1 July 2020 (17:40) This page will be updated as soon as possible to reflect new guidance issued by the Church of England on funerals, weddings, baptisms and confirmations issued today. Please come back soon to check the latest situation.
Churches across the diocese are beginning the process of reopening for prayer, worship, funerals.
For all kinds of specific reasons, to do with both people and buildings, a particular church may or may not be able to open at the same time as others so if you do wish to visit your church for private prayer or wish to organise a funeral please do check with your local church.
Advice for clergy, churchwardens and PCC members on reopening their churches can be found in our dedicated section Preparing to Open our Church Buildings.
