THE NATIONAL YOUTH MINISTRY WEEKEND
We want you to have space and time with your team and meet other youth workers. So we’ve negotiated special discounts with the local restaurants and coffee shops. Take some time to relax and enjoy yourself with all that Birmingham has to offer. Nearer the time we'll be producing a guide to where to eat and drink and some exclusive discounts available to NYMW delegates.
We want the NYMW to be as inclusive as possible. If there is support we can provide to make your weekend run more smoothly, or you would like to check we have the right facilities, contact Jenny, one of our event team, to talk to us. We have wheelchair accessible venues and a hearing loop system for the main sessions.
Parents bringing children are welcome. We’ll have an area for feeding and nappy changing, and a crèche with sound piped in from the main sessions. If you would like to join us for the conference but would need to bring along your young children, we’ll make sure there is a designated safe space with toys, where you can also hear the sessions. Just let us know if this is something you’ll need by emailing NYMW
Staying over for the weekend is easy. There’s a huge choice of hotels just a stone’s throw from the venue. If you’re looking for proximity, the Travelodge is the cheapest we’ve found (find a friend to share a room with to make it even cheaper), and then there are some pricier options at the Premier Inn, Jury’s Inn and Hampton Hilton. Book early for the best rates.
If you are struggling with the costs of accommodation in Birmingham, we have some friendly churches and families in Birmingham who have offered to host youth workers during the conference (most of them a tram or bus ride away from the conference venue). To find out more, email NYMW.
We’re minutes from the main train and coach stations in central Birmingham and there’s plenty of local parking. Very soon there'll be a travel guide available for download if you want to know more so watch this space. We’re less than two hours from London, Manchester and Bristol. If you’re flying in for the conference, Birmingham has its own airport, but it can be pricier than flying to London. We recommend flying to London Luton and we will charter some buses to drive up from Luton to Birmingham on Friday afternoon, and back again after the conference ends on Sunday. If you’re interested in booking onto the coach, just email us.
We’re in central Birmingham, the UK’s second city where its regeneration has transformed it into a vibrant mix of hotels, retail, restaurants, coffee shops and cool open spaces. With our main sessions at Gas Street church and the 900 seat Town Hall, you’re right next to all the action.
