It has recently been announced that Churches can open again. What this means is going to be slightly different for every church dependent on size of Church, Congregation and resource available to maintain the cleaning guidelines and ensure social distancing. Please refer to Government advice on the maximum numbers allowed to attend and the physical distancing that is required. Please visit individual Church Websites or Social media pages for more details.
Weddings and funerals will be able to take place in churches from 1st July, subject to the same guidelines on physical distancing, maximum numbers and cleaning.
Baptisms (also known as Christenings) will not be available until Stage 1 of the easing of lockdown. Government advice currently is that we do not engage in any live singing in our gatherings.
Whilst we remain in this transition period The Dean’s Night Prayer Service will continue on a daily basis, and the text is available here, which you can download.
