January is all about family and fun and chill time and … festival! There’s no better start to the year than heading off to New Wine for 5 fun filled days to celebrate this wild Christian life.
The youth will party, the kids will play, the adults will relax but whatever your age we’ll be worshipping, learning and connecting with God again.
Like every good party everyone’s invited.

Join us at New Wine. An all age festival where many voices worship the One.

Getting to New Wine can be financially difficult for some. Christians have a hallmark of sharing each other’s burdens. We have created the GRACE BOX as a means of sharing that hallmark of generosity.

If you would like to add money into the Grace Box include it in your registration (a donation receipt will be issued at financial year end).

If you require financial assistance register for the festival and, complete an online Subsidy Application Form or call the New Wine office on 0800 639 9463.


Want that stellar community feel, but bolstered with life’s little luxuries like actual walls and nearby toilets? We’ve got the dorm for you! Its located right next to the camping field, far enough away from the excitement to get some good shut eye but so close you can see the fun unfolding as you make your bed in the morning! We told you the Wairarapa had it all and here’s some of the proof.

There are different types of dorms available: families, no kids, male, female… Let us know which option you would prefer when you register – it’s first in first served, so don’t dilly dally folks!

Pricing is a simple pass-it-on policy; we’ll let you know when these prices are announced for 2024. Using a travel cot for the really littlies is a dorm freebie (but only with accompanying adults).


Create your own campsite – pitch your tent, park your van, pamper your glampsite. Your festival campsite is included free in your registration. It’s such an awesome opportunity to connect with each other in a super relaxed kiwi kind-of-way. So good for families, youth groups and church whānau. And of course this year we’ll bask in Wairarapa’s incredible weather!


Of course New Wine has always allowed you to blaze your own accommodation trail. There are plenty of accommodation options available, including airbnb and bookabach. But book early!

The dorm hostel accommodation should not be confused with hotel accommodation.  The cubicles are single beds only, some with 2 beds and some with 1. Dorm accommodation is inclusive of a bottom sheet only, no other bedding, towels or toiletries. New Wine will endeavour to take all accommodation needs into account when allocating dorms, but cannot guarantee to meet all requests.
The New Wine camp site is conveniently located on the Wairarapa College sports fields. The college has a strict no wheels on fields policy.

New Wine Masterton commences on Thursday at 12pm and finishes at 1.30pm on Monday

7.00am Early morning exercise
9.00am  Morning sessions in zones (until 12.15pm with morning tea in between)
