Church of England Diocese of Winchester Shalden

The Building has been closed but we are reopening for Easter.

28 Mar 2021, 6:45 p.m.

As a result of the third national lockdown it became necessary to close our church buildings. The Government's Road Map is enabling us to reopen for Easter. Unfortunately all the Covid related restrictions still apply which means our seating capacity is reduced by about 60%. This in turn means that seats get "booked" very quickly, leading to a waiting list, or seeking places in the other churches in the Benefice.

Our regular online services continue and comprise audio-based worship on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings. These may be accessed via our Benefice web site http://www.blmsbenefice.org/. On the home page click on the upper black and red "sausage" button which will take you to a page where you can click on the latest online service.

The services planned for April 2021 can be found on the Services/Forthcoming Services tab of the Benefice web site. This page also contains details of the contacts for each of the four churches. Please note the correct telephone number for Shalden is 01256 381273.

We have all missed meeting in fellowship and it will be good to meet up and give thanks and glory to God again collectively, albeit in a limited way and still subject to Covid restrictions.
