Services Update

christmas Church_news Notices

Good morning everyone,

As you all know the Church is allowed to remain open under the Covid rules in Tier 4, but due to the increased infectiousness of the new variant of Coronavirus, the decision has been made to close the Church whilst in Tier 4.

This was not an easy decision for Janet and the church wardens of the benefice, but in order to maintain the safety and wellbeing everyone, it had to be made.

This does mean that our Christmas day service is cancelled, but if all goes well during the next year we will be able to have a church bursting at the seams next Christmas.

The benefice service at St. Mary's on Sunday 27th will also be cancelled and until further notice the services in Ellesborough have been suspended.

This is a sad time for the Church as it should be one of joy and celebration.

I do hope you will be able to celebrate within your close family and home and keep safe and well.


With best wishes
