The day starts with wake up followed by a filling breakfast. We then go into our morning meeting together. This meeting includes singing, activities and challenges, and teaching from one of the leaders.

After the morning meeting there will be a short break followed by some time in SUS (small) groups going through part of the Bible together.

After SUS we will have our lunch and then go into afternoon activities. The activities are a mix of all-together activities (such as water games, wide games and inflatables) and option activities (sports, craft, alternative).

After another cooked meal at dinner, there is another meeting similar to the morning meeting, followed by an evening activity (these have included junk heap challenges, wide games, quizzes and film nights) before bed.

We teach the Bible in several ways in order to help with a variety of learning styles.

SUS groups are your small groups for the week that meet each morning. This is the group of young people you will spend most time with and with who you will make new friends. You will have two or three adult leaders assigned to your SUS group who will care for you, give support and encouragement and teach you great truths from the Bible throughout your week at Contagious.

We will have two meetings, one in the morning before SUS, and one in the evening. The sessions are so full of great stuff including leader challenges, testimonies, stories, great songs, memory verse songs, team games, drama, and great talks.

We may work hard at understanding the Bible, but there is also plenty of time for breaks and activities. There are usually two activity slots in the afternoon, divided into an ‘all in’ activity and then some optional activities. Our activities divide into three types:

‘All in’ activities – great fun team events where everyone enjoys being together. These can include wide games, SUS challenges, inflatables, water games and colour wars.

Optional activities – where we can choose from a selection of options including sport, craft, music, chill or alternative choices. 

Evening activities – Evening activities are another opportunity to have a bit of fun before bed. They have included quizzes, wide games, film nights and ceilidhs!

You can also look at the reviews from parents and young people or browse through the photos from each Conference.

Please join the leaders in praying for our time at Contagious this summer:
