Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 23rd March, the Archbishops have written to clergy in support of the measures, requiring that churches must now close both for private worship and public services.
Our church buildings are therefore now closed for public worship, private prayer and all other meetings and activities except for vital community services until further notice.
Whilst our buildings are closed, the church is still working and praying, please find resources to help you at home on this page.
The latest advice for churches can be viewed by following this link: www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches
The Church of England has many resources including: Today’s Prayer, Daily Prayer including listening to Prayer during the Day and Night Prayer, Link to the Time to Pray App and special prayers, intercessions and liturgy for COVID-19, all available by following this link: /www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/church-online
