Contagious Bible Ministries is a Christian charity that provides youth residential conferences every summer throughout the UK.

Contagious is a fabulous week of friendship, fun and great Bible teaching for 14-19 year-olds (those currently in school years 9 – 13*).
19 year-olds (after first year uni) can choose to stay as a delegate in Contagious or join our TaskForce Team of trainee leaders.

Redeemed for a better story:
In Summer 2018 our subject will be Hooked and we will be digging into and exposing the lies of addictive behaviour and learning to enjoy the love of God and the redeeming work of the cross.


Contagious Nano is a brilliant week of age appropriate Bible teaching in a comfortable and homely environment where young people are cared for and fed well.  We have a terrific time with loads of activities, crazy fun and good friendship.
Nano is for young people aged 11-13 years (current school years 6-8*).

James, the punching preacher:
At Nano Summer 2018, we will be opening the Bible letter of James; a small book that packs a big punch!

All our conferences are fully catered in purpose built centres or boarding schools in comfortable dormitories.  Young people enjoy three cooked meals a day and are supervised by our experienced leadership team and all fun activities are included.  Last year’s price of £315 has been held for 2018!  We have a generous bursary fund available for those who need it.

*for Scotland it is S4-19 and P7-S3
