How does Contagious cost £315?*
*Contagious in 2017 was £315 per person across all conferences.
We work very hard to make Contagious as affordable as we can while maintaining the distinctive qualities of our conferences.
As you can see three-quarters of our costs are ‘venue hire‘ and each venue this year has increased their fees. We have searched the country for the best venues that provide clean and comfortable accommodation, quality catering and good teaching and sports facilities at the lowest prices.
You will see that the remainder of Contagious fee is mainly staff costs for our employed Contagious team. We run a very small admin team in Dunstable and employ one full-time worker to lead the team, visit churches and grow Contagious. We rely on many volunteers and those employed are already subsidised by donations from our supporting churches. Please note that all our conference leaders also pay the full fee to attend Contagious so young people do not contribute anything towards the leaders’ fees.
To help young people and leaders, we have a separate bursary fund that is used to help anyone who needs financial support to attend Contagious. Please download our Bursary Application form should you wish to apply for assistance – we would be delighted to help.
Fund Raising Ideas
We encourage churches to find ways to fundraise their way to Contagious too. We have produced 20 Fund Raising Ideas for Youth Groups that give examples of fun ways to raise funds.
Many Churches provide financial support to their leaders and young people to attend Contagious and Contagious Nano. If your church would like to support your young people and leaders it is a great way to help invest in their discipling.
