Church Services & Events: Urgent Coronavirus Update

In light of the Government current recommendation regarding social distancing and non- essential contact to restrict the spread of coronavirus, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have now issued advice that all public worship is to be suspended until further notice.

All current scheduled church services will now cease with immediate effect and until further notice. This will also include services during Holy Week and the combined Rural Churches Together services.

In addition, all other church activities and events will not be taking place for the foreseeable future. This includes any children’s activities, coffee mornings, prayer meeting, study groups, choir practice, bell ringing etc.

A Morning Prayer service sheet will be available for home worship. Hard copies will be available in church, or can be sent out via email. Please contact Tracey, the Benefice Administrator.

We will continue to update you with any further news, but if you have any
queries please contact Anthony or Tracey – by phone or email only please.

Updated information will also be found on the individual church ‘A Church Near You’ websites or via social media.
