Having received advice from a medic we will not be opening either church at the moment.

I am always available to speak to on the telephone and if anyone comes to the door I would be

able to see you at the door at the required 2 meter social distancing.

This may seem extraordinary but we are in extraordinary times, and this is the latest advice in our

common effort to stop this virus spreading as much as we possibly can.
