Church of England Diocese of Chester Rostherne with Bollington

Temporary suspension of public worship

13 Jan 2021, 1:15 p.m.

Due to the current high infection rates and the increased transmissibility of the new variant of the virus, the Parochial Church Council has decided to suspend public worship from Sunday 17th January. This will be a temporary closure and we will review it at the next meeting of the PCC on 16th March, or earlier if the overall situation improves. 

We have worked hard to make our churches safe places for people to worship, have conducted a thorough risk assessment and incorporated all the recommendations of the government and the Church of England. However, we have a duty of care to all those who belong to our congregations, and in the present circumstances believe that it is prudent to take this extra step for their safety and well being.

In line with government and Church of England guidance, we will continue to hold funerals.
