If you’re not familiar with us, the Big Church Day Out (BCDO) is the UK’s largest annual gathering of the wider church that creates a space for all denominations and ages to gather each year for 2 exciting days of worship and celebration . BCDO is held on two sites- Wiston House in West Sussex and Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire. In 2018 BCDO South celebrates its 10th event, plus we will be returning to Cheshire for BCDO North’s second year. The Big Church Day Out has grown year after year, and in 2018 we will be expecting around 40,000 to gather between the North and South events.
Whatever your age, denomination or musical taste, everyone is welcome to the join us at the Big Church Day Out for an amazing time away with your friends and family, creating memories together that you will never forget.
We recognise that being a Christian and following Jesus isn’t something that we do on our own. Throughout the rest of the year we run many events throughout the UK with some of the top Christian artists and bands such as Hillsong, Worship Central, Matt Redman, Switchfoot, Rend Collective, Housefires and many more!
