How to Host Southern Fire in Your Town

A number of people have expressed their wish to become involved in Southern Fire in their area! Here's what's involved, and what you can do to make this happen.

The Dunedin-based Southern Fire management team will liaise with local church leaders and pastors to arrange guest speakers, along with electives and topics to be included in the suggested programme of events.

What the traveling team will bring with them:

  • A core staff of people, free of charge
  • The marquee, which seats 300 - 1200
  • Equipment for the tent, including chairs, and most lighting and other equipment
  • A suggested programme of events, covering the time in your particular town
While it is anticipated that the marquee will be used in larger towns, there may be alternative venues in smaller towns.
What we are asking hosts to do or arrange:

  • Find and arrange a suitable site
  • Obtain consent for the site if required
  • Accommodation for the traveling team
  • Form a local, dedicated team of people to organize the following:
    • Volunteers/helpers for your area
    • Co-ordination of support between local churches for the event, including prayer
    • Make local arrangements for matters such as meals,accommodation and music
Items likely to incur a cost to hosts:

  • Consents (where required)
  • Local advertizing
  • Meals and accommodation for the Southern Fire traveling team
