6000 teenagers head to Norfolk Christian campNewDay13BigTop540

Many may have seen the large tent being erected on the Royal Norfolk Showground this week, in preparation for Newday 2014. Ready to receive over 6,000 teenagers, leaders, youth workers and volunteers from across the country, the showground will host 6 days of fun, sport, worship, celebration, teaching and outreach.

“There are all sorts of reasons why people should go,” says Joel Virgo, Senior Pastor of Church of Christ the King in Brighton, and leader of the newday team, “it is a total riot! Everyone who comes enjoys it, it is a lot of fun and you are going to get to know new people and build really strong friendships” he continues.

Highlights of the coming week include, "waterfights, numb bums, life changing preaches, outreach, milkshakes, meeting with God, and friends old and new" according to Helen Hodgson from Gracechurch, Bromsgrove.
Newday will also be teaming up with Who Cares? the Norfolk based initiative that is asking a one question survey “What hurts you the most?” newday teams will be working with local churches across all denominations and posing that question across Norfolk during the event. 

Primarily for 12-19 year olds, newday takes place from Monday July 28th to Saturday August 2nd, it is open to all with full and half day tickets available on the gate. 

Newday is a Christian festival which started in 2004, it is run by Newfrontiers, a worldwide family of churches with over 700 churches in 60 nations.
