COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Guidance


We have been closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and, following advice from Public Health England (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/public-health-england) and the Church of England (https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches). We are taking appropriate steps to ensure we are keeping in line with this advice and the advice released by the Government. As a result our Archbishops’ have made it clear that all public worship will have to stop for a season; our usual pattern of Sunday services and other mid-week gatherings must be put on hold.
