If there is anything else you need and you can’t find it, check out our FAQs.
If you’re new to camping but want to stay on site, don’t worry,
there will be lots of friendly people from your church family
around to help you.
The Westpoint site is divided into camping areas for each church to camp together. Camping together as churches is one of the highlights of Westpoint as relationships get built over games and late evening hot chocolate.
We aim to make your camping experience as good and pleasant as possible so rest assured that there will be plenty of toilets and showers around the site.
Please note: Whilst there are electric points around the site, these are for church marquee use only and should not be used by delegates.
Additional note: The cost of camping increases the closer to the event you book. Any bookings after the 31st July 2019 for on-site camping will also not be guaranteed a spot with their church site and may have to camp elsewhere. View our pricing for more information.
If camping isn’t for you, then you don’t need to feel left out. Off-site and day tickets are available and there are plenty of B&Bs and hotels in the area.
Visit the Westpoint Exeter website for a list of local accommodation or consider using the Devon Tourist Board.
Please note: Coming for the day will not allow you to camp overnight. View our booking and pricing for more information.
Cancellations and alterations
Before 30th June, you can cancel or amend your booking. If you are cancelling you will receive a full refund minus a £15 admin fee. After 30th June, we regret that no refunds will be given.
Children and Youth
All under 17’s must book in with an adult who will be responsible for them at all times during the event. If delegates are aged 18 they can choose to attend as an Adult or Youth delegate. Selecting Youth would allow them to attend the Youth programme but will need a designated responsible adult listed on their booking. Selecting an Adult ticket as an 18-year-old will mean they will not be allowed to attend the Youth meetings or activities.

In the adult meetings
For those who are hard of hearing, deaf interpretation and electronic note taking will be available during the main meetings and in some seminars.
A hearing loop will also be in operation during the main meetings and the seminars.
Prior arrangements can be made for individuals to gain access to the meeting venues early to ensure an appropriate seat is available.
Count everyone in
At WESTPOINT we are excited to be partnering with ‘Count everyone in’, who are passionate about reaching adults with learning disabilities with the love of Jesus and equipping churches to disciple them in their faith. They have run sessions at WESTPOINT before as well as at several other Christian conferences.
Each morning and on one evening there will be a session intended specifically, but not exclusively for adults with learning disabilities and on the autism spectrum. There will be sensitively led worship, easy to understand Bible teaching, drama, art craft and much more. No sign up is needed, just turn up on the day and enjoy the fun!
Around the site
Cars are only permitted on the Westpoint site in exceptional circumstances. A chauffeur-driven buggy service will be on offer to ensure all areas of the site can be accessed by those who are unable to get around on foot.
There is also reserved blue badge / disabled parking. This is linked to a regular buggy service which allows greater access to the rest of the site.
For those who wish to camp, accessible toilets and showers are available. For those needing wide accessible showers, we have an arrangement with a local sports centre to use their facilities which can be arranged prior to the event. Please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page should you need to enquire about this.
Accessible kids’ work
The Ark will be running a group for any children who have difficulty accessing the mainstream kids or youth work, whether that is a result of care, physical, emotional or behavioural needs, or specific conditions. We have an experienced team so you can be sure your children are in safe hands. If your child attends a special needs school, or has specific support to access mainstream school, then The Ark is here for you.
Please help us to help your child by specifying any needs they may have at the time of booking by clicking the “I have an Accessibility need” box and entering the details of this in the text box provided.

Can I have a tent on-site as a day visitor?
My child is nearly old enough to go to the next age group up. Can they move?
You will appreciate that we have to draw the line between age groups somewhere and wherever that line is drawn, there will be someone in your position asking the same question. Please help us by respecting the age groups and taking your child to the appropriate one. Their date of birth on their booking is also used in case of a medical emergency so we would strongly advise against changing their details.
Is there electric hook-up?

Where are the local shops?
Are there any cash machines on-site?
Can I bring my bicycle?
Whilst you are welcome to bring a scooter or skateboard, ridden bicycles are not permitted on site for health and safety reasons. There will be off-site bicycle rides as part of Festival activities. However, we ask that you push your bike across the site to reach your departure location.

Is the site secure?
