Impact On Services
The Church of England has issued updated advice for services in relation to COVID-19.
For now services will not be open to the public. The ministry and mission of the Church of England will continue during the weeks and months ahead but in a different way. Worship will continue in our parish and churches but will not be open to the public, in line with Government guidelines on public gatherings.
We will update this page with how we intend to share opportunities to worship as one community remotely.
