CORONAVIRUS and the CHURCH

We are following the latest advice from the Church of England , from the Government and from the NHS, all of which have a lot of useful information and are updated regularly.

JOINING IN WORSHIP AND PRAYER IN OTHER WAYS  

Sadly, since Tuesday 17 March,  all public worship in churches was suspended until further notice.  This means that there will be no public services at St Mary's on Sundays or weekdays.

On Monday 23 March it was announced that churches must remain closed during the day. 

It was later announced that even clergy are not permitted to enter their churches for worship or private prayer.  This restriction was lifted on Wednesday 6 May and now one member of clergy may enter the church.

Despite no public worship, there are ways in which you can join in prayer and worship

Clap for our Carers    You could join in the clapping at 8pm every Thursday for the NHS and all key workers.
