Our Churches are Open!

Churches are now allowed to open to the public for private prayer and reflection. See below for details of when the churches in the deanery are open.

From 4th July, Churches are allowed to open for services.  These services will be different from normal in so many ways. There will be social distancing in place and a whole host of other measures to ensure that the congregation and clergy remain safe.  Some of the Churches in the deanery will be able to cope easily with these measures some may not.

The Archdeacons of our Diocese, have written to clergy and
churchwardens this week and said:
The re-opening of churches is permission and not compulsion… So we say to you, please allow yourselves adequate time to prepare for a resumption of public worship. 

Not every church needs to recommence public worship before the summer. We might see public worship only partially restored before the autumn.

Please keep revisiting this page for details of when our Churches are opening for worship.
