Public Worship during the Coronavirus Crisis

National Lockdown rules apply in England. These means that by law we must not be outside our home except where necessary.

The church is permitted to stay open for work purposes, e.g., electrical work to be done inside church, for public worship, and for funerals. If you visit the building, please follow the protocols advertised in the church. (In any case, no-one showing symptoms of COVID-19 should come into the building. You should also refrain from doing so if you are self-isolating due to a possible or confirmed case of COVID-19 in your household, or because you have been requested to do so by NHS Test & Trace. Further details can be found at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.) Please make sure that you indicate which areas of the church you have used.

On 8 January, the Mayor of London has declared a major incident across the capital due to Covid infections being out of control. Council Leaders are now making a request across London to consider voluntary closure. The Bishop of London has indicated that there are a number of personal and wider aspects to take into account and decisions need to be taken locally. But should we wish to remain open a new risk assessment must be undertaken. As this has not been completed yet, the decision was taken not to meet for public worship on Sunday 10 January.
