The Principal's Statement regarding the coronavirus outbreak

COVID-19 update, 18 March 2020

"Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you."  Deuteronomy 31:6

Following recent UK government advice regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure you we are doing all we can to ensure your interactions with All Nations will not be greatly affected.

In adhering to the advice being given nationally, we have taken the decision to enable as many of our staff team to work remotely from home as possible to play our part in reducing the spread of the virus and protecting the vulnerable. However, we will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum. This means we will continue to prepare and run our training programmes, process donations and make payments.

With students from all round the world, we have been helping many travel home for the Easter vacation. Many others have remained here and are staying in the UK, some on site. We have some staff also living on site and we thank God for such a beautiful and spacious location to live in.

Although all on site conferences and gatherings over the Easter break have been cancelled or postponed, our ministry here as the global community of All Nations does carry on and continues to need your prayer and support. Everything has begun changing globally and this gives us all opportunities to be creative as you engage with us and as we support you in mobilising global mission, whether on our doorsteps or far beyond, whether online or on location. We remain fully working by e-mail, phone and online communications. Please continue to be in contact with us.

With the fluidity of the situation, you will appreciate we may have to adapt further and change in the coming days. We therefore ask you to extend grace to us if we are unable to respond to you or send information out as quickly as normal. We also ask you to promote the opportunities available to everyone everywhere to engage in equipping for cross-cultural mission. Our training courses will be even more accessible in the coming months and we would love to welcome many more students, whether online or on site.

In Jesus’ Name,


Andy Dipper
