Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Holy Trinity Willenhall


11 Jan 2021, 8 p.m.

As you are probably aware, under the new lockdown restrictions, churches are permitted to remain open for public worship.

However, in the last couple of days, some significant developments have occurred locally regarding Covid 19 and places of worship: Wolverhampton Public Health has asked all places of worship to consider closing because of Covid rates in the city; the infection rate in Wednesfield (which we border as a parish and where some of us live) is currently one of the highest in the country; the majority of churches in our Deanery have closed for worship; Lichfield Cathedral has closed for worship.

Given the extremely high rates of Covid in our area, and given all of the above, Holy Trinity District Church Council has decided unanimously to CLOSE Holy Trinity Church for the time being until the local situation improves.

The only exception to this will be for Funerals which we will continue to conduct in church as an important service to the community at this time.

This closure comes into effect from today - 11th January.

We will, of course, continue with our on-line service provision and paper copies of our services can be emailed or posted out to you if you get in touch with us.

We are very sad about having to make this decision, but the health and well-being of our congregation and the wider community must be our first priority.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch.
