Thank you for your interest in WhitCamp 2020.
We have had to take the difficult decision to cancel WhitCamp 2020 which was planned for the May half term break.
WhitCamp leadership team has worked closely with Urban Saints (US) to understand our response to the Covid19 pandemic. Following the latest Government guidelines of 17th March 2020, US have announced the suspension of all Groups and the cancellation of Camps at Easter and during the May half term – and this includes WhitCamp 2020.
We are contacting those who have already booked to inform them of the cancellation and refund deposits and fees.
As followers of Jesus, we have much to do to both pray and serve Him in our church and local communities. There are a great many things that we can bring before the Lord at this time. Let us in particular uphold our friends at the camp location of Ballingham Court Farm in recovery from the severe flooding.
We do believe that events like WhitCamp have been and will continue to be greatly blessed by the Lord. We are therefore continuing to consider how best to continue WhitCamp in future years, and will communicate our ideas in due course. For details on other Urban Saints events, please refer to the US website https://www.urbansaints.org/news
In Psalm 121 the psalmist asks: “Where does my help come from?”, to which the answer comes “My help comes from the Lord the maker of heaven and earth”. May we know God’s presence with us through these unprecedented times.
