Church of England Diocese of Oxford Gainfield

St Mary's open for private prayer

17 Jul 2020, 8:30 a.m.

Due to Covid-19 requirements for cleaning and the limitations we have with our volunteers, many of whom are vulnerable or shielding, the church wardens and clergy team have made a benefice decision to open each church for one day a week; Tuesday to Sunday for individual prayer, and on Sundays we will continue with our livestream worship via Cherbury Gainfield YouTube channel.

The situation is being reviewed at weekly church warden and clergy meetings so that we can adapt and respond to open more often as soon as we can do so whilst having all necessary regard to the safety of our congregation, visitors and volunteers.

Please do bear with us and continue to check for ongoing updates via

the Cherbury with Gainfield website,

our FaceBook page ,

and of course, the weekly parish newsletter (issued on Thursdays).
