Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Shelland

Some churches in the Benefice to open

26 Jul 2020, 12:15 a.m.


The Church continues to be alive and active, but our building must remain closed for now

As we come out of the period of lockdown due to coronavirus our churches are beginning to open.  Shelland is small, and will remain closed for now although larger churches within our Benefice are open for private prayer as well as Sunday worship.  Weather permitting, an evening service will be held in Shelland church yard during the summer.  We must continue to distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives therefore all necessary precautions and social distancing is being followed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.


Our weekly Pew Sheet and sermon can also be obtained by contacting Revd Chris

The rector of this church, Revd Christopher Childs can be contacted by telephoning 01449 673280 or emailing [email protected] or Revd Canon Pauline Higham: 01449 771791 [email protected]
