Accommodation

As part of the Team package, we’re providing free camping on-site in an exclusive Team camping area. You’ll still need to bring your own tent, sleeping bag and any other items you may want for camping. If you don't have camping gear, you can order a Rent-A-Tent or Glamping at an additional cost. All the prices can be found on our prices page. You can also bring campervans or caravans onto the Team camping area. 

Please note that family will no longer be able to camp in the Team campsite. The Team campsite is for TEAM ONLY. Your family will need their own tickets which can be purchased through our website. Family will not have access to the Team Hub.

If camping in the great outdoors isn't your thing, we have an alternative for all Team members serving at our South event. For just £10, you can camp indoors at the Dalesdown Christian Conference Centre; this covers Friday, Saturday and Sunday night and includes a light breakfast each morning. You will be staying on the floor of one of the centre's halls. These will be split into male and female halls with access to showers and toilets. You will need to bring your own airbed, bedding and towels. Dalesdown is a 15-minute drive from Wiston House and there is no public transport, so you must have your own transport to stay here.

Dalesdown FAQs

When can I access the centre? The centre will be open from 4pm onwards on Friday, closing at 9am on Saturday.  The centre will re-open at 10pm on Saturday and close at 9am on Sunday.  On Monday, all guests will need to vacate the centre by 10am. There will be no access to the centre outside of these times and you will need to take anything you need for the day back to Wiston.

IMPORTANT: For anyone who will be working on Friday, you will need to find alternative accommodation for the Thursday evening.

I have dietary requirements, can you cater for me? We will be providing a light breakfast of cereal, toast, porridge, tea and coffee.  We are unable to cater for dietary requirements but you are welcome to bring your own food.

Can my family stay with me? Unfortunately, due to the fact that all spaces are communal, we are unable to accommodate family, friends and children. Couples with both partners serving on the Big Church Team are welcome to stay, but will be split across male and female dorms.

Are there showers and toilets? Yes, there are showers and toilets and use of them is included in the price of your ticket. You will need to bring your own toiletries and towels as these are not provided.
