KUC Summer Conference 2020 Update (2020/07/01)
We're pleased to announce that KUC Summer Conference is happening! (As best we can say - Proverbs 16:9)
Refresh Conference will be held on Fri 7 ~ Wed 12 August 2020, with a few changes to our usual plans.
As long as there is no resurgence of Covid-19 across Japan, no reinstating of the state of emergency, and prefectural governments are allowing travel across borders, we will hold the conference as planned for those residing in Japan. Due to the nature of international travel and relationships we have asked all of our international guests (speaker, kids workers, and attendees) not to come this year even if travel restrictions are lifted. We ask this out of courtesy for the local community in Karuizawa, many of whom feel anxious about the global situation, and out of love that the church would serve the interests of the community first before our own desires.
While we will greatly miss our international friends and guests, we are encouraged that our speaker, Rev Karl Peterson, kids workers, and tech support have all agreed to postpone their attendance to 2021.
So for this year's conference we're excited to announce that we'll be hearing God's Word brought to us by two of our very own KUC regulars. As usual, we'll also run the exciting kids and youth programs, lunches, night events and the KUC Annual Business Meeting (Monday 10 August). We will be complying with local government recommendations to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19 and ask that attendees wear masks and comply with requirements such as temperature checks and social distancing.
Attendance is free, but to help us in our planning please register here.
