Services for St Sylvester’s Church Chivelstone
Coronavirus – Latest advice Monday 23 March 2020
The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
But they called on the Church to “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”.
It follows the announcement by the Prime Minister of sweeping restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the virus.
It means all Church of England churches will close with immediate effect. There will also be no Church weddings or baptisms. Funerals at the graveside or in crematoriums can still take place, but only in line with the Prime minister’s Statement.
The Church Fête
The Church Fête will take place at South Allington House on Sunday 2 August 2020. Details to follow.
