Emmaus Rd is going to Wildfires and we’d love for you to join us at Wiston House in West Sussex from 31st May – 2nd June 2021.
Wildfires is a festival bringing communities together from across the country and globe to experience God’s presence. We’ll spend time as both Emmaus Rd and a wider community together partying, praying, worshipping, growing and welcoming the Spirit into our midst. You can find out more at wildfiresfestival.com
we will be catering at the Emmaus Village for dinner on Monday and Tuesday evening. Information about food and booking will be released closer to the event date.
If you are part of the Emmaus Rd community and want to camp with Emmaus Rd, there’s a unique booking link available here, and select Emmaus Rd to enable you to do so.
*If you are bringing a caravan or camper van please note that you do need to book camping pitch space for the number of people staying in your caravan or camper.
Everyone attending the whole of Wildfires Festival has full access to the Big Church Day Out South, which takes place on May 29th & 30th! An added bonus is that under 10’s at Emmaus Rd can go to Wildfires half price!
We do have bursaries available and if you would like to apply you can do so by downloading an application form which will be available soon.
More information about the main programme, afternoon sessions, late-night worship and the space that we’ll be investing into learning and growing together as a family will be coming soon! As well as more information on Children, Youth and Wildfires Labs.
We’d strongly encourage Sunday afternoon arrival and Thursday morning departure (11am get out) as the programme starts bright and early on Monday 31st and ends late on Wednesday 2nd. There will be 2 occasions, on Sunday afternoon and Wednesday morning whilst we are at Wildfires that we will be gathering together as an Emmaus Rd community (more info coming soon).
Volunteering for Wildfires is now available and you can find out all you need to know about which teams are taking volunteers and the schedule for volunteering here.This is a great way to contribute to the festival, meet new people and depending if you are a full time volunteer or part time you could get 3 meals a day and free access to BCDO and Wildfires! It will be great to see many Emmaus Rd faces across teams serving over the time we have together.
There will also be an Additional Needs tent and team. More information about this will be made available to you soon.
The Wildfires camping village will be an opportunity to meet new friends and spend time in community together. There are 10 allocated villages for camping in communities, each with its own communal area and marquee. There is a variety of camping options you can choose from when booking your tickets. Please note that caravans, camper vans, Rent-a-tent and glamping will be located in their own section of the campsite. Rest assured you’re free to roam the campsite and come and join in with village activities!
If you are a camping novice or just like to plan ahead here is a recommended WF KIT LIST that could become your check-list as you prepare to join us this year.
