The Church continues to be active but our buildings must close

Posted By : Roz Mitchell Wednesday 25th March 2020

An message from the Church of England.

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

 

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
 

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

You can find helpful resources for worship at home here.
