Church of England Diocese of Chichester Preston: St John with Brighton St. Augustine and St. Saviour


1 Jan 2021, 1 a.m.


As you all know, we're in full lockdown, the NHS is under immense strain, new variant Covid-19 is spreading fast, and we're all being encouraged to stay home and avoid those outside our bubble except where absolutely necessary.

 With this in mind, and to ensure the safety of the congregation and everyone we come into contact with, the PCC has taken the difficult decision to go beyond the legal recommendations and *suspend all activities*. Effective immediately, there will be no worship services, the church will not be open for private prayer, and the halls are closed to all activities. 

Of course we'd rather not be in this position - but we are, and it's our Christian duty to put the safety of others above our desire to meet together.

We're looking into ways to continue contact by phone and by technological means. And we'll review the situation towards the end of the month and keep you informed.
