Organisers of one of the UK's biggest Christian festivals, Spring Harvest, have cancelled one of their events this year because of a lack of bookings. 

In a statement on their website organisers say they've taken the "incredibly difficult decision" to cancel the event in Harrogate which was due to be held in April. 

Spring Harvest's two largest events - in Minehead and Skegness - will still go ahead.  

The festivals in April, attract thousands of worshippers but haven't taken place for three years because of the pandemic.

Commenting on cancelling the Harrogate event, Phil Loose, CEO of Essential Christian and Spring Harvest said, “It was with great sadness that we had to cancel. However, we have invited everyone that had already booked in to come to Spring Harvest at Skegness and Minehead.”

“The big news is that 2022 is the year in which we come back! We’re so excited to see our guests again in person. We have so many incredible Bible teachers and worship leaders joining us at both Skegness and Minehead. It’s going to be such a powerful time of worship, learning and laughing together as one big church family.”

Spring Harvest is inter-denominational gathering which was started in 1979. Its stated aims are to '"equip the Church for action" through a range of events, conferences, books, Bible study and worship music.
