When we launched United 21 in July, we promised to keep you fully informed about our plans as they progress.
This message from our National Leader, Paul Harcourt, brings you up to speed:
In summary, we cannot hold our United A and B events safely and legally for our normal numbers of around 11,000 – 12,000, as originally planned for the summer of 2021.
We haven’t taken this decision lightly and have prayed, discerned and applied our best wisdom as we have wrestled with this together and liaised with the events industry and other Christian festivals and events.
Making this decision now does enable us to concentrate on delivering an awesome alternative option, and we can confirm that we will be running a 6-day digital United event from Thursday 29 July – Tuesday 3 August 2021.
As we don’t want to close the door on physically gathering next summer unless we absolutely must, we are also trying to find another way to be together in person, even if in limited numbers.
The following blog provides full details on the decisions we have taken and why, what this means for existing bookings, and plans and possibilities for 2021.
For those who have already booked for United 21, we want to thank you for your faithfulness. The blog lays out how we will do this. Please rest assured that you don’t need to make any decisions or take any action before early spring 2021, when you will have all the info you need to do so.
This decision does not affect our new Sixty One venture that we are partnering with Fusion to launch, which is a more targeted event of a different scale. Planning for Sixty One currently continues as planned and is on track. Find out more at sixtyone.space.
