Which team?

Most team members come for just one team but if you can come for two teams it provides continuity to the ministry: we welcome this and give a discount! If you want to come for more than 2 teams please get in touch and we will discuss this with you.
All teams start and finish on a Sunday, and there is a day off each week.
If you wish to arrive early or stay later you must find your own accommodation.
We only accept members for the full team dates.
