In the light of Government guidance yesterday afternoon, the Ministers consulted with Church Officers and key contacts in the church. We all agreed that the Government guidance requires us to cease all church events, activities, and worship immediately.
We realise that the whole situation is very distressing, but we have a duty and a responsibility to do all that we can to protect the public, especially the most vulnerable in society.
We are contacting groups that use our buildings to make appropriate arrangements for their meetings.
We will write again in a day or so with more information about online worship opportunities and we will shortly be in touch with pastoral visitors about ways we can help and support each other.
Please pray, keep in touch with each other, spread the word to those not on e-mail, try to help those in the community who may need help, and be kind.
We will be sending more information as the week progresses.
With best wishes,
Revd. Michael Hopkins
Revd. Philip Simpkins
