While we are pleased that the UK government has stated that churches can open for private prayer from the 15th of June 2020, we still have to work on the details of the guidelines/risk assessments needed with the Diocese to make sure churches are safe to open. Once these have been completed, the Diocese will know which Churches can open. We will keep everyone up to date when there is news of what our Church is able to offer.
Getting ready to open again is not a quick and simple process but we are working on the guidelines and we hope to be able to offer some small ways of opening the church safely in the near future, with everyone’s health in the forefront of all decisions.
Keep checking the website for any updated information.
Whilst we are still unable to receive the Eucharist due to the coronavirus pandemic, remember the spiritual communion prayer that can be said from home.
“My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart ... I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You,”
