St Mary’s is open for Private Individual Prayer this week during the times below. Please note that the days/times change each week in order to allow more people access. We have the correct measures in place that allow us to offer you a safe place to spend some time in private prayer. It has been fantastic to see people face to face over the past three weeks and to have a ‘distanced’ chat with them! Please do come in confidence if you would like to.
The PCC unanimously agreed not to reopen for Public Worship in July and are considering August in line with the current guidance from the Church of England & the Diocese. The guidance for the legal side of not reopening for Public Worship and the dispensation available is explained in this Guidance from the Church of England.
In the meantime, we will continue to offer Private Prayer sessions at St Mary’s and stream our services through July and August. I know not reopening in August (if that’s the decision of the PCC) will be disappointing for some people but we have to consider the safety of people entering a very restricted space. I will keep you informed on the decision of the PCC in due course.
With all God’s blessings, Revd Mike.
