The team behind Christian conference Spring Harvest say they do not intend to cancel the event unless directed to by the authorities.
Thousands are expected to gather at sites in Harrogate, Minehead and Skegness from 4th-18th April where they'll be addressed by a host of speakers including Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu, Soul Survivor's Mike Pilavachi and Gavin Calver of the Evangelical Alliance.
Organisers Essential Christian said it was monitoring the situation daily along with senior managers at Butlin's and Harrogate International Centre.
In a statement, group chief executive Peter Martin, said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the coronavirus, COVID-19, around the world. The team at Spring Harvest are continuing to closely monitor the outbreak and are taking appropriate steps to ensure we keep our team, volunteers and those attending our events as safe as possible. We are deep in prayer about this situation and we ask that you would please stand with us in prayer too.
"In line with the latest government advice, we continue to plan for Spring Harvest 2020 to go ahead. We do not intend to cancel Spring Harvest unless directed to by the authorities; the most recent government statement has clarified that the cancellation of large events would not be of benefit at the current time."
While guests won't be given daily updates in the run up to event, if the situation changes they will be informed
Essential Christian says it will take any action to ensure the safety and comfort of all guests.
It's asking Christians to avoid unhelpful speculation, criticism and negativity on social media.
Sprint Harvest was founded in 1979 as a family conference to "equip the Church for action". Those attending take part in Bible study, worship and workshops.
