UPDATED GUIDANCE FOR PLACES OF WORSHIP    

Churches are allowed to open for prayer and communal worship at this time according to the provision of the most recent national legislation and Government guidance. This decision is based on two factors: the recognition that our churches are safe, and that the service they offer is essential.

At this phase of the pandemic, which is causing alarm and fear, our churches will exercise their role with increased diligence to ensure continuing safety and service.

Ensuring that our Church was safe for worship and mitigating the chances of spreading the virus through social contact, weekday mass was reduced to just one public mass on Wednesday along with Saturday and Sunday.

The Stewards have been particularly on top of the task ensuring the safety of everyone.

We pray for the dedicated work of the NHS and continue of offer spiritual support to the staff, patients and the parish community.

Please feel free to contact the Parish office if you need any support at 01376 512219.
