Join the CAP Café team!

Excitement is brewing… because the CAP Café is back! We’ll be at the Big Church Day Out and New Wine this year, calling the (espresso) shots on UK poverty – could you be the key ingredient?

Join the team

Fancy having a ‘grande’ time while making a difference? Do you come alive in a fast paced, busy environment?

If you’re over 18 and can provide us with two references, we’d love you to join us!

Who are we looking for?

At CAP we pride ourselves on being fun, passionate, hard working and friendly, so we love to see these qualities in our volunteers! If you’re up for making a bunch of new friends and having a great laugh while serving notice (and coffee!) on UK poverty, then come and join us.

Why should I apply?

Serving on team means you’re representing CAP and all we stand for at one (or two) of the biggest Christian festivals in the UK. As part of a team of passionate volunteers, you’re going to have an amazing time whilst helping us stir up support in a friendly and relaxed environment.

You’ll also have plenty of time to attend some of the sessions, receiving world class teaching and sharing in incredible worship. On top of that, being part of a team means meeting some pretty great people and making a ‘latte’ of new friends.

If you join the CAP Café team, we’ll take care of:

  • Meals and drinks: we’ll provide food and drinks for you each day, keeping you hydrated and full of energy.
  • Free access to the event: if you’re volunteering with us, entry is completely free of charge.
  • A dedicated camping area: we have a camping area especially for our CAP Café team so you can continue building relationships and having fun when you’re not busy serving (although you’re welcome to camp with family, friends or your church group if you’d prefer).
  • Training: you’ll receive all the training you need for your role.

What would a typical day look like?

Because we want you to have the best experience, we’ve split each day into 2-3 hour shifts, meaning you’ll have plenty of time to relax, refresh and enjoy the event as well as getting the most out of your café experience

Big Church Day Out: 3 x 2 hour shifts each day over the weekend.

New Wine: 2 x 2-3 hour shifts each day throughout the week.

You’ll get to choose a role such as taking orders, making great coffee, pouring tea, keeping an eye on stock or handling payments – and we’ll teach you everything you need to know!

Arrival times:

We encourage all volunteers to arrive the day before the festival begins. This gives us plenty of time to give you some proper training and set up our stands ready for the next day.

Can't make it anymore?

We understand that in life, things happen, and we value the time you give us as a volunteer. If for any reason you can no longer join us after signing up, please let us know as soon as possible. We can make changes to our bookings up to a month before each festival.


Thank you so much for supporting us in the fight against poverty – you’re making a huge difference!
