27th May 2018

Wildfires is a festival at Wiston House, West Sussex, bringing communities together from across the country and across the globe, to experience God’s presence. Over 3 days we’ll spend time together partying, praying, worshipping, growing in community and welcoming the Spirit into our midst.


We believe that as a Church, we’re a family. Encountering God not just in big tents but around campfires; shared meals and conversations. And we believe in a God who is passionate about communicating; no matter what our age.


We’re passionate about deepening existing friendships and forming new ones – connecting with others on the same journey but different paths, delving deeper in faith and encouraging each other as a community.


We believe that when we make space to encounter God, He shows up. We’re passionate about creating an encounter culture so that in every part of our time together we are expectant, ready and eager to meet with God.

What is going on

Across the festival there will be opportunities for everyone to creatively and prayerfully engage – spaces which will be devoted to delving deeper into the heart of who we are and who God is.

Everyone attending the whole of Wildfires Festival has full access to the Big Church Day Out South, which takes place on May 26th and 27th. For full information, head across to

Children & Youth

The Wildfires Village

The Wildfires camping village will be an opportunity to meet new friends and spend time in community together. There are 6 allocated villages for camping in communities, each with its own communal area and marquee. There is a variety of camping options you can choose from when booking your tickets.


We’ll be releasing more information about afternoon sessions, late-night worship and the space that we’ll be investing into learning and growing together as a family.
