We all received a clear message from Downing Street recently: 

“Stay at home; and do everything to minimise contacts outside your household.”

Present government guidance states that:

Places of worship

You can attend places of worship for a service. However, you must not mingle with anyone outside of your household or support bubble. You should maintain strict social distancing at all times.

You should follow the national guidance on the safe use of places of worship.

from Guidance National lockdown: Stay at Home, 4th January, 2021

We will remain open for the celebration of Holy Mass as long as we can do so safely or until government guidance changes. 

We all need to remain vigilant, and do what we can to protect each others' health. 

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass is still suspended.

We have to leave the  doors and windows open to ensure adequate ventilation. It is cold in the church, so wrap up warm.

All must observe the usual Covid-19 precautions:

For those attending church, the wearing of a face covering is mandatory unless exempt - more inormation on face coverings from HMG at this link. 

When travelling to, entering, and inside places of worship, people should observe strict social distancing (2 metres, 6 feet +) from anyone not of their household. 

In addition, the usual guidance applies regarding hand sanitising and those with any symptoms should not attend Holy Mass.




We now have dedicated parish electronic giving through Dona, a small company that specialises in helping parishes with secure e-giving.
