On Monday, 19 July, the archdeacons sent the following message to clergy, churchwardens and lay leaders in our churches,

"We know that many of you will have already been giving consideration to this guidance. The emphasis is that church leaders are best placed to know their own communities and environments and we are conscious of the time and thought this involves for you all. Our guidance at this time, is to proceed with care and caution in the light of current Covid rates.

"There will be times when there are different emphases and attitudes to risk locally and our thoughts are very much with you in interpreting this guidance.  Do not hesitate to contact the office of your Archdeacon if you have specific questions and queries."
