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 and I believe, following a local risk assessment, 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.
For legal reasons this suspension of services requires a formal process and the approval of the bishop, which we are putting in place.
We are actively looking at adding other local online provision -- watch this space!
St. Swithun's may sill be open for private prayer. See the 'Services' panel for more information.
Online worship will continue. More details can be found on the Benefice newsletter.
Please do not attend church if you have any symptoms of Covid-19.
