31 July - 05 August 2021 / Stafford Showground
NEW HOME, MORE SPACE
DTI has now moved to the summer so get ready to enjoy the hotter weather, barbecues in the evenings and beautiful warm summer nights of worship bringing fresh encounters with God! We’re moving to our new home, the Staffordshire County Showground where there’s loads more space to welcome young people from churches and youth organisations everywhere. It’ll be warmer (hopefully!), there’ll be no exam stress, and it’s going to be 5 nights long! DTI will start with an evening meeting on Saturday 31 July and we'll finish at 11:30pm on Wednesday 04 August. We'll all head home on Thursday morning, 05 August.
We’d love to invite you to come and join us on this adventure!
WHAT HAPPENS AT DTI?
DTI is about inspiring and equipping young people to love God, love others and change the world. At DTI, the local church gathers together as one. We come together as family to worship Jesus, hear some great teaching from the Bible and spend loads of time learning how to pray for each other and hanging out in God’s presence.
There's also a jam packed schedule of football tournaments, open mic nights, music venues, seminars and coffee shops to keep you busy.
Every morning and evening we’ll come together to worship God, hear some great teaching from the Bible and spend loads of time learning how to pray for each other and hanging out in God’s presence.
Whether you're in need of a caffeinne hit or just a chocolate brownie, we've got you covered. During the day there are café's to catch up with friends or play a board game, at night they turn in to live venues, with everything from DTI entertainment, to singer/songwriters or something a bit more vibey to dance to.
If sitting still isn't really your thing, don't worry about it! There's the infamous DTI Football Competition, the DTI Wipeout and a huge selection of inflatables for you to use your energy on.
There are seminars throughout the day where you can dive deeper into the topics that interest you. Come prepared with your notebooks, you're going to want to jot this down.
You've not read that wrong. You'll get to have a go on the "extreme" ride - it's literally called that.
Get equipped and find out about some great organisations, or head over to the DTI Hub in the Station, where you can pick up some fresh DTI merch.
WHO'S GOING TO BE THERE?
We've got some great friends joining us for the week, plus loads more to be announced!
