COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Guidance


We have been continually monitoring the situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and are following advice and rule changes from the Government (https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus), as well as guidance from The Church of England (https://www.churchofengland.org/resources/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches). As we monitor these channels, we are taking the appropriate steps to ensure we are keeping in line with the advice and guidelines. As a result of the latest updates, we have put together a roadmap aiming for a progressive and practical return to the full life of the church while staying faithful to guidance from the Government and Church of England, you can see this below or by clicking here:
