We have had to make the decision to close our church for the foreseeable future. (This has been changed from 18th May. The church is now open for a limited time for private prayer). It has been difficult to keep all points of contact in the church clean. We have (limited access to the church) been cleaning during the week and thank you to those who helped out. However, as we have carpet and with the footfall in our church and the difficulties in cleaning this to sanitary level in light of recent events and the instructions from Government we feel it is safer for the people of our parish and grouping to have the church closed. (Care is needed at all times and your cooperation is greatly appreciated)
