how we are and what measures we are taking

By now we are all aware of the affect that this pandemic has had worldwide. A lot of change has occurred rapidly all around us and because of this we have had to make a few adjustments this year for the safety of our community, the respect of our countries regulations and for the love to our families. We don't want to operate out of fear, but instead we want to be wise and prudent in our actions as we see the responsibility we have amongst our YWAM community and our local community.

We had to postpone our Spring and Summer schools and activities, and postpone many till the winter term or till the next year. For everyone who has been in correspondence with us and has had to deal with all the changes, we want to firstly apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. 

As a community we have put in line different and appropriate procedures to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers, trainees and visitors. We are respecting all government guidelines as much as possible in regards to social distancing and other health measures such as sanitised stations on our premises entrance. 

In the Uk we have gone through two lockdowns, and although they have been difficult and challenging, and the future is still unclear, we believe and have seen God work in our lives as a community and as individuals. This time has been fruitful in our eyes in widening our vision, renewing our strength and in opening new doors and bringing forth new opportunities for the for-seeing future.
