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.

Youth Teams - Distinctive and iScape
Each week there are a limited number of volunteer spaces for these teams. If you are interested in being part our youth team please complete the enquiry form in the usual manner and we will contact you with availability and the process.
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 is considered the most tiring.
