• About the event

Hey Friends of SOUL Youth!

We are so incredibly excited to invite you to be a part of SOUL Shift 2024. The UK’s number one youth camp is back for a 4th year running and it is shaping up to be our biggest and best year yet! There is such a tangible hunger in young people for the things of God. The purpose of Shift is to give youth a life changing weekend of encountering God through worship, the Word, breakouts and of course fun and community with their friends. We'd be delighted to welcome youth ages 11-17 to join us this year as we go to new levels. We as a team know this will be an incredible opportunity for youth to come together and encounter the love of Jesus in fresh and exciting ways.

We are back at the Royal Hospital School in Ipswich. A gorgeous boarding school set in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. It is approximately a 1.5 hour drive from Soul Church and we will be hiring coaches to transport youth from Soul Church to the camp and back again. The camp starts on Saturday morning 24th August and finishes on Tuesday afternoon 27th August 2024. We will send out specific drop off and pickup times as we get closer to August.

Below is the link to sign up and purchase your tickets. The ticket price is all inclusive; the only things not covered are optional extras like merch, tuck from the tuck shop or snacks from the school coffee shop.
