Dear New Wine Family, 

We know that like us, you have been so looking forward to joining together for our Sligo Summer Conference this year. 

However, with the ongoing situation and challenges relating to Covid-19, we have come to the very difficult but inevitable realisation, that our Sligo Conference this July 2021 cannot go ahead. 

This is not the announcement that we wanted to make and we have been reviewing the situation and planning for July, with hope that it would be possible, but unfortunately it has become increasingly obvious to us that we cannot safely run the conference that we all know and love this summer. 

We know that although this might not come as a shock, it will be disappointing for you and so we want to let you know that we have been planning for this eventuality and are currently bringing plans together for a New Wine Summer Conference Online. We are looking forward to sharing those plans with you and hope to do so before the end of this month. 

If you have already booked for Sligo21, we will contact you with more information in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we ask that you would please be patient with us as we navigate the continuing challenges of event planning at this time. 

We would like to thank you so much for your continued generosity, support and prayers over what has been a difficult year for us all. We may not be able to meet as planned, but we look forward to joining with you online and look forward to sharing more details with you soon.

David McClay, Simon Genoe & Hilary McClay
