New Horizon is the largest Christian event in Northern Ireland, attracting 5,000 people a day. Running at the University of Ulster in Coleraine since 1989, New Horizon is more than a conference – it is a time of refreshment, challenge, inspiration and encouragement for all the family with vibrant worship, evening celebrations, morning Bible teaching, topical seminars and high-energy Youth and Children’s programmes.
The event normally starts on the first Saturday in August and runs until the following Friday. It’s non-residential – so apart from pre-registration for the Children/Youth programme you can just turn up.
Each year we build a ‘tented village’ on the edge of the university campus with a ‘Main Tent’ that seats 3,500 people.
The Evening Celebrations start at 19:30 (Sat-Fri) and the morning Bible teaching starts at 10:00 (Mon-Fri), both in the New Horizon ‘Pavilion’. From 11:45-12:45 a number of NH Explore seminars take place in various locations in the tented village and lecture theatres in the main university building.
