Sorry, this event is sold out!
TØ Weekend is the annual Heart Church Youth weekend away at The University of Nottingham's Nightingale Hall.
As so many previous attendees would say it is a hugely fun weekend full of massive wide games, powerful times of worship, incredible guest speakers, and so many amazing chances to make new friends and create lifelong memories.
We are believing that all who attend will leave feeling inspired knowing that God is with them in their life.
When? From Friday 30th of August at 5 pm to Sunday 1st of September at 7 pm (finishing after the Heart Church 5 pm service)
Where? Nightingale Hall, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham NG7 2QS where all meals will be provided as well as an individual room for each attendee. All main sessions, both morning and evening, will then take place at Kings Meadow Campus, Lenton Ln, Nottingham NG7 2NR (where Heart Church Sunday services take place).
What + Who? A phenomenal weekend for 13-18-year-olds that is not one to be missed!*

THE WKND FAQs
Do I have to be a Christian to Attend?
You don’t have to be a Christian to attend, THE WKND is for anybody regardless of whether they have a faith or not. There are always people who come that aren't Christians. However, there is a significant amount of Christian input (worship and talks) but just like a normal TØ Friday night, everyone is welcome and will have serious amounts of fun!
What if I don't know anyone else who is coming?
Please don't worry if you don’t know anyone who is coming – it’s impossible not to make friends at a THE WKND. There is so much time spent together in different activities that you are guaranteed to get to know lots of people. And why not get some of your existing friends from school/college to book in for THE WKND 2019 too!
Why does it cost £99?*
This is the cost of 3 days accommodation with all meals included and use of The University of Nottingham facilities. This also covers the cost of all the activities and equipment we will be using over the weekend. Takeover does not make any money from this; in fact, we subsidise the cost out of church funds and people’s generosity. Our volunteer leaders pay for their own places.
What if I can't afford £99?
This year until the 21st of April we are offering an EARLY BIRD ticket for the reduced price of £77. These tickets are limited in number so make sure to grab yours as soon as you can!
Otherwise, we have made it as easy as possible to pay by instalments. These will be three payments of £33, to do this just select the payment plan option above. For further financial support and information about subsidies please contact us at THANDO@HEART.CHURCH or speak to your crew leader who will pass on your details to Thando.
Furthermore, if you want to sign more than one of your children up for THE WKND then the second and third children will have a discounted price!
What if I struggle staying away from home?
If you feel that you might need some extra support while you are away, please have a word with one of our leaders - we will do everything we can to make THE WKND as comfortable as possible for you. There will be adult leaders on hand 24/7 to support all our delegates throughout the weekend.
Who will be responsible for my safety?
All our youth leaders are DBS checked. Health and safety is a priority to us and we have the relevant risk assessments in place and have qualified first aiders available throughout the weekend. The University of Nottingham itself has had very successful youth events for a number of years and are committed to the safety and comfort of both our delegates and youth leaders.
What is expected of me when I come?
More than anything, we want you to have a great time! For everyone's benefit, we do have basic ground rules, which include:
• Absolutely no drugs (unless prescribed) or alcoholic beverages are permitted on site at any time - if you are found with these you will be sent home.
• We ask that you attend all the main meetings and take part in the additional activities of your choice.
• No boys in girls’ dormitories or vice-versa at any time.
• You must adhere to the health and safety guidelines given to you in the briefing at the start of the weekend.
• We expect you to treat all leaders and other young people with respect.
We really want every young person that comes to TØ to be at the THE WKND, we KNOW you will have a wonderful time! If you have any questions or concerns not addressed here, please get in touch with one of the Takeover team on 0115 9474038 and we would love to help.
