, we cannot give out this information.

How will I get my ticket(s)?

Tickets, in the form of a badge, will be posted out to the booking manager approximately 1 month before the event. Please remember to bring them with you as there is a charge for lost or forgotton badges.

The Advance Information will be emailed to all booking managers at the same time so please check that the email address on your account is up-to-date! This will include all the information about the event which we think you need to know... in advance!, and this will also be available to download on the website nearer the time. 

Identification on Site

Please remember to wear your badge at all times on site, and take it with you if you leave site! Your badge should be placed in a small plastic wallet that you can pick up from Customer Services and Site Services when you arrive at Inspire. Please be aware that you may not be permitted to enter some venues without your badge.

Does New Wine hire out accommodation?

New Wine does not hire out accommodation but recommed that you contact the Thirsk & Northallerton Tourist Information Centres as they have a large number of contacts for caravan and tent hire companies as well as information on B&B's, hotels, and self-catering accommodation.

If I hire a caravan, how will the caravan company know where to go before I arrive?

Once you know your village allocation (in July), please contact your hire company so they will know where to leave the caravan.

Can I bring a pet with me to Inspire?

Delegates with assistance dogs and guide dogs may bring them on site and are very welcome. Please make sure that when they are around the site, they are wearing the appropriate harness to indicate they are working dogs. Please note that no other pets or animals may be brought on site.

Are there toilets and shower facilities available to campers?

We are providing additional showers and toilet facilities alongside those already available on the Hollybush site.

Are BBQ's allowed on site?

As with all open fire when camping, safety comes first. Open fires, fire pits, chimeneas or Chinese lanterns are not allowed on site under any circumstances. BBQs are allowed but should only be used outside - please be aware that this applies to tepees as well as standard tents. More information will follow via the Advance Information nearer the time.

Can I apply for team?

We have an army of people that love to make this 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 get back even more than you give out. For more information please see the website:

Church Leaders

At Inspire 2018, we are particularly keen to connect with church leaders; as we seek to work together to change the nation, it helps to know who each other are! We believe that there is an invaluable opportunity at this gathering for us to get together to encourage, challenge, stimulate and equip for ministry.

Venue hosts and members of the Leaderhip Network Team are available to try to help you get in touch. Whether you are part of the Network or not, we would love to talk to you to find out about the work you are doing in your church and community.
