Following a discussion between all Diocesan Bishops on Monday 23 March and the subsequent broadcast statement by the Prime Minister the same day, all places of worship are now to be fully closed with immediate effect – that is, for private prayer and daily offices as well as for public worship.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued a further letter, dated Tuesday 24 March, offering further reflection and guidance.

This is a difficult and challenging time for everyone.  We will endeavour to keep sharing with you online.  Stay safe and please look out for the vulnerable where you can.
