Access to churches for private prayer

The Government have said the churches may open for private prayer.  However the Church of England requirements on PCCs to keep the building “covid” free are a bit demanding on small rural parishes.  If anyone would like to enter one of the church buildings for prayer, they should contact Stephen or one of the churchwardens.

Promoting a Safer Church

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the church and is of the utmost of importance to us.  Please see our statement on promoting a safer church which tells you how to get support and what to do if you have any concerns.  Our parish Safeguarding Officer is Sarah Croft.
