    YEC is for members of The Next Generation Ministry’s youth groups, open to secondary school ages. If you want to bring a friend, that’s great too!
  • How do I get there?

    Transport is not provided so you will need to make your own travel arrangements.

    For SatNav please use TN24 9JZ: As you are about to reach your destination and have turned left with the Harvester Pub on your right and the Pharmacy on your left, take the second left turn with the large Kingswood Grosvenor Hall signing showing a left turn then follow this road all the way to the centre entrance gates.

  • What about COVID-19?

    If anybody feels unwell, they may be sent home if their illness is suspected to be contagious.

  • What will we be doing there?

    There will be worship, games, teaching, discussion, prayer, some surprises, and a life-changing experience! You’ll belong to a small group with other youths your age, where you can talk with leaders who will look after you. 

    During free time, you can make new friends, study if you need to, or join in with organised activities like sports. There will also be adventure activities again, so get ready to climb! You’ll also attend an interactive workshop – select your choice on our website.

  • What’s the theme of the main sessions?


    Life is a gift to all of us, but there’s a lot to think about when it comes to figuring out what we want to live for. We fill our lives with so many different things in our pursuit of fulfilment. After being Rooted in our identity in Christ, this Easter we’re exploring our purpose to live it out. Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” – John 10:10.

    At Easter we remember the death of Jesus, and find that we have the freedom to live life to the full. As we enter the resurrection life, we receive the Holy Spirit so that “you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” – Ephesians 3:19.

    What kind of vessel are you going to be? Are you ready to be filled with a joy that overflows into the world around you?

  • Who is the keynote speaker?
    Our guest speaker is Ansonia Wong, youth pastor at the Birmingham Chinese Evangelical Church. Ansy was our speaker last year but sadly had to join us remotely due to Covid. We’re so thankful and excited to have her back with us this year at YEC23!
  • What’s the food like?

    Our first meal will be dinner on Friday evening, so make sure you eat lunch before you arrive.

    At mealtimes we’ll eat together in the Kingswood Kitchen. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know before camp.

    You may like to bring some cup noodles to enjoy as a late night snack!
