Closure of the Hall

In light of the government’s latest advice and restrictions, and for the wellbeing of our staff and guests, we have taken the decision to extend the closure of the Hall through until the end of August. We will review this decision regularly and either extend the closure or re-open in the coming months, depending on the situation and the current advice from the government. We will be as accommodating as we can regarding your bookings; we will work through this situation with you and be as supportive as possible. The decision has also been made to furlough a portion of the staff team for a few weeks. While some of our staff are on furlough, please be aware that for some queries, there may be a delay in our response. If your query is more urgent, please contact office@sizewellhall.org.uk or call us on 01728 830715, so that one of the remaining members of staff can answer your query as soon as possible.

Bungalow and Cottage

In more exciting news, we are looking to hopefully reopen the Bungalow and Cottage from the 6th July for visitors, however, this will be dependent on us being able to do so safely and the upcoming government advice on the hospitality sector. Both the Bungalow and Cottage do have existing bookings in place that we hope to be able to fulfil, but we do have some spaces available. If you are interested in the possibility of staying in the Bungalow or Cottage then please contact us at bookings@sizewellhall.org.uk. Please be aware that our Bookings Co-ordinator is currently on furlough so there may be some delay in our response.

A unique opportunity

We are also in the early stages of exploring the possibility of opening up the campsite here at Sizewell Hall over the summer period, with the potential to continue into Autumn. Initially, there would be 10 pitches with electrical hook-ups available for caravans and motorhomes with their own washing and toilet facilities. We intend to keep the public toilets and showers closed for your safety during this initial phase. We will then assess the potential for allowing tents as part of a second phase, depending on government guidelines on public washing and toilet facilities. This would be a unique opportunity that we haven’t ever been able to offer before, as well as being a great way for you to help us fundraise. We are very excited about the possibility of welcoming some of you here once again. However, this will all be subject to government advice and our own ability to provide everything needed for your safety while staying with us. If you are interested in the possibility of staying at the campsite please contact us at office@sizewellhall.org.uk or call us on 01728 830715. This will allow us to gauge interest in this opportunity and keep you up to date with our plans.

Impact on Sizewell Hall

The potential opening of the Bungalow, Cottage and Campsite could provide some much-needed income for the hall, but we ask that you pray for us as an organisation as we seek God’s will in this matter and assess the viability of opening parts of the site. All of us are facing very uncertain times at the moment, but fortunately, we have a Lord who stands alongside us through all these challenges and who holds our future in His hands.

This crisis has the potential to have a very considerable financial impact on Sizewell Hall, as it has on many individuals, organisations and businesses. Consequently, we are asking all the groups who have enjoyed the blessing of coming away here to spend time with the Lord and with one another, to consider supporting us in their prayers and through financial support.
