At Word Alive, all ages can look forward to one of the very best weeks of their year.

There is a specially prepared programme for those aged from 3 months to 18 years. The teaching and activities are of the highest quality: engaging, relevant and enjoyable, allowing children and young people to grow in their faith and be encouraged to live for Jesus with their friends and school mates back home. The children and youth tracks will focus on the same part of the Bible as the adults so that families can talk about what they’re learning and their love for Jesus.

We’re pleased to welcome children and youth with additional needs to our programmes. Whatever extra is required, from giving information to the Team Leader all the way through to targeted one-to-one support from an experienced worker we will do our best to provide from the resources we have available.

We have groups for across six different age ranges:

  • Scramblers: Crèche and pre-school provision for 3 months–3 years
  • Transformers: Reception and starting reception in 2023
  • Trailblazers: For school years year 1–2
  • Heroes: For school years 3–6
  • Ignite: For school years 7–9
  • Resolved: For school years 10–13

(These are school years in England and Wales. In Scotland or Northern Ireland the terminology will be different.)


You will need to complete a registration form for each of your children closer to the event. We will send an email notification when registration forms are available.


We are committed to making Word Alive a safe place for children. You can read our safeguarding policy here.
