COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update (17th March 2020)

With immediate effect the Churchwardens have decided that the regular Sunday services at St Mary’s church will be suspended for the time being.

It is with regret and sadness that we wish to announce the suspension of the regular Sunday services following the latest advice from the Government on reducing social mixing in the community for all ages, especially those ages 70+. We feel that it would not be appropriate to encourage gatherings at this time and currently, because of our lack of an incumbent, we are reliant on retired members of the local clergy and other older volunteers to support the church.

We will be looking into how we can move forwards from here – and if we can find a way to broadcast some services over the internet.

If you have any questions please call the parish office on 01283 808408
