EASA Summer Conference - Edinburgh 

Due to Covid-19 coronavirus and following discussions at our very successful Spring Conference in Nottingham, sadly the Summer Conference planned for 26th to 28th June 2020 in Edinburgh is now postponed.

We shall continue to monitor national events as they develop, but it now seems unlikely that we shall have a firm steer for a way forward for some time. The EASA committee will be reviewing matters, electronically, and will be looking at what can be achieved as events unfold. We do not want to cancel the conference given the work already done and will be consulting all the relevant parties to see what we can do to move it to the a future date, possibly next year.

COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) Update 18th May 2020

This is our seventh short note dedicated to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

1. The Government has set up a task force developing plans to re-open places of worship, and a press release is available following the first meeting. You can find out more on our website at http://www.hrballiance.org.uk/coronavirus/ (scroll down to News).

2. The deadline for completing the National Churches Trust survey on the impact of Coronavirus is Monday, 25 May. You can find this on our website at http://www.hrballiance.org.uk/coronavirus/ (scroll down to Calls for Evidence).

3. When places of worship re-open, some people may wish to make a cash donation which they have built up over the preceding weeks. This may take them over the standard £30 pounds limit of the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme. The Churches' Legislation Advisory Service has asked HMRC about this, and a potential solution has been found. This may need some prior explanation to donors. You can find out more on our website at http://www.hrballiance.org.uk/coronavirus/ (scroll down to News).
