Bring a youth group

If you’re a youth leader, we’d love you to consider bringing your youth group to join us as we launch Satellites this summer.

We believe it’s going to be a transformational five days, that will inspire your young people to put God at the centre of their lives for the other 360 days of the year – not just whilst they are with us at the event.

The first thing you’ll need to do is to get yourself booked onto the event, and your group set up on our booking system! Once that’s done, your young people (or their parents!) will be able to use your email address to get themselves a ticket that will be linked to your group. The earlier you and your group book on, the cheaper tickets are – so we’d recommend getting your group set up as soon as possible so that your young people can take advantage of the lower ticket prices.

There are some other things you’ll need to do to make sure you’re prepared for bringing a group – from thinking through getting people to and from the event, finding tents your group to sleep in and how you’ll feed everyone, to collecting consent forms and emergency information from parents (as you will be responsible for your young people during the event). You’ll also need to make sure you have enough leaders booked on who are over 18 to practically, emotionally and spiritually care for your group – we’d recommend at least one leader for every ten under 18s. Please make sure you’ve read and understood the Satellites safeguarding policy, as well as any safeguarding policies your church or group follow.

We’ve put together a guide for bringing a youth group to Satellites which we’d recommend leafing through to ensure you’ve not missed any essential steps. There’s loads of event information about tickets and programme on of our website, and we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions here. Plus, we’ve gathered some resources that you might find helpful, including social media assets for you to use and some handy template documents.

If we’ve missed something that would help you plan your Satellites group, please get in touch with us and we’d be happy to chat!
