New Horizon is a seven-day Christian festival that takes place every year at the Ulster University, Coleraine, on the picturesque north coast of Northern Ireland. It exists to provide a space and time in which thousands of people of all ages can be taught from the Bible, be inspired through worship and story, develop a missional heart, and engage with relevant and challenging issues.
The Salt Factory Sports team is responsible for leading a sports and activities programme for 8-10-year-olds each evening from Monday to Friday. Team members will build relationships with the children, play lots of sports and games, teach Bible truths and demonstrate God’s love through their words and actions.
Our team will consist of up to 12 people age 17+. Activities will be held in the main Sports Hall of the University. There will be opportunity for team members to attend the morning teaching sessions in the main tent and some of the seminars at the festival. Afternoon team meetings will consist of devotions, prayer and preparation for the evening activities.
Team members will be expected to attend New Horizon Child Protection Training at the start of the event on Saturday 3 August and the volunteer commissioning service on Sunday 4 August.
