The BigChurchDayOut offers worship, activities and music for all ages, so every member of your church can come and be part of something inspiring and powerful. Join us in a joyful demonstration that God is very much alive and at work all over the UK and beyond.
The BigChurchDayOut is all about us coming together to celebrate our faith, no matter what our church or background. The inaugural event at Wiston, West Sussex in May 2009 attracted 15,000 people, making it the biggest one-day Christian event in the UK. In 2010, with an additional site in the Midlands, over 25,000 came together over 3 days to worship and have fun together, and with just one event at Wiston House in 2011 BCDO again saw 20,000 join in celebration.
The BigChurchDayOut is about people and faith, music and worship, activities, families, and just being together. There’s something for everybody, from a nice cup of tea with a Chamber Orchestra, to high energy worship, and some of the best ‘Christian’ music the world has to offer…it’s all about being ‘church’ together.
Our aim is to encourage and inspire people to press in for all that God has called them to do, both locally and further afield, and to provide a relaxed environment to introduce friends and family who have little or no experience of church.
