Coronavirus updates

Last updated: 31st March 2020

With thousands of children, young people, volunteers and parents/carers interacting with us, we wanted to reassure all those involved with Urban Saints that we are taking this matter very seriously and making appropriate plans. In everything by Prayer. Whatever the circumstances, we can demonstrate to others how our outlook is so different with Christ.

In response to the instruction of the Prime Minister on 23rd March, the following arrangements should now be in place:

Groups

It is with great regret that all Urban Saints Groups and Energize Plus Groups must suspend face-to-face meetings with immediate effect until otherwise advised. We hope and pray that this virus passes quickly and we can get back to meeting together soon.

Camps

Sprees will not be running in 2020.

Easter and Whit Camps will not be running. All other Summer Camps will go ahead as planned, subject to further guidance. 

Urban Saints Westbrook

In response to the Government instruction to close all schools from Friday 20th March, Jo Baynham (Westbrook Centre Manager) will shortly be in touch with all schools holding bookings from now until the 1st May 2020.

All other bookings until 1st May 2020 are postponed.

At this time, bookings after 1st May 2020 should go ahead as planned, subject to further guidance.

Overseas Adventures

All Overseas Adventures are now postponed.
