NETS Terms of Booking and Cancellation Policy

Statement on Restricted Services:

Ellel Ministries International exists to teach the principles and practice of Christianity so that Christians may be drawn into a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ. For an understanding of the Christian beliefs and ethos of Ellel Ministries International see “What we believe”. We are open to all who are seeking Jesus Christ and who wish to benefit from this ministry and who seek to use our services for this purpose. We reserve the right to not allow our services to be used in a way that is contrary to our Christian beliefs and ethos (and therefore potentially harmful to those our ministry seeks to help).

House Rules:

To avoid conflict with our ministry purposes and our Christian beliefs and for the safe-guarding, comfort and spiritual welfare of our other guests and the team, the following are not permitted at Ellel Ministries centres:

  • Alcohol, recreational drugs or any form of substance abuse. Smoking (including e-cigarettes) is only permitted outside, in designated places.
  • Verbal abuse or aggressive behaviour.
  • Sexual intimacy between two people of the same sex.
  • Sexual intimacy outside marriage/civil partnership.
  • Sharing of a bedroom where the occupants are (or intend to be) in a sexually intimate relationship with each other and they are not a married couple/not in a civil partnership.
  • Sharing of a bedroom where the occupants are (or intend to be) in a sexually intimate relationship with each other and they are of the same sex.
  • Inappropriate or excessive public displays of sexual intimacy or affection.
  • Pornographic material, including online access.
  • Religious practices (including occult) that are not consistent with our Christian beliefs and ethos.

If you are unsure whether something may fall outside activity permitted at our centres, please seek guidance beforehand from the relevant centre.

For further information on the Christian beliefs and ethos of Ellel Ministries International, including our understanding of marriage, see “What We Believe” and our statement of faith.

  1. We reserve the right not to accept your application.
  2. Application Fee Refund Policy: The Application Fee is non-refundable in all circumstances.
  3. Accommodation: We cannot guarantee that you will be assigned the accommodation that you have requested. If the accommodation you have requested is not available, we will contact you to discuss other options. You will only be charged for the accommodation you have actually been assigned.
  4. Use of Electronic Equipment: Please note that guests using any of their own portable electronic devices, including items such as lap top computers, chargers and hair dryers, do so entirely at their own risk. Ellel Ministries will not in any way be held responsible for any loss of, or damage to, or injury or damage resulting from, the use of such items. The electricity supply in the UK runs at 230 volts. Please note that we do not allow the use of personal heaters at Pierrepont.

If you do have specific dietary needs, then you will need to be prepared to make your own arrangements to supplement your meals. We cannot guarantee access to a kitchen.
  6. Evaluation: Ellel Ministries has an obligation to both the individual and the community as a whole.  Should anyone’s actions or responses become a disruption to either the training programme or community life, then, for the sake of the community, Ellel Ministries reserves the right to ask that person to leave Pierrepont.  Furthermore, if Pierrepont Leadership in its reasonable discretion considers that it would not be of benefit for a person to continue their NETS journey for any reason, we reserve the right to ask the person to leave.
  7. Continuing onto the next stage of NETS: If your application is successful, you will be accepted onto the stage of NETS which you have applied for. For those who wish to continue onto subsequent stages of NETS, the suitability of continuing forward will be assessed for each trainee.
  8. You may be required to leave Pierrepont and return home if you lie, deceive, or otherwise fail to disclose any information in this application which we may deem to be relevant for any reason whatsoever.
  9. Discontinuation: Where a NETS trainee is requested by Pierrepont Leadership to leave, any refunds shall be considered on a case-by-case basis and shall in no event exceed a pro-rata discount based on the number of weeks remaining for the NETS stage.
