COVID-19 Government Guidance

Dear all,

Today’s update is just a quick message to take a look at the government guidance on the safe use of community facilities. So many of us use our church buildings not just for worship but as community spaces and it’s important to take guidance to keep these spaces both safe and welcoming during this time.

The guidance can be found here

If you have any questions, please do feel free to reach out to me or Sarah, we’re here for you as much as you need us.

Message from the Archdeacon

Archdeacon’s Update

The speed with which things are changing means that any detail I might write about re-opening our churches & buildings could be out-of-date within days (hours?)…

However, the main CofE Covid-19 page contains links to all the relevant guidance (church and government) and is updated very regularly. In the meantime, a few key links to note and use:

If in doubt, do contact your Area Dean Sarah Guinness and/or me – between us we’ll find a sensible way through the complications and questions that we’re all dealing with.

Praying for wisdom, energy, and grace in the coming days.
