2017 prices held for 2018 across all conferences.
We work very hard to make Contagious as affordable as we can while maintaining the distinctive qualities of our conferences.
As you can see three-quarters of our costs are ‘venue hire‘. We have searched the country for the best venues that provide clean and comfortable accommodation, quality catering and good teaching and sports facilities at the lowest prices.
You will see that the remainder of Contagious fee is mainly staff costs for our employed Contagious team. We run a very small admin team in Dunstable and employ one full-time worker to lead the team, visit churches and grow Contagious. We rely on many volunteers and those employed are already subsidised by donations from our supporting churches. Please note that all our conference leaders also pay the full fee to attend Contagious so young people do not contribute anything towards the leaders’ fees.
To help young people and leaders, we have a separate bursary fund that is used to help anyone who needs financial support to attend Contagious. Please download our Bursary Application form should you wish to apply for assistance – we would be delighted to help.
£50 Bursary Vouchers
This year, to make bursary application process easier, we have sent church pastors a number of £50 bursary vouchers. We have encouraged the Pastors to offer these vouchers to the families in their church that would most benefit from the gift and who would not be in a position to come to Contagious, without the financial help.
Those who receive a voucher and want to claim the £50 bursary funding towards their fees for next summer:
- Please book the event you wish to attend and then;
- Please email the voucher code to our admin team and we will apply the discount too your account.
If further assistance is required from the bursary fund, then please do complete a bursary application form (see above) and we will do our best to help.
Fund Raising Ideas
We encourage churches to find ways to fundraise their way to Contagious too. We have produced 20 Fund Raising Ideas for Youth Groups that give examples of fun ways to raise funds.
The David Chilcott Fund
Many people who attend Contagious each year have successfully made an application to the David Chilcott fund, who support young people to attend Christian camps.

Many Churches provide financial support to their leaders and young people to attend Contagious and Contagious Nano. If your church would like to support your young people and leaders it is a great way to help invest in their discipling.
