Every year, we rely on hundreds of volunteers to make Creation Fest happen. Our amazing volunteers do everything from setting up the site before people arrive to serving coffee in our cafes; from having fun in the families tent to praying for people after meetings.

Stay tuned for our volunteer booking system opening soon!


Is it for me?

If you have a good sense of humour and are willing to work hard and serve God well, you’ll fit right in! For most teams, volunteers will need to be over 18 years of age, although for some teams it’s 16+. You don’t have to come all week (although for some teams it is necessary). Read through the team descriptions for more details and to find the right one for you.

How much time does it take?

Volunteers will need to arrive on Wednesday 31 July 2024 and be available for all four days of the festival (Thursday 1 August – Sunday 4 August inclusive). If you’d like to be involved but are not available all weekend, please do get in touch with our volunteer coordinator to discuss options.

Want to help behind the scenes? Join us for build week or come when the music stops and help us pack down the site and litter pick our campsite. Whatever time you have to give, there’s a way for you to get involved.

What do I get out of it?

It might be the busiest long weekend of your summer, but it also may well be the best. Meet new people, learn new skills, grow your faith, and have buckets of fun in the process. Plus, you get to camp for free!
