How it works
ASSIGN A GROUP LEADER
The group leader’s only responsibility is setting up the group. There’s no risk or commitment – all group members can invite to a group once it’s set up. We’ll need your email, and that’s it!
INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
After creating your group, simply start inviting your friends, family, neighbours, and everyone you can think of to join the fun, using a special group link. ALL group members are responsible for inviting, to make the group as big (and the tickets as cheap) as possible.
BOOK YOUR TICKETS
Finally, book your tickets and keep inviting! Don’t worry, each person orders their own ticket and payment is not taken until midnight on the group closing date. (Usually the Monday before the event). This means you have until then to populate your group to bring your ticket costs down!
TIPS TO GROW YOUR GROUP
GET AHEAD OF THE GAME
SHARE THE LOVE
Everyone can come as part of a group. Still not sure where you fit? Click on the options below:
What is Group Plus?
We know how hard Group Leaders work to get their groups to Big Church Festival. It’s hard work keeping track of who you’ve invited and what they’ve ordered, chasing people for payments and even the most advanced spreadsheet is tested to the limit. So we got creative and came up with Group Plus. Group Plus is an innovative tool that allows you to manage your Group online. From the initial invite through to payment, the whole process can be managed by Group Plus!
Can I amend my order in Group Plus?
Unfortunately, you are unable to amend your order in Group Plus.
However, you can cancel your order before your group deadline by logging into your Big Church Festival account on our website. You will then need to go into your recent orders and click on ‘Cancel Order’. Please note you must cancel before your group deadline.
You will then need to re-book in your Group the correct tickets.
Do all of my Group members have to book the same ticket in order to benefit from the Group discount?
Group members do not have to all purchase the exact same ticket to benefit from the Group discount. There can be a mixture of different tickets under the same booking.
Please note: Under 5’s and carers are not accounted for within the Group discount.
Can you add an individual’s order to Group Plus if they didn’t book via the group?
We can assign an individual’s order to a group so their order can be seen within the group, however, due to payment already being taken they will be unable to receive the group discount.
Please email [email protected] with your order number and group name if you would like us to assign your order to a group.
When will my payment be taken on Group Plus?
As your Group grows, the price of each ticket will automatically drop. You will be sent an email after you have reached each group price break.
You will be sent your e-ticket after your payment has been taken on your Group deadline date.
Please note that the Group Leader can amend the Group deadline date at any point. We recommend leaving your Group open as long as possible in order to get the maximum people in your Group and the cheapest price!
We know there are often people contacting the Group leader after the deadline wanting to still book on, if this is the case they will be able to still book on after the deadline at the price the group closed on e.g. if your group closed on the 100+ rate people will still be able to book at the 100+ rate after the deadline has passed.
Do I have to put in my card details as a Group Leader?
If a member of your Group has their card declined when payments are taken on the Group closing date, the Group Leaders card is used to pay for their ticket. This ensures that the Group member still receives their ticket to the event.
We are now giving Group Leader’s the option in the “settings” tab to opt out of this function, if this is something the Group Leader doesn’t want.
What happens to my Group if I don’t reach 10 people?
If the number of members within a Group does not reach the minimum of 10 (the first Group price discount) then each member of the Group will be charged the full price for their ticket at the time of their booking. This means that Group members will still receive the super early bird, early bird, or saver discount if they booked their tickets within those allotted price breaks.
How do I invite people to my Group?
Group Plus will generate a unique link that you will be able to share from your own email or social media accounts with those you wish to invite to your Group.
This link can be found in the “invites” tab in your Group Plus account.
The people you have invited then click this link to book their tickets and come as part of your discounted Group to Big Church Festival.
Can people book onto my group once it has closed?
By default your group will still allow new bookings after the registration deadline, right up until online sales close at midnight on your deadline date. Any last minute bookings will be charged at the group registration closing rate. If the group leader wishes to not allow late bookers after the group registration deadline they will need to make sure the setting is on in the group settings.
