Latest updates regarding COVID-19

Published on 19th March 2021 by

Light at the end of the tunnel! 

As you will all be aware, the government has now cautiously laid out a roadmap for the easing of the lockdown restrictions. It certainly feels like the end is in sight and there is a renewed sense of hope that there will be a return to some kind of normality as we progress through this year! Thanks to your generosity over the last 12 months Sizewell Hall is still here and operating, ready to welcome you here once again.

As you may expect we are now making plans for a staged reopening of the accommodation here. As you will see in the sections below, we are now taking bookings for our campsite, cottage and bungalow. We will also be providing an update soon on our plans for reopening the Hall once it is safe to do so. We can’t wait to once again hear voices of worship and fellowship flowing through the hall!

Campsite Bookings

We are excited to now be able to take bookings for our campsite! It’s a great way to have a beachside holiday in 2021, with amazing grounds and picturesque walks! We will be opening our campsite from the following dates:

Fri 16th April 2021
Only for Caravans and Motorhomes with their own toilet and shower facilities

Fri 21st May 2021
For Tents, Caravans and Motorhomes with the shared campsite toilet and shower facilities open

These dates are subject to change, depending on government roadmap alterations

Cottage and Bungalow Bookings

We are excited to now be able to take bookings for our cottage and bungalow here on site. They are both great value ways to still have a beachside holiday in 2021, with amazing grounds and picturesque walks right on your doorstep!

We are now taking bookings from 12th April onwards, as this is the date for the reopening of small, self-catered accommodation that has been laid out in the government’s roadmap. However, please be aware that this date may move as the government assesses the impact of the vaccination program and the easing of other lockdown restrictions.

If you would like to hear more information about this opportunity, please contact our Bookings coordinator Chris –

Hall Cancellation Policy for 2021

In light of the above projections and as we move into a period where churches/groups may have to cancel for the second year in a row, we wanted to clarify our cancellation policy for 2021.

There will be no minimum charge for groups/churches who have to cancel due to the following COVID-19 related reasons:
– Government regulations forbid large gatherings/conferences
– The Church/Group is uncertain about whether they are able to visit due to the pandemic
– The Church/Group doesn’t have enough people booked or interested in attending due to the pandemic

We understand the uncertainty that groups and individuals may have in booking, but we would encourage groups to book, recognising that the financial risk of cancellation is reduced.

We are very grateful to all the groups and churches who chose to make a donation despite having to cancel their booking in 2020. If your group is in a position to make a donation towards the cost of any cancelled weekend in 2021 this would be greatly appreciated. However, we understand that the finances of groups and churches will have also been impacted by the pandemic. Of course, our preference would be for you to come to the Hall if you can.

Stay up to date!

We will continue to update people on our situation via social media and our newsletter. You can sign up to read our newsletter at the bottom of this page, alternatively, you can click the following links to follow our social media pages.

We are so very grateful for the incredible amount of support we received from you in 2020. Since we released our November newsletter, we have raised just over £60,000 to ensure we can remain in operation through to July. Thank you for your amazing generosity, prayers and messages of support! We have entered 2021 with optimism about the future and we hope that the end of heavy restrictions is in sight. However, while we live with lockdowns and restrictions, the long term future of Sizewell Hall remains uncertain.
