Children/Youth Programme

New Horizon is committed to serving the whole family from 0 to 85+. Our youth and children’s programmes are a vital part of the week providing a fun and encouraging environment for young people to flourish and grow as they learn about God. Here is a little taste of what happens during the week!

Different programmes are geared to appropriate ages and cover from Creche through to, (and including) 18 years of age. Training is undertaken by everyone supervising or with involvement in any part of the Youth Programme.

New Horizon adheres to a Child Protection Policy and is registered with AccessNI to carry out relevant checks on volunteer staff.

Registration for Children’s and Youth Programmes for 2024 will open on Monday 6 May 2024 and will close on Friday 19 July 2024.


The cost for each programme is £35 (Early Bird until 14 June) or £40 (Standard Rate from 15 June to 19 July).


  • Salt Factory Sports (P5-P7) provide a fun-filled programme for children in P5-P7 on Monday to Friday evenings from 19.15 to  21:15. Children must be booked in for both SU P5 – P7 (morning) and Salt Factory Sports by 14 June to receive the Early Bird discounted rate of £60 for two programmes, after that the cost of the two programmes is £70.
  • On the Edge :pm (Y8- Y11) The On the Edge team will be running both the morning and evening programmes for Y8 – 11.  Young people wishing to attend both must be registered for both the On the Edge:am and On the Edge:pm programmes by 14 June to receive the Early Bird discounted rate of £60, after that the cost of the two programmes is £70.

The Crèche & SU Programmes are for use only by children whose parents are attending the Morning Bible Teaching and/or Seminars. It would be appreciated if parents using the crèche over all five mornings would offer to help on one morning. Click here to volunteer

Young people are permitted to attend Livewire & On the Edge without their parents attending New Horizon. Parents are required to give the name of a responsible adult attending New Horizon such as their Youth Leader or the parent of a friend. Children must wear their badges or wristbands while at events. Parents must indicate at registration whether or not their children have permission to leave events unaccompanied. Parents collecting children at the end of events should do so as promptly as possible.

Photographs and Child Protection

Sometimes photographs or video clips are taken during the children and youth activities to be used for publicity purposes. If you have any objection to photographs or video footage of your child being taken please tick the relevant box on the registration form.  You can view our child protection policy here: New Horizon Child Protection Policy
