If you popped in to the Free Church Offices on the Mound in November of any other year, you’d probably find the Camps Coordinator sitting at the computer looking over designs and blurbs and final drafts from the designer of the FCYC brochure for the following year. If you dropped by at the start of December, you’d be handed an envelope and asked to pack some brochures ready for posting! But this year, in true 2020 style, things are a little different…
FCYC have made the decision not to print any brochures this year. Instead, they're working behind the scenes to get the FCYC website ready for a slightly later launch than usual. In the meantime, they're keeping the coronavirus situation and its impact on camps under review. Their plan is to work with the other boards in the church, taking the best available advice, and to come to a decision by the end of January on whether they think camps will be able to go ahead in summer 2021.
If camps are going ahead, bookings will open at the end of January, when they’ll also launch the website update with all the information you need to know about FCYC 2021! The Allocation Day will take place at the end of February. It’ll be an exciting year, with two new camps on offer as well as plenty of the classics!
Please pray for wisdom and discernment for those who are making difficult decisions in the midst of so much uncertainty, and give thanks that in all of this, God has a plan.
