Sessions really are the heart of the weekend and we have so much fun with them!

Each one is packed with awesome games, impactful worship, and powerful messages. 

While there are so many fun aspects to the weekend this is the time we get to build into your students spiritually and speak to their hearts. This is a meaningful time of worship and opening up the word of God.

All students and leaders are expected to attend all sessions. Students who are ill, or otherwise unable to attend, must have the permission of their cabin leaders, who will also be responsible for those students while they are away from group events.

Small group

During the weekend we will also break off into small group time after the sessions. This is a time for you and your leaders to dig deeper into the messages with your students. As the leader, you know the best way small groups work for your students.

If small group is not something you typically do and need some ideas, we can help you with that. Small group material will be provided.

Small group


Regardless of the size of your ministry, we want you to be a part of this weekend. Your group will be placed on a team with other churches from your area (as best we can). This is an awesome opportunity for your group to meet new people but also for you as a leader to rub shoulders with some fellow ministry leaders. Your group will become a part of something bigger than just your local youth ministry.

Your team name and colour will be emailed to you before the weekend so you and your students can come pumped and ready for the weekend!

Our Emcee, Nick Pegg will also be selling Hashtag Hope merch. 

This will be set up in the Underground on Saturday afternoon.

It is not a requirement for students to buy stuff or anything like that we just wanted to let you know so that you can give students the option to bring some spending money.
