Churches will be allowed to re-open for private prayer from Monday 15th June; however not all churches will be able to re-open at once. It is intended that several named churches, spread around the Diocese, will be ready to open for private prayer, and are currently being prepared. Other churches will follow as quickly as it can be assured that they are able to fulfil the conditions for cleanliness, and social distancing.
There is a need for volunteers when we open, to limit the numbers in Church and to wipe down surfaces e.g. benches and handles.
If you are under 70, and free of any underlying conditions, and would like to volunteer for this role, please email Fr Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org or Janet at email@example.com with your name and contact details, or 01200 423307. As we receive more guidance from the Diocese Fr Paul will then be in touch.
