Reopening Our Churches for Private Prayer

Following the latest guidance from the government the doors of our churches are beginning to open again to the public. Please see details below for each open church.

We’ve all been through an awful lot over the past few months so perhaps now more than ever we all need space for solace, prayer and quiet reflection.

We are working hard behind the scenes  to make sure our churches will be a safe space for everyone who would like to visit. 

• All visitors are advised to wash their hands before leaving home to visit the church, and then again on returning home. Hand washing and WC facilities are not open to visitors.

• Please do not enter the church if you, or someone from your household, are showing any symptoms of COVID-19.

• If you are designated as clinically extremely vulnerable, and are subject to the shielding requirements, you are also advised to stay at home.

If you cannot make it to the church but would like someone to pray for you, or for something you have on your mind, you can text our prayer hotline on 07855 7590254.
