Team FAQsWhen will I hear about my application?
Applications are considered at various points during the year and not on a first-come first-served basis. The result of your application will be displayed on your online account as soon as possible once both references have been received.
Once the team leader has looked at your application and references, and is happy to accept you on to the team, you'll receive further communication from them with instructions about training days and expectations about your team role.Is my team place guaranteed?
Team places are not guaranteed, as they are limited and leaders need to consider each application to ensure that each team has the right balance of experience and ability. If you are not successful in your first choice of team, we will do our best to find you a place in another suitable team.When do team volunteers need to arrive?
All team members must arrive on site the day before the week begins. All details will be provided by your team leaders, and if you cannot arrive early you must let them know as soon as possible as this may affect your team application.

Some teams require you to undergo a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check (previously the Criminal Records Bureau). If this is a requirement for the team you have applied for, you will receive instructions from us by email. Download the list of offences which will never be filtered from a criminal record check.
Expectation for team members
Those who volunteer for New Wine teams at United do so based on their Christian profession and way of life. As a team volunteer, your conduct on site is expected to be consistent with New Wine's ethos and understanding of the teaching of the New Testament.
Part of New Wine’s ethos is our adherence to the Evangelical Alliance (EA) basis of faith and in submitting your team application you are acknowledging your acceptance to do the same.
