What message/resource/event do you want to share with the thousands of men at our event?

2020’s event takes place 26-28 June 2020 ‘in a field near Swindon’. It’s a packed weekend of comedy, music, sport, Bible teaching, gospel ministry, worship, seminars, fun activities, sport and loads more. There’s even a bar!

Loads of church men’s groups and individuals attend, bringing their mates who aren’t Christians ... yet.

a massive event that’s unlike any other

The event continues to grow and grow since we kicked it off in 2011 when 486 men attended.

In 2020 we’re, once again, expecting around 2,500 guys to be at The Gathering with about 1,400 booked in as of the end of September. We reckon that makes it the biggest Christian men’s festival in England. It’s definitely the most fun! That’s what our attendees say:

“One word describes my experience of The Gathering ... awesome. I found the whole experience to be faith-confirming, spiritually uplifting and lots of fun.” Stephen, North Yorkshire
“The whole experience this year was amazing. I didn’t think last year would be bettered, but I was soooo wrong.” Tony, Shrewsbury

The Prayer Shed


The Prayer Shed is one of the key areas onsite. As well as individual and corporate prayer, it’s a venue that sees the odd seminar, deeper discussion, counseling, late night worship and the like.

Ideally, the sponsor of the Prayer Shed will be a ‘body’/organisation whose message ties in well with the culture of a prayer venue.

The exhibition space is within the Mess Tent, where guys hang out together.

It is also home to the bar, bookshop and CVM info stand, and is the place for resources, free tea and coffee, networking, fun activities, sports, pastimes and after-hours entertainment. There is also a relay screen showing the meetings from the main Big Top live.

We welcome applications from all organisations, broadly split into two categories:

1. If your organisation is involved in work directly lnked to mens ministry and / or evangelism. The bulk of our exhibitors fit into this category.

2. If the work of your organisation is not directly linked to men’s ministry, we are still able to offer space, if your exhibition stand includes a fun / challenging activity that men will enjoy taking part in. As well as adding value to the experience of our delegates it would naturally provide a draw and conversation starter for you with many potential supporters.

Stand size: 3m x 2m

Cost: £150

This includes two free places, additional stand representatives must book in and pay the full delegate price. Electricity - no additional cost, but must be pre-booked. Tables / chairs: no additional cost but must be booked in advance
