Book for TF24

What is The Forge?

The Forge is a men’s event, held near Carshalton in Surrey. It’s a chance for us blokes to get together, share food, fun, and even talk to one another!

TF24 will run from 1pm on Saturday 14th Sept 2024, and will end on Sunday 15th at 1pm.

You can camp overnight, or just drop in for the weekend on each day.

It’s open to anyone over the age of 13, but we do ask for there to be a responsible adult around for anyone under 18!

The team come from churches based in the area and we’re running TF24 to show that following Jesus leads to the best life possible!
