What is UPRising Europe?
UPRrising Europe stands for “United Prayer Rising for Europe”. It is a worship and prayer gathering, which invites people from every nation in Europe to contend for an awakening amongst the next generation.
What is “UPRising”?
UPRising Europe is part of the global UPRising movement birthed out of the World Prayer Assembly in 2012 in Indonesia. The first UPRising event was held in Seoul, South Korea in July 2016 when thousands of young people gathered to pray for the unity of their nation (click here for a video). Since then, there have been UPRising events in the Philippines, South Africa, Mongolia, Bolivia, Canada, and Indonesia, with others being planned in the States, Canada, and Brazil. "UPRising Europe" is the European response to this global call for the young generation to come together in unity to worship and pray.
Who is “UPRising Europe” connected to? UPRising Europe is partnering with and endorsed by the following: BURN 24-7, Elim Prayer, YWAM, Ashburnham Place, World Prayer Centre Birmingham, International Prayer Connect, InterPrayer International Partnership, International House of Prayer Timisoara, Prayer Hub TV, YWAM. Who is UPRising Europe for? The programme is aimed at anyone with a heart or passion for Europe, and the next generation being saved and discovering their identity. Our focus in prayer is young people, but we welcome people all ages to pray for this generation.
What will the programme consist of? The backbone of the event will be 72 hours of non-stop worship and prayer led by worship teams from all over Europe. Out of this will flow prayer and intercession for Europe, with inspiration from speakers in our main sessions each morning and afternoon. We will be hosting practical seminars equipping young people in a lifestyle of prayer, fasting and evangelism. Finally on the last day (Thursday) we will host a ‘solemn assembly’ of non-stop prayer from 12:00 to 20:00, during which time there will be commissioning to take this fire back to their nations.
What time does the event start and end? We start at 20:00 on Monday 8th July and end on Thursday 11th at 20:00.
When can I arrive? Registration opens at 16:00 on Monday 8th July.
What are my transport options?
The address of our venue is Ashburnham Place, Battle, East Sussex, TN339NF, United Kingdom. By car: It is about 2 hours’ drive from London and 1.5 hours from Dover. There are designated free car parks onsite but please carshare where possible as spaces are limited.

How does camping work? You will be allocated a space for your tent (if you bring your own) or a space within a tent (if you’re unable to bring your own tent, we will aim to provide you with one). There will be allocated showers and toilets available for campers across site. If you come by car, please park in one of the car parks, not by your tent. No disposable BBQs or rogue bonfires are allowed on the site; only BBQs which are suspended off the ground are permitted.
What is ‘standard’/’shared’ accommodation? You will share a bathroom with two or three other bedrooms, and if you indicate that you are happy to ‘share’, we will put you together with 1-3 other people of a similar age and gender in the same room. This enables us to use the maximum capacity of available rooms, which helps towards the financing of the event and allows as many people as possible to get a bed.
What does ‘ensuite’ accommodation mean? You will have a private bathroom for yourself and whoever you have chosen to share the room with (at time of booking). If you are coming on your own, you will have the room and bathroom for yourself.
Accessibility/Disabilities If you require an accessible bedroom, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as there is only a limited number of accessible bedrooms available. Most toilets and meeting rooms onsite are wheelchair accessible.
Is food included in the ticket? Yes, full board is included for all tickets* which will consist of three simple meals a day. If you are camping, you are welcome to bring and cook your own food but please ensure that you can store and cook safely. We aim to cater for common intolerances (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian etc) but please make sure that you let us know about any food intolerances when booking your ticket. * If you have booked a day pass, this does not include food, but you can choose to pay an extra £10 to cover your food for the day.
Do you refund tickets? Unfortunately, we cannot refund any tickets but they are transferable (an administrative fee of £20 will be charged for any changes.) You can transfer your ticket to another person so that they can attend. Furthermore, we hope that if you are unable attend, you will consider your contribution as your part in sowing in to what God is doing in Europe.
