The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings are closed until further notice.
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done by gathering in a building. Please see our website and Facebook group for details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study and community life.
Funerals will continue within official guidelines and we will provide support and advice to bereaved families and work closely with Funeral Directors and other authorities.
Weddings and Christenings are suspended until the restrictions are able to be lifted.
