Church of England Diocese of Ely Stanground

Church Closure

19 Dec 2020, midnight

Following the Government announcement on Saturday 19th December and in light of Peterborough being in Tier 4. The very difficult decision has been made to close all 3 of our Churches until further notice.

<div>The Prime Minister said that communal worship could continue in all tiers, however with 2 of our Churches in Tier 4 and the briefing saying that at present there is uncertainty whether the Covid safety measures that were put in place such as 2 meter distance and wearing masks are effective with a new strain, we feel this is the right decision. Our main priority is to keep everyone as safe as we can. </div><div>Please keep safe. </div>

We as a Church family are aware that this can be isolating for many of us. We will continue to offer our Services on YouTube. Our sunday Service goes live on our YouTube Channel at 11 am. The Service can be found on our YouTube channel by searching for Stanground & Farcet C of E Churches or by clicking on the MORE ABOUT EVENT on the Service and Events page. On our YouTube Channel you will find other material including a weekly reflection from Rev Carol Avery and stories from our Children's and families team. We will also make sure that all other Services are available on our Service and Events page.

If we can help you in anyway then please do get in touch with us and we are only too happy to offer support and care where needed.

Do contact the Church Office for more information.
