COVID-19 | Public worship at St Andrew’s suspended.
Tuesday 17th March
In line with the Archbishop's guidance issues on Tuesday 17th March, public worship at St Andrew’s will be suspended for the time being, with immediate effect. This decision will be reviewed in the light of any future guidance from NHS England.
In practice this means that the two public Sunday services at 8.00a.m. and 10.00a.m., and the midweek Thursday morning Holy Communion service at 10.0a.m. are suspended until further notice.
The church will however remain open for private prayer and any visitors are asked to observe the information about public hygiene.
Resources for people to pray at home are being created and more information about this facility will be issued in due course.
Clergy are available to speak to – but this may well involve phone calls rather than face to face conversation. This is in line with our duty of care towards you.
We are in uncharted waters with the advent of COVID19 and the who fabric of our country and world is affected. As part of that world, the church is seeking to act responsibly and adhere to the guidelines for the safety and well-being of all parishioners.
We are all having to discover a new ‘normal’ assured that God is the same yesterday, today and forever Fr Graham
