Coronavirus

This page will be updated as and when new guidance from Government and the Church of England is published. 

10/9/2020

We now have confirmation that the new Government ‘rule of six’ restriction does not apply to places of worship which means we can continue to hold our services in our Church building. Please remember that you need to book a seat before attending, as explained here.

OPENING THE BUILDING AT ALL SAINTS

26/9/2020

Our church wardens sent a letter to all church members regarding the re-starting of our services in our church building. You can read a copy of the letter here.

If you have any questions please email the church office

Pastoral Care

The biggest challenge we will face in the next few weeks (and perhaps months) is ensuring pastoral support for isolated, sick or economically hard pressed individuals. This is too great a burden for clergy and the pastoral team alone. We are all the Body of Christ. We are introducing a plan where we ‘adopt’ someone else in the congregation to phone regularly and offer practical help to. “Little children, love one another.”

Prayer

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, we encourage you to join with us in prayer. The church has faced plagues and pestilence before – and it has often proved to be our finest hour. 

  • Pray for health professionals across the world who are on the front line responding to the outbreak and for scientists working on vaccines.
  • Pray for God’s healing, peace and restoration for all those affected by this virus. 
  • Pray for wisdom for all people in a position of leadership as they make difficult decisions around responding to the outbreak.
  • Why not say the Lord’s Prayer as you wash your hands? It takes about the time recommended to wash them thoroughly.
