Our churches are alive and active,
but we’re operating cautiously,
and with some restrictions.
Keep us, good Lord,A prayer for all those affected by COVID-19, Church of England
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Here is the latest guidance in full from the Church of England.
Things vary a bit by each church across the benefice, but:
- In general, our churches are open midweek for private prayer;
- Churches are open for Sunday worship, respecting distancing and hygiene requirements;
- Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals can all go ahead, within the limitations set out by government.
Please do not attend a church if you have a fever, a new persistent cough or a recent loss of taste or smell. If you do attend, please follow all guidance on sanitising, masks and safe movement.
