event passes

Many guests stay in a B&B, caravan or cottage local to Prestatyn and come to Word Alive each day. This is an option we’re keen to expand so more guests can join us.

If you stay off-site you need to buy an Event Pass giving you access to the full Word Alive programme as well as the facilities of the Holiday Park. These will be available on this website in the autumn.

The access points to the site will be available at all hours, so you can come and go as you choose, for instance staying late for After Hours.

Evening celebrations are streamed live on youtube, so if you have wifi access you can watch the evening meetings as though you had chalet TV.

Some local accommodation is within walking distance to the site. For instance the Beaches Hotel or the Lido Beach Caravan Park – see www.lyonsholidayparks.co.uk and click on Lido Beach, or call 01745 881915.

There are a variety of places to stay in and around Prestatyn – you may find the cheapest are caravan parks nearby.

Off site accomodation is often more affordable, and spaces aren’t limited in the way on site accomodation is.

  • Talk to your CU Staff Worker or group organiser to let them know if you aim to book off site accommodation
  • off site CU students receive a free hot drink voucher for the Word Alive café each day - don’t forget to claim it!
  • Remember you’ll need to get both an off site pass from word alive and book somewhere to sleep off site
  • Your off site passes are half price
  • Please note that most private caravan parks don’t allow single sex bookings to prevent stag and hen parties, so you may wish to contact the owners to see if there is any lee-way.  Here is some suggested wording: "We are a single sex group wishing to book this caravan. We are attending a local Christian conference that takes place locally each year. The event is ‘Word Alive’ and can you can see details of the event here: https://wordaliveevent.org. Due to our Christian values we do wish to book a single sex caravan, and we wonder if you could make an exception in our circumstance for our booking. If you have any further questions please do get in touch."
  • If you have any further questions about booking off site accommodation, please ask your CU Staff Worker in the first instance or contact info@uccf.org.uk or mail@wordaliveevent.org
