Latest Church of England Advice on face coverings issued on Thursday


We strongly advise that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing. You can read the detailed guidelines here.


If in a service you need a minister or reader to remove their mask so you can lip read please let that person know, that is one of the allowed exceptions.



Please pray for those who are ill

We remember those whom we know,

who are suffering in sickness or adversity,

and those who especially need our prayers at this time.

Also the families of those who have died

Generous God,
