Join our team of volunteers

Keswick Convention could not happen without our army of volunteers. It takes around 650 volunteers help to make the Convention possible each year. We are so grateful for all those who give their time to serve at the Convention. And we’d love you to get involved, too! 

Want to be first to know when applications open for 2024 Convention?

Fill out this form and we will let you know once applications open in the Autumn. This does NOT guarantee you a space on the team.

The Convention is such a great place to come and volunteer because of the people you work with, the encouragement of serving others, and the beauty of the local area to explore.

There are so many roles that you can get help with, from volunteering in reception to serving in the gift processing or technical teams. If you’ve got a heart for working with children, youth or in the crèche, then please apply for roles within our children’s and youth ministry. Places are also available on the café and catering teams. 

Keswick Convention runs across 3 separate weeks. We recommend volunteers apply for a single week which runs Saturday to Saturday. The volunteer dates for 2024 Convention are as follows:

  • Week 1: 13th – 19th July
  • Week 2: 20th – 26th July
  • Week 3: 27th July – 2nd August

It will be great to have you on team, so please do send in your applications sooner rather than later.

Please note that if you are wanting to serve on one of our teams which require a DBS (Children & Youth teams etc) you will need to have your application in by  Wednesday 1st May 2024. Any people who apply after that date will not be able to serve on one of those teams. 

Our volunteer teams are now full for the 2023 Convention. You can join the waiting list and we will let you know if a space comes up on the team.

Part Time Volunteer Teams

Over the last few years, we have noticed that some Convention visitors are keen to help out part-time. So we have decided to make part-time volunteering happen from 2023!

If you are already planning on attending the Convention, have your accommodation organised and would like to help out on either a morning or evening, we have a few teams where that would be possible. 

Please complete an application form like the full time volunteers do, making sure you click on the part time position you are applying for.


Please note that we are not able to provide accommodation, meals or reimburse travel expenses for part-time volunteers.  

Step 1: Can I apply?

We ask that: 

All team members, whatever their role in the Convention or other areas of Keswick Ministries’ work, are able to declare their faith in Jesus Christ as their Saviour, Lord and God. By accepting the invitation to serve on a team you are indicating your personal commitment to Christ. 

All office staff, speakers, team leaders, volunteers and those in any form of public speaking ministry (including team members in children’s work, youth, young adults, Keswick Unconventional, signers, etc.) affirm their commitment to the truths outlined in our doctrinal statement. By accepting the invitation to serve with Keswick Ministries you are indicating your personal affirmation of these truths.

  • You are over 18, or over 20 for the Youth Team 
  • You can commit to a whole week, arriving and departing on the respective Saturdays 
  • You are able to attain a satisfactory Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check prior to the beginning of the event (Kids & Youth Teams only) 
  • You are eligible to serve in the UK (we are unable to assist with any Visa applications) 
  • You can provide two references – one of which must be someone in a recognised leadership role within your church, who sees you at least twice a month, and ideally has known you for at least one year. The second referee needs to have known you for at least 2 years. 

Step 2: Online Application Process

Use the button below to register your interest for volunteering at the 2024 Convention and we will be in touch once applications open. Please note that this does not guarantee you a place on team.

Step 3: Submit Application

What happens next?

You will receive an automatic acknowledgement and we will start the application process, communicating with you at regular intervals. Please note that applications can take around 4-6 weeks to complete, depending on suitable allocation to a team and the obtaining of references. Once you have been offered a place on team and we have satisfactorily completed all checks and references you will receive all the practical information at the beginning of June.
