What’s in-store for Churches
BRING YOUR CHURCH TO BIG CHURCH DAY OUT
Coming as a Church is simply the best way to experience Big Church Day Out. Year after year, Churches come together from all over the UK (and beyond) to spend a long weekend in a field, making memories, worshipping arm-in-arm and strengthening community. We’d like to invite you and yours to come join us.
SPACE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY TO COME TOGETHER
For generations churches have loved fellowshipping together once a year for the classic ‘church weekend away’. BCDO provides a brilliant alternative, creating space for your community to hang out, build friendships and deepen relationships. Why not hold your own talks and mini-meetings on the BCDO campsite each morning before all the festival fun begins? Many churches love BCDO for this because its an affordable alternative that removes both the financial risk for a church, and the challenge of needing to develop your own programme. Also, our incredible Group Plus feature means everyone in your group can purchase their own ticket (without you needing to go around and collect everyones money) and don’t forget that the more people you bring along, the cheaper each ticket becomes.

PERFECT FOR COMING TOGETHER AS A CHURCH, THE MORE PEOPLE YOU BRING THE CHEAPER EVERYONES TICKET BECOMES
"My sister and my friend had our first unforgettable volunteering experience at BCDO 2019. It is an amazing chance to serve great people, with a great team, for our Great God, and also enjoy the event at the same time! We will definitely be coming back for BCDO 2022!"
At BCDO 2015 Johannes from the Netherlands, met Melody from France. 4 years later they got married ❤️ "Big Church Day Out is a place where everyone is welcome and everyone is accepted as they are. As a couple we feel extremely blessed that this place was the starting point of our lives together. Randomly two groups of friends from different countries camped next to each other and started talking. 6 years on, the talking hasn’t stopped and we can’t wait to reunite with the rest of the group at Big Church Day Out in 2022."
"We made new friends and stayed in touch! We first met when myself and my housemate arrived on site. Beth offered to take us to the team area where we could set up our tent. We ended up putting our tent next to hers and the rest, as they say, is history! We have stayed friends since and have met up a few times over the past few years!"
"My dad came to BCDO in 2017 so me and my sister could use his camper van, but he wasn’t going to come into the event. Little did we know, he came in and listened to the music and came to his faith that year! We have been going to BCDO every year as as family ever since, and it’s always such a big highlight of our year! It is such an amazing feeling to be celebrating Jesus as a family and I will always be so thankful for BCDO."
