Services suspended and Church closed

1 Jan 2021, 4 p.m.

Sadly the decision has been made during the current restrictions to suspend services. 

The churchwardens have been in discussion with their colleagues at SJB / CTK and all four are agreed that under present circumstances the churches should be completely closed. This means that even limited opening for private prayer will be suspended until further notice. The wardens are very much aware that this not a course of action that we would wish and may cause distress to some people. Nevertheless, it is considered to be the wise and responsible reaction to the Tier-4 constraints imposed by the Government as well as to the current escalation of infection, hospitalisation and death. Needless to say the situation is being kept under continuous review and the church will be re-opened as soon as practicable.
