We have recently been discussing the cancelling of a town-wide youth event which had a number of issues linked to it.  As we did this I found Josh’s post on Questions to Ask When You Cancel an Event really helpful.  He gives a number of questions to ask, including:

  • Did we incur any costs we cannot get back?
  • Have we clearly communicated every single student and parent about the cancellation?
  • Have we addressed follow-up questions that may have come in?
  • What are we doing in place of this event?
  • How will this decision affect other ministries in the church?
  • Are there any long term ramifications from this decision?
  • How can we avoid this situation in the future?
