Refuel - Team members

Please read these pages and click the link at the bottom to proceed.


Welcome to the Team sign up page where you can volunteer to be part of the Refuel Team. It takes an army of willing volunteers giving their gifts and skills to make the event happen. Thank you for considering volunteering in either a full-time or part-time capacity.  We give a big warm welcome to those team members who have served before and a big warm welcome if you are new to the Refuel team.

We have an amazing range of teams where you can serve others and find that you are blessed through your service. You can choose which team you would like to join.

There are a few things that we would like you to know about how the various teams operate. Each team has a leader who organises the work to be done and schedules a rota for their team.  The teams are dynamic, there are lots of regular jobs to be done each day but there are times when the team reacts to events that occur. It's important that our team members can react positively and can handle changes as they happen. Our priority is for everyone to be safe and have a good time and it is the attitude and ability of our teams that make this happen.

Whilst serving on team can take a lot of your time you are free to attend any of the seminars, celebrations and evening entertainment on offer, when not on duty.

There are daily meetings for team members and your team leader will let you know when you need to attend.


The festival starts on Monday 22nd July at NOON and all team members are asked to attend an opening team meeting at 10.00am in the Tower Hall on the Monday morning. If you are unavailable to make this please let us know by emailing

This is a welcome meeting where you will meet your team leader, and at which instructions and guidance are given.

If you are camping, you can arrive onsite from 9am to set up your tent and settle in. You may be ask come earlier in the day to assist with the arrival of camping delegates (camp hosts only).

The event opens to delegates at 12 noon on Monday 22nd July.

The conference ends at 10pm on Thursday 25th July 2024.

Camp site closes to everyone on Friday 26th July at 10am.

Other Information

There are daily team meetings throughout the week and occasionally extra meetings will be organised by your team leader. Your team leader will let you know the times that you will be on duty.


We are very grateful for the time and gifts that are given by the members of our Team. We recognise that our Team volunteer a significant amount of time each day and that on the days that they volunteer they have restricted access to events in the festival, in recognition of this we offer …..
