Unfortunately all services are subject to current Government guidance during the pandemic.
Following HM Government's announcement that England is once again in a full lockdown to try to contain the spread of the coronavirus, at the PCC meetings held in January, in view of the high number of cases of Covid-19 in our area, it was decided that the wisest course of action would be that our church buildings remain closed during February and March, with a decision then being taken at the March PCC meetings.
The PCCs voted in favour of this proposal, and we then sought the views of the Archdeacon of Bedford. He agreed that it would be the best course of action for the time being in our circumstances, with the need to safeguard clergy, volunteers, and congregation members, so with a heavy heart, that is what we shall do. Online worship will continue, at 9.30am each Sunday - please email [email protected] for details.
We ask for your continuing prayers, patience, and understanding as we seek to lead in the best interests of everyone – clergy, volunteers, and church members.
Together with our sister parishes of Moggerhanger and Willington we're also on Facebook - you can find us here
The parish of Cople is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, (PSO). The Diocese of St. Albans safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
Further information can be found on the Safeguarding page which you can access via the link on the menu on the home page.
