Apply By Post

Sadly, this residential holiday has been cancelled. We are planning to run some Virtual Ventures instead - check out our promo video here!

Last year Sparkford 1 was bursting at the seams, so this year we're going bigger! Why only have one Sparkford 1 when you could have two? This year we're introducing Sparkford 1 @ Brambletye. With members and leaders from Sparkford 1, it'll be the same fun in the sun: the same Bible teaching, seminars, games, food & theme, it'll be the Sparkford we love, just in the stunning beauty of West Sussex.

Initially space for 60 teenagers.

About The Leaders:

Our leaders and taskforcers come from all over the country. We all love Jesus and count it a privilege to spend 8 days of our summer sharing our lives and the gospel with everyone on Sparkford 1 at Brambletye. Many of our leaders are youth group leaders at the home churches of the members.

Accommodation Type:

We sleep in dorms of 5-7 people, in the plush accommodation that the school provides for its boarders.

Activities and Programme:

Fun in the sun, food with friends, fantastic activities and the free grace of God - all this and more is on offer this summer at Sparkford 1 at Brambletye. Whether you love sport or craft or team games or drama or chilling out, we have something for you, all mixed together with a brilliant programme of Bible studies, seminars and talks that will help you get to know Jesus.

About Site and Area:

Come and spend 8 nights in the luxurious comfort of Brambletye School, a picturesque mansion in West Sussex, overlooking the Ashdown Forest and Weir Wood Reservoir - a view that will take your breath away as you come up the drive. The school is set in 140 acres of woodland which we are able to enjoy to the full. With lots of exciting local activities and the seaside not too far away, there's lots to look forward to!
