St. Mary’s Stoke D’Abernon’s response to the current Covid 19 restrictions
As most people are aware Churches are currently closed for Public Worship although the Government have said that churches could be open from July. Nevertheless limited access by, for example, clergy is permitted. Accordingly it is proposed, as Godfrey says in his Welcome message above, that he will say Morning Prayer on our behalf from within St. Mary’s Church at 10:00 each day on Monday to Thursday, ringing the Church bell at the outset. For the full statement from the Church of England go to https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches .
Inevitably other events that might have taken place at St. Mary’s Church or in the Hall will not take place until further notice These include: Parishes lunches; Mothers and Others; Chair yoga; Lunchtime concerts; and the Quiz night. Moreover the Annual Parish Church Meeting has been postponed to a date to be advised.
As and when further advice is made available it will appear on this Home page of our web site.
