Lockdown arrangements for our Church

3 Jan 2021, 11:30 p.m.

The UK government guidance for England says that: Places of Worship can be open subject to the level of risk being assessed and Covid secure measures being in place. As Sandwell Public Health has let us know that the  local risks continue to be a threat to us all - we have decided that it is not safe to open for worship so we shall only be opening for individual prayer.

This means that during this third second period of national lockdown our Church will be open weekly on Sundays at 10am until 11am for individual prayer. We remind you that you should not come to Church if you are ill, if you have symptoms of Covid, if you have been told to isolate or if you are in a vulnerable group that has been advised to shield.
