'I loved being part of the kids team! It was an amazing week for everyone to bond and learn more about God's heart. The children in my group really began to open up and understand what being part of God's kingdom was like. It was amazing how in just a week, these children's lives were transformed and they went home different to how they first arrived!'

Focus Kids and Focus Youth
Our vision for Focus Kids and Youth is to raise up a generation who love God, know the good news of Jesus and are passionate about sharing this good news to the world. We would love to invite you to be part of this vision and help us to encourage children and young people to take exciting steps in their spiritual journey. With a fantastic week, jam-packed full of teaching, worship, games, sports, crafts, guest speakers and much, much more. We're really excited to see what God is going to do on the beautiful Somerley Estate this year...come and join us.
Our Tent and Our Hut
Our Tent and Our Hut support children and youth with special needs. Each young person requiring support will have a one-to-one buddy to work out how they would like to spend the session, in the mainstream venues, special needs venues or a combination of both.
Be a part of the team that helps direct guests around the site, welcomes guests to the main venues, checks their wristbands and answers any questions they might have. You will also be our eyes and ears communicating anything that needs resolving, and helping to keep the venues tidy and in order.
If you serve on this team you will receive a discounted event pass costing £95.
If you have a great smile and love greeting people this is the perfect team for you. We would love your help with welcoming guests to Focus on registration days. You will be spread across the site helping people to find their way around, answering questions and lending a helping hand.
If you are keen to be a part of an exciting and fast paced team making Focus look awesome, then this is the team for you. Due to the nature of the team, previous experience in the following areas is required:

If you have experience in these areas then we would love to hear from you. If you serve on this team you will receive a free event pass and your camping/caravan spot will be free.
Capturing those special moments, the fun festival vibes, the relaxed chilled times, is all part of the average day for our photography team.
