Watch parties | City Bible Forum

Don’t miss out on one of the things that makes Life@Work Conference great - connecting with others! Either host your own, or join a Watch Party, either in a home or a local church - there is a ticket discount if you do!

Join a public watch party

The churches listed in the drop down menus are open to guests joining their Watch Party. Browse to see if there is one near you, and simply select their name when you register for the conference.

Join a watch party I've been invited to

Attending a Watch Party at a church or home? Simply select the “Watch Party attendee” option when you register - it’s as simple as that! If you are attending a church Watch Party please be sure to select that church when you register.

NOTE: When you register for a church Watch Party we will be providing your email address to the church so they can contact you should they have any specific details they wish to share.

Host my own watch party

We want to make hosting a Watch Party really easy for you (and lots of fun!). Below are the four simple steps to follow.

1. Register as a host

The first thing to do is register yourself as a host, simply by selecting that option on our registration page. Make sure you leave your postal address so that we can send you your...

2. Host Pack

All hosts who register prior to midnight Sunday 6 February will be sent a host pack. Included in that pack are posters and balloons to decorate your venue. If you don’t register before that date (or would like additional posters) you can download the following e-versions here:

You can also read additional support for hosts HERE.

3. Invite your friends or church members

We want to make it really easy for you to get the word out to your friends or church members about your Watch Party. Below are some ways to do that:

When you invite people to register for your Watch Party please encourage them to select the “Watch Party attendee” option. And if you are a church hosting please remind them to also select your church as their venue. This is to ensure that we can give you accurate attendance numbers prior to the conference (on both February 8 and 17 we will send you a list of all those who have registered from your church, plus email addresses, so that you know how many people to expect on the day, and can contact them if you wish to share any additional information). A reminder, all attendees will be receiving their conference e-booklet so you don’t have to do any printing or anything else to get them ready for the day!

4. Decide what to eat together!

Between the two sessions we won’t be planning any activities or discussion during that hour - we want you to relax with your guests and enjoy the social time. What you eat together we'll leave to you to plan so it can be just how you like it! The main thing is we want you to enjoy the day (while keeping COVID-safe).
