Volunteer

It takes hundreds of people behind the scenes to pull off an event as large as Spring Harvest, so we rely on a team of volunteers to help out! Join us this year and you'll be part of a brilliant team who get to experience Spring Harvest by serving God as a volunteer.

Interested in Volunteering?

You will receive:

  • Team accommodation (shared)
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses
  • 3 meals a day

Teams and availability

  • Stewarding
  • Admin
  • Retail
  • Hosting
  • Venue Security
  • Technical Support Team
  • Under Fives
  • 5-7s
  • 8-11s
  • Additional Needs
  • Prayer and Pastoral
All teams (except for the Stewarding Team) are able to accept volunteers for up to two weeks, spaces permitting. If you'd like to Steward for two weeks, you'll need to have a week’s break in the middle. If you want to volunteer as a Steward as well as serving on another Team, then Stewarding must be your second week as it's the most tiring.

  • 18 at the time of Spring Harvest
  • Happy to work within the EA Basis of Faith and the Lausanne covenant

Disclosure & Barring Service (formerly CRB) 

All volunteers working in the children and youth programmes will be required to obtain an Enhanced DBS Certificate with child list check.  Members of the stewarding, venue security, learning disabilities and pastoral teams (dependent on role) will be asked to obtain an Enhanced DBS Certificate.  

We will be processing some of DBS Certificates electronically and we will contact you via email with the link to our provider TMG-CRB secure on-line application service. Otherwise you will be sent a paper application in the post.

If you are unable to complete an online application form please contact your Team Administrator who will be able to post a paper application to you.

Pre-event information and other details 

A few weeks prior to the event, we will contact all volunteers with information about arrival days, times and lots of other useful information.
