A note from Richard Coekin
‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble’ (Psalm 46:1)
I’m writing to let you know that in the challenging and ever-changing circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have sadly had to cancel REVIVE 2020. Inevitable as this decision has become, I know many will be hugely disappointed to miss out on the immense encouragement to our shared gospel mission in London that God gives us through meeting together at REVIVE.
I particularly want to thank the Co-Mission Resources Team and REVIVE board for the huge amount of work they have already poured into the event, as well as those who volunteered to serve on Team REVIVE. God-willing, REVIVE will bounce back better than ever in 2021.
Everyone who has booked already will be fully reimbursed – we will be emailing how to do so in the coming week. We will be providing an opportunity for anyone who is able and would like to contribute to help reduce the financial loss involved in cancelling REVIVE in due course. However, whilst this is a significant loss, in God’s kindness, the financial impact is not catastrophic.
The good news is that we’re beginning work on some exciting plans for our Co-Mission churches to celebrate ‘REVIVE Sunday’ on the 21st of June remotely rather than by being physically together in Canterbury. We will be publishing our initial plans for ‘REVIVE Sunday’ in the coming weeks.
We also plan to post messages of spiritual encouragement each week on Thursday throughout this season of pandemic (Here is the first of these: Letter of Spiritual Encouragement).
In all these changes and challenges, what a comfort it is to run to our loving heavenly Father in prayer – for he truly is ‘our refuge and strength’.
With much love in Christ,

What about REVIVE 2021
