Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for parishes

Published on: 30th March 2020

The very latest advice and informaiton can be found on the Church of England website: Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for parishes

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 23rd March, the Archbishops have written to clergy in support of the measures and again on 27 March, requiring that churches must now close both for private worship and public services.

Our church buildings are therefore now closed for public worship, private prayer and all other meetings and activities except for vital community services until further notice.

We are aware this is a very difficult time and will prompt a number of further questions. The FAQs on the Church of England's Site will be regularly updated, so please do keep checking back. When major changes are made we will publish updated through the national Church’s social media accounts.
