Below we have all the information you will need for your Contagious Conference this summer. If you would like general information for what a Contagious AGE Conference is like then please click on the link HERE.

Dates and Times

Contagious AGE VENUE runs from DATES. The Conference will begin with registration between TIMES. If you are going to be later than these please contact admin@contagious.org.uk in the weeks before the Conference or PHONE CONTACT on the day.

Our Conference will finish with a final meeting at TIME before pickups at TIME. We would love parents to join us at the final response meeting to get an overview of what we’ve learnt throughout the week and to hear from some of the young people. After the response meeting you are invited to join us for a picnic lunch. The young people will be provided with lunch by the venue, but please bring a picnic lunch for yourselves.

If you are going to be delayed for any reason to pick up your child then please contact us using the phone number above.

Contagious AGE VENUE is at ADDRESS. When you arrive we will have TEAM and CREW on hand to direct you to registration. Due to package travel regulations we are unable to provide transport from train stations to the venue.

If you have particular concerns about social media, photographs or publicity, please inform us by emailing admin@contagious.org.uk.

Our Mobile Phone Policy

At Contagious GO we are happy for children and young people to bring their phones to Contagious though we cannot take responsibility for their loss or damage.  We require that all electronic devices are handed to their SUS leader at HANDOVER TIME. We will keep the phones safe and give them out for an hour each day (this will be at TIME) for young people to contact parents/carers and friends. We understand that you may wish to speak to your child so in an emergency you can contact EMERGENCY CONTACT NUMBER.

Medical, SEN and Pastoral Information

You should have given us all relevant medical, SEN and pastoral information when you signed up on Brushfire. If you have any further information to give us or need to update anything then you can do that by accessing your booking on Brushfire. If you wish to update anything less than six weeks before the conference please email admin@contagious.org.uk. This is because we often pull the relevant information for each Conference from the booking website around six weeks before the conference, and by emailing us we can make sure that the necessary people are notified.

Expectations

When you booked onto Contagious, we asked you to agree to our terms and conditions. You can access them here. In particular, please note our expectations with regards to behaviour throughout the week.

FAQs

What does a typical day look like?

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 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.

What is being taught at Contagious this year?

MAX

We live in a world of fake news and false ideas. Many people are uncertain of who they are, why they exist and how to make sense of life. Where can we turn to find truth and stability? Where can we find a solid foundation to build on? We can only find it in God’s word, entrusted to God’s church. In 1 Timothy a church which lives and loves the Bible is described as a pillar and foundation of the truth. Come and join us this summer as we open up 1 Timothy and take our stand on the truth!

How are young people kept safe at Contagious?

We are serious about keeping all children and young people safe at Contagious. If you would like to read our safeguarding policy then you can access that here.

How can I be praying for Contagious? 

We would love it if you could be praying for us throughout the week! It is only through God’s word applied to the hearts of the young people through the Holy Spirit’s work that lives are changed. Please be praying for faithful teaching and for hearts opened to the good news of the gospel. For particular points for prayer check out our dedicated page.
