We're so looking forward to what God is going to do amongst us as we gather together for Devoted! Our programme has lots of elements that you can engage with - or you can simply spend time on site enjoying the company of great friends (hopefully, making some new ones on the way!) In order that you can plan ahead and think about the things you might want to do on site, our daily programme runs as follows:
PLEASE NOTE that the first session of Devoted will be on Friday 24th August at 10:00. You can arrive on site from Thursday, 23rd August, from 14:00.
All age family worship (10:00)
We are really keen to give families opportunities to worship together, enjoying God together and learning together. So, we are inviting you all, old or young, to join our morning worship sessions. There'll be plenty of space around the main auditorium for you to sit (or stand) as families, with space to express yourselves in as many ways as there are people!
During the break, parents will be able to take their children and register them in the appropriate age group, before going to their chosen LifeZone. Coffee shops will be open around this time, so there may also be time to chill out for a few minutes.
Amplify will be running from around 11:15 onwards, and will run for around 75 minutes. Those aged between 12- 18 can go to Amplify and enjoy what it has to offer, but those over 16 will be able to go to one of the LifeZones if they prefer.
Going Bananas (11:15)
Also running from 11:15 onwards will be the 8-11s and 5-7s GOING BANANAS meetings. They will be fun packed, energetic, God filled times for our Children to enjoy, learn from and grow in God.
We love our times of family worship, it's a real highlight of the weekend. It's wonderful being able to celebrate together as families, all that God has done for us!
Afternoons are going to be all about fun! Festival Fun. See our Festival page for more details of the various activities that will be taking place – as the event draws nearer this page will include details of the various activities going on throughout the weekend so keep an eye out for updates!
Browse the Art Gallery, play sports, chat with friends over a coffee, listen to great teaching at a seminar or simply pop your feet up. Our afternoons have something for everyone!
Evening Celebration (19:00)
The main evening celebrations will start at 19:00 each day. Speakers including Jeremy Simpkins and Andrew Wilson (see more) There will be great times of worship and hearing from God, as well as catching up with the ChristCentral vision and values.
Amplify will have their own evening celebration but those over 16 may choose to attend the main evening celebration if they wish.
Going Bananas (19:00)
Going Bananas 8-11 will be open from 19:00, building on the fun from the morning.
Again, please look at our Festival page to see what is going on each day, but there will be concerts, author events, poetry events and open mics. Find out more here.
Great times of worship, teaching and ministry are what our evening sessions are all about!
Our Monday mornings work slightly differently! We start off with family worship as usual but there are no LifeZones - instead we will have our final main address.
During the morning celebration there will be a chance for our Children & U19s age groups to share what they have been learning & all the fun they've been getting up to. They will then return to their groups until the end of our final session together.
It's great to hear all that God has been doing in our children & U19s age groups during the weekend!
