Growing up is an adventure. The Creation Fest Youth Village has four venues designed specifically to help young people discover the extraordinary journey of life and faith. If you are in school years 7 to 13, this is YOUR space!

A Youth Village?

Yep. A whole mini-festival, just for you! The Cove youth cafe, morning worship and teaching sessions aimed at Years 7-9 and 10-13, and a dedicated space for parents and youth leaders that’s far from the madding crowd. Plus a great line up of bands, speakers, workshops, activities, late night fun and the opportunity to join our street outreach teams. You’re not going to want to miss this!

What can I expect?

Oh… just a little bit of everything that’s fabulous and fun.

Our two separate venues, Riptide and Pipeline, will host a jam-packed daily programme that includes morning sessions, small groups, seminar streams, evening celebrations and fun activities, all specifically designed for young people.

Growing up in faith is best done with friends. This year, we welcomed some of our favourite people from around the globe to lead our sessions. Nate and Hannah Gallagher and Dan Lodge from Youth for Christ headed up our morning teaching, and the brilliant Alex Stark from Reboot took a fresh look at Living with Questions. Tearfund hosted our afternoon Living Extraordinary stream, and The Message Trust delivered a killer set of talks around identity and living in truth. PLUS: Lighthouse dance, Youth Lounge and The Cove youth cafe opened daily for chilling, snacks, drinks, games and more!


What’s it like?

Join Megan, Sam, Archie and Millie as they explore all that the festival has to offer. 

After Hours

Silent discos, barn dances, bonfires and fireworks – our late night programme means that the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down.

We’re actively planning some awesome 2020 activities right now, but to give you a taste, check out everything that happened during 2019 in the programme.

Better get some sleep in now then…

The Deck Cafe for parents and youth leaders

A dedicated grown-up space for kicking back, relaxing and connecting with other parents and youth leaders.

Created in partnership with Youth for Christ, expect chilled-out vibes, good coffee and conversation in this adults-only spot connected to the 7-13yrs venue, but separate from it. Perfect for supporting your younger young people at a distance, whilst encouraging them to get stuck in independently!

A life on mission

A chance for teens to grow in their faith by sharing it with others. ‘Because you’re loved’ is an opportunity for you to show and share God’s love in simple, practical and powerful ways.

Lead and guided by Scripture Union and Pais, no experience is necessary. Our team will provide full training, resources and supervision. We will be visiting five different off-site locations, as well as doing on-site outreach.


Want to meet other young people? Book a camping spot in our dedicated youth area and gather together for fun and friendship with youth groups from around the UK and beyond!
