Postponement of the Gospelkirchentag 2020 in Hanover
With the health and safety of the gospel community in mind, the Gospelkirchentag is announcing the postponement of the Gospelkirchentag 2020 in Hannover due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, Germany has banned all mass events until after 31 August 2020 but big events are sure to be banned for longer. Moreover, as the case stands it is unlikely that the most important parts of the Gospelkirchentag, like the mass choir practice will be possible and international guests and artists will not be able to travel and attend the festival. By postponing the event we can make sure that you can attend safely and without travel restrictions.
We are glad to say: Gospelkirchentag is not cancelled. We were able to move the whole event to 2021 – with all artists and all teachers. Mass choir practices, festival service and gospel night: it is all happening in the beautiful city of Hannover.
Save the date for the 10th Gospelkirchentag: 17 to 19 September 2021 in Hannover!
What do you have to do now? – If you have registered already: you don’t have to do anything! Your registration is still valid, whether you registered individually or with your choir; whether or not you were set to perform, the registration is valid. However, if something has changed for you or your choir, please send a message to service(at)creative-kirche.de .
We do not take this step of postponing lightly because we care deeply about the Gospelkirchentag. We cannot wait to celebrate this festival of music and faith with you in 2021. The Gospelkirchentag, including all its artists and teachers, took a big financial hit in this corona-induced crisis, which is why we would be delighted if you could support us. How? Please, come to the festival in 2021. Do not cancel your registration – that is all the support the artists and festival organizers need.
The day will come when we can sing together again; the day when our songs can bring joy to the people again; the day when can give friends a hug. With God’s help this will happen in Hannover in September 2021.
We are so excited to see you there!
Please save the date for 12 September 2020 anyway. We are planning an online event for choirs. We will keep you informed about the details.
