At New Wine we know that additional needs are wide-ranging and want to do what we can to make your time at New Wine as enjoyable as possible. 

We have several things in place to support those with additional needs and disabilities to enable them to join in with everything going on. If you or anyone on your booking would like any specific support from our additional needs teams or would like to let us know of any specific needs, please complete an additional needs form on booking. If you have any further questions, please do email our Head of Accessible Church Ministry, Jess Thompson on All our teams are volunteers and the support offered is dependent on having enough team to safely support everyone who has requested it.  

If this is your first time attending New Wine, here are some things it might be helpful for you to know: 

  • New Wine is mostly camping, although some do choose to stay off-site. This means that the weather can affect mobility getting around site.  
  • Everything is not as close as it may be at home, which means more walking than normal. Please bring any mobility aids with you to enable to you to get around site. We don’t have the facility to hire mobility scooters, but we do have space to charge them onsite. 
  • Remember that your time at New Wine will be different than at home. New Wine is noisy and busy, please consider how this may impact your physical and mental health whilst you are at New Wine.  



Our Place is the team that supports under 18’s with additional needs on site. The Our Place team have inclusion teams with all of the main Kids and Luminosity venues in the morning and evening sessions and are there to support individuals to feel safe and join in with what is going on. Our Place also has its own venues, Our Place Kids and Our Place Youth for those that may struggle to access the larger venues. These venues are quieter and provide their own tailored worship and Bible teaching.  



Access is the team that supports over 18’s with additional needs on site. The Access team have an inclusion team in Big Top and Impact during the morning and evening celebrations. The team have resources and some extra space to sit or lie down if you need it. Please speak to the Access team in the Big Top if you have an access need that you need support with.
