Information correct as of Tuesday 17th March 2020.
It is with great sadness and disappointment that we have to announce that due to the current UK epidemic of coronavirus and recent government advice, the Big Church Day Out 2020 has been cancelled. BCDO will gather again on May 29-30th 2021.
This has never been the outcome that any of us would have wanted. We are completely gutted. We had the most amazing dreams and plans for this May and such a vision of bringing the church together again.
This leaves us in the most precarious financial position with the cancellation costing BCDO more than £500,000. We spend all year paying our full time staff team, marketing the event, incurring operational costs for the charity, and many other expenses that are now unrecoverable. Our insurance policies do not cover these extraordinary circumstances.
If you have purchased a BCDO 2020 ticket you will have received an email explaining what happens next.
This now presents to all of us the opportunity to demonstrate BCDO’s greatest moment of unity, and stand together at this time to create incredible possibilities for thousands of lives for many more years to come.
I know that almost everyone will be affected by the impact of coronavirus, and we are praying for you in these difficult times. Please pray for our team and all involved, as we navigate our way through this and work towards an amazing future for us all at the Big Church Day Out.
If you would like to donate towards our unexpected cancellation costs and help secure the future of BCDO, any amount would be gratefully received - DONATE HERE.
If you have further questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to respond to you within 10 working days.
We will continue to post any updates here as things develop over the coming weeks.
Above all, please continue to pray.
From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart goes faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:2
