Light at the end of the tunnel! 

We are quickly approaching the reopening of the Hall and we are due to have our first group arriving at the hall on the 19th of July.

Campsite Bookings

As you may already be aware, Suffolk Christian Camps have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s summer camps. Our partnership with Suffolk Christian Camps is a vital part of the work here at Sizewell Hall and we share in the disappointment that for a second year the camps won’t be making use of our campsite this summer. Please join us in praying for Suffolk Christian Camps and the many attendees of the camps as they process the cancellation.

As you might imagine we are very keen to still use the campsite this summer to give people a chance to get away for a time of fellowship and connecting with God.

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!

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.
