It is with sincere sadness that we need to announce that we were notified today by Gartmore House in Stirling, Scotland that they are forced to suspend all conference functions for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19 pandemic related staff shortages and slowed supply deliveries.
Moriel UK was looking forward to holding at least this one residential conference in 2021 on the 10th-12th of December, but Gartmore has had to cancel all conferences booked there. We could not be more disappointed and we express every regret to those who have registered.
The English conference is presently planned for May 2022 and we will of course hope to resume Scottish conferences in 2022. As most are aware, the British Government has again changed its policy regarding vaccine passports that prompted Moriel to cancel the scheduled conference in England 20-22 May, 2022 organised for Moriel by Peter & Beryl Hunter. (The Ministry of Health announced that vaccine passports will now NOT be mandated to attend conference events.)
We expect that this conference can go ahead as originally planned. Masks will be optional and only a free COVID-19 flow test available without charge at most pharmacies, chemists, and surgeries may be requested.
We realise that altering government policies by which we are bound are confusing and we are indeed apologetic.
We hope our brethren will be able to join us at the May conference for biblical exposition, fellowship, and The Lord's Supper.
