Contagious history

Contagious history

Contagious was set up in 2000 by Ian Fry, Trevor Pearce and Pete Woodcock.

Starting small, Contagious met at Quinta, North Shropshire, as a group of 14-19 year-olds enjoyed a fun-packed week studying God’s Word. Since then Contagious, under God, has moved sites and grown significantly.

Wonderful! Keep up your good work, faithfully teaching the Word of God and genuinely caring for the young people! We are so thankful for finding Contagious! Children came back home full of encouragement and inspiration! [Parent]

In 2010, Contagious Nano for 11 -13 year olds and Contagious West were established.

In August 2012, Jon Shulver was appointed Contagious Development Director and Contagious Scotland was held for the first time.

In the summer of 2014, Nano West was launched. Over 700 people attended our conferences in 2014.

In 2016, Nick Jackman took over as Contagious Director and in 2017, we added Contagious Central.

There are now almost 1,000 young people and leaders across the 4 conferences…

to God be the glory!
