LiveWires Online

Technical activity week for 12–15s

7th–14th August 2022 • Chafyn Grove School, Salisbury

Bookings open soon

Start your summer learning more about Jesus and technology.

Choose from coding, electronics, music production and more!

Build a technical project from scratch, with the tools used by professionals.

If you’ve never done this before, don’t worry: we’ll teach you everything you need to know. And you’ll take home what you’ve made to show off.

Is there more to life than tech?

Dig into the Bible through short talks, chatting with new friends, and praying together. Ask questions about the Christian faith, and discover what really matters.

In 2022 we’ll be exploring the whole story of the Bible, seeing more of God’s plan for His people, living in His world, and experiencing His blessing.

Take a break

We take time away from the computers every afternoon: jump in the pool, or chat by the sofa. You’ll end the day in a silly game with your dorm mates. And there’s the day out off-site…

Try something new

We’ll teach you everything you need, and you’ll come away with something cool to show off!

You'll get to choose from a combination of:

Video Production

Shoot and edit a short film or trailer, from storyboarding through to post-production.

Recording Studio

Record, edit, and master a podcast or song with professional gear.

Electronics

Pick up a soldering iron and build a cool gadget. Choose between a guitar pedal, an escaping robot, an LED cube, and more.

3D Modelling

Sculpt and animate a virtual model from your imagination using Blender.

Coding

Write your own mobile game or app using Javascript. Or learn HTML or CSS to build a website.

What do people say?

The tech was really fun, but the spiritual stuff was inspiring.
It’s been an amazing week and I’ve grown loads.
The worst part was leaving, because LiveWires is the best.
I’m going to miss all the leaders and young people sooo much.
A big thank you to all the leaders for making LiveWires such a wonderful holiday.
Can I come back as a leader?

Meet the team

LiveWires is run by a team of about 30 volunteers, including the overall leaders Joel & Roger.
