We note the Government announcement allowing the reopening of churches for supervised private prayer from Monday 15th June. Our primary concern is however the health and safety of church members and visitors. We are not yet in a position to ensure this in St Peter's which is a large and ancient building, currently with an ongoing programme of internal repairs and maintenance. We therefore regret that St Peter's will need to remain closed for the time being whilst we prioritise our work within the wider community during these difficult times. We will keep the situation under review in the light of Covid-19 infection rates and any further Government guidance.
