Big Church Day Out is an annual event held in the grounds of Wiston House in West Sussex, and this year it is on the 25th-26th May. Having been each year for several years, it is something to which my family an I look forward.
There is plenty of good music in several different locations. Even if an artist on the main stage is not to you taste you will no doubt find something you like in one of he other venues. Depending on how energetic you feel you can choose either to sit in a camping chair towards the back or if you prefer stand close to the stage and jump up and down with everyone else.
One way or another you will get caught up in the worship almost without realising it.
We go for the weekend camping from Friday evening until Monday morning, but it is also possible buy a day ticket for either the Saturday or the Sunday.
If you've been before you will know what to expect, but if not I suggest watching this video showing highlights from last year. and of course take a look at the website.
The cheapest way to buy tickets is by having a group, and as long as there are at least 10 people in the group the tickets will be cheaper than they would otherwise have been.

The summer season is upon us. For some that will mean a holiday. Or will it? Will it actually mean carrying with us all the burdens of our leadership to wherever we go for a break? Will it mean checking the phone for emails/texts/WhatsApp messages? Will it mean a struggle to switch off?
I recently read a post on Why Driven People Suck at Vacations, and it got me thinking. I am someone that loves holidays and has also struggled to find a way that makes them work for me and my family. I know some of you will not understand my struggle. You find holidays easy. But for those who struggle like me…
I used to believe holidays were for rest. Isn’t that what everyone says? ‘Have a good rest.’ I now realise that for me, whilst rest is part of a holiday, it is not the whole story. Holidays are for relational renewal, re-creation and rest.
