#TheGathering17: Auction Theme Announced! - 19 Sep 2017

We’re now less than six weeks away from our joint conference with Worship Central – and excitement is mounting for the incredible speakers, seminars, worship leaders and of course... our famous auction.

The Auction is a tradition at our conferences – an opportunity on the final night for an evening of wild, extravagant generosity.

Individuals and communities bid hundreds - sometimes thousands - of pounds against each other for homemade and second-hand items, with 100% of the proceeds going to those who need it most (but you’ll have to wait till the night to find out who).

And with this year’s auction taking place with the Worship Central community, we’re expecting the wildest night of bidding yet!

In the last few years we’ve auctioned off slippers, jumpers, bags and more – and for this year, we are truly proud to announce that this year’s theme is…


That’s right, 2017 is the year of denim.

We would love you to join in by bringing along a customised denim jacket; adding a bit of personality, a bit of style and maybe a bit of glitz and/or glam to this most versatile item of clothing.

If you want to get involved, here’s what you have to do:

  1. Customize or craft a denim jacket of your choosing
  2. Bring it with you to Birmingham
  3. Give it to one of the team before the Saturday night event
  4. Come along to the auction and get bidding!

If you’re new to the event - yes, it may sound a little bit unusual, but in the past our auctions have been some of the most crazy, exciting, downside up moments of meeting together.

So if you’re joining us on Saturday for the party, bring your denim jackets and get excited.
