Church of England Diocese of St.Albans Clothall

Suspension of Worship at St Mary the Virgin, Clothall, due to Corona Virus

18 Mar 2020, 10 p.m.

In the light of the directive from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York that ‘All Public worship is suspended until further notice’, St Mary the Virgin, Clothall will suspend all public worship for the foreseeable future. Obviously is a drastic measure, not experienced in our lifetime, but if this evil virus is to be contained and eventually suppressed then such a measure must be pursued.

At this crucial time, it is important that as a community we help others who are in need or are overcome by the situation. Your full support is very much valued and needed at this time.

Fiona, our Rector can be contacted via her email [email protected] or by phone 01763-284189

You can join our services via the Zoom Application from your own home. Please see our services tab for more information.
