TeenStreet UK is running for its 2nd year on 27th July – 2nd August 2023 at The Poplars, near Ledbury, and we hope to see you and your youth group there!
TeenStreet UK is open to participants aged 13-17.
We welcome 18+ to serve on our Service Team!
Come and join us this summer to spend the week having fun, encouraging teems to go deep in their faith and learning how to be bold in sharing it with others, including those who have not yet heard about Jesus!
Life at TeenStreet
A typical day starts with breakfast, followed by Main Hall, which includes a time of worship, some games and a chance to learn about the theme for the day’s Bible Study.
After this is Shhh Time, a chance to be still and listen to what God might be telling you that day – stare at the clouds as they go past, look at the grass and marvel at God’s creation. Just shut your eyes and listen to the stillness.
During NET1 you’ll meet together with your small group to look deeper at the day’s Bible Study; there will be time to talk together and time for your own private Bible Study during that time.
After lunch, which comes next, Interact Time is a chance to go to workshops or seminars that you signed up for that morning, play games, join in with other fun activities or just hang out with friends. Get to know some new friends, or spend time with those you came with.
After dinner at NET2 you’ll meet with your small group to pray and be ready for Throne Room. During this time of worship, you’ll have the chance to go up for prayer if you would like to.
There’s more time in evening Interact Time to hang out with friends, maybe join in with some night games or watch a movie in the evenings before NET3 - a quick catch up with your small group - and then bed!

There are two accommodation options for the week:
- Camping (bring your own camping equipment. Please note the use of stoves and other cooking equipment are not permitted. ) – price tbc
- Accommodation block (same-gender shared room) – price tbc
Both options include:
- Onsite toilet and shower facilities
- 3 meals provided each full day, as well as dinner on arrival day and breakfast and packed lunch on departure day
- Access to all teaching sessions, small group time, worship, and workshops and seminars
- Bible Study manuals.
Each person will have their own allocated space to pitch a tent or dorm to sleep in.
In both cases, a Youth Leader comes for free with every 6 teens!
Every year TeenStreet UK will be raising funds for a project that works with teens. Teens can get involved by joining our sponsored race; each lap is roughly 1 mile long and we record how many laps are run so for per lap sponsorship. Even if they can’t run, teens can support the runners by cheering them on and high fiving them on their way round!
Details of arrival day will be published soon.
You will need to make your own way to TeenStreet, but may choose to travel as a youth group.
Please make sure you arrive in enough time for your teens to pitch their tent if they are camping.
Once you reach the TeenStreet UK site, there will be team to direct you to where to go. Your first stop will be the registration point where everyone will sign in and collect their badge. You can then head to the accommodation.
Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities for children and infants on-site.
No pets are allowed onsite except for registered service animals. If you have a service animal, please get in contact beforehand. We will need you to ensure it wears a harness or lead that identifies it at all times on site.
Everyone at TeenStreet will have three full meals provided for during each day, as well as an evening meal on arrival day, and breakfast and a packed lunch on departure day. They may bring other food snacks if they wish, but they will not be able to cook onsite.
We hope that there will be something to enjoy at each meal, there will be a variety of options to choose from.
If you have any dietary needs, please let us know on the registration form to ensure we accommodate these.
If you have any additional queries about food, please email us at email@example.com.
We would love to see YOUR youth group at TeenStreet!
If you have questions about bringing your youth group that are not answered here, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our desire is to partner with the church’s youth group. Individuals or groups without leaders are certainly welcome at TeenStreet UK, but we believe that the time will be more effective if the teens and leaders go through the same experience.
We are not putting a limit on the number of teens that can come from any one Church. We want to encourage as many as possible to come and participate. Where possible it would be great to have a leader attend with every six teens – helping to run the NET groups.
We may be able to accept 12 year olds who are actively involved in and coming as part of a youth group, and can participate on a level with 13 and 14 year olds for small group Bible Study sessions as well as during the rest of the programme.
Please contact us at email@example.com to discuss this.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept 12 year olds wishing to sign up as individuals.
Where possible we would encourage Churches to bring one leader for up to every six teens to run their NET groups.
If you are bringing a smaller group than six teens, we may combine your teens with others coming in other groups less than six, or as individuals. Please email to discuss this further.
Should a Church group want to stay together for their NET group sessions, this is possible as long as there is one leader to every six teens within that group. This ratio can be discussed in individual circumstances. If you are the leader booker of a large church group, please get in touch with us prior to the event by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome individual teens as well, and will place them in a NET group for the week for small group time including Bible studies. Their coach (small group leader) will be there to support them during the week.
Unfortunately not all churches are able to send youth leaders.
In this instance, we will ensure that all teens are part of a suitable NET group with a coach who will look after them for the duration of the week.
We want to help youth leaders to invest in their teens, and so we want to invest in youth leaders by making it possible for them to come along!
For every six teens in a church group, bring one youth leader free – either for camping or shared room. Please get in touch with us by email at email@example.com if you are bringing at least 6 teens from your church so we can arrange your free space.
To set up a group booking, please get in touch with us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you are set up with a group booking, you may be able to add additional teen and youth leader names at a later date.
