Welcome to St Peter, Widmerpool
6th Jan. 2021 -- Coronavirus updateWe have now entered a third National Lockdown, which looks to last until at least mid-February, and quite possibly beyond.
The new Covid-19 variant is much more infectious, with one in three infected showing no symptoms, and its prevalence has risen considerably with 1 in 50 currently infected in the East Midlands, and is expected to rise more.
Although under the government rules for this lockdown, in-church in-person common worship is allowed, the church wardens, PCC and I believe, following a local risk assessment, and following our bishop's guidance, that in the light of the new risks posed by the new Covid-19 variant it is unwise to do so.
This means that the worship and study groups offered across the benefice, at least until mid-February, will be online only.
Online Evening Prayer continues as usual — just email me [email protected]) if you want to join us for that. All welcome.
We are actively looking at adding other local online provision -- watch this space!
About the church
A small, friendly, village church. Our services are usually fortnightly, on the second and fourth Sundays of the month, at 11am.
Whilst we are under Covid-19 restrictions, please see the 'Services and Events' page to see details of what services we offer, or whether the church is open for private prayer.
There is also an online Evening Prayer each Sunday, which we share with other churches in the benefice and others who join us from further afield.
