Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For the current national lockdown notices regarding services will be shown here.  Although government advice permits services, local decisions are being made as to whether they can take place safely in our churches. 

We resumed our in-place services for Holy Week and are continuing to hold one in place Sunday service in the benefice each week.  Please refer to our services calendar for details.

Coronavirus restrictions permitting, one service will take place on a Sunday morning in the benefice (see calendar download), according to Rota A.  'Rota B' shows arrangements for when this is not possible.  Online services Take Place via Zoom at 10am on Thursday and 6:30pm on Sunday.  Please contact Fr John or Fr David ( or use the Contact Us facility) for login details for online services.

We are currently reviewing what COVID-Secure requirements we are able to meet and our risk assessments for opening  church buildings in the benefice for private prayer.  It is anticipated we will be opening our church buildings for private prayer during Holy Week.

All of the churches in the benefice are keeping an eye on developments, and hope to open as the lockdown continues to ease - please check back here for more information.

Please be assured of our love and prayers at this time.
