Church opening news:
You would have seen the PM's announcement that churches can open for worship from 4th July.
We have several meetings in place to discuss this (Churchwardens, Lay Ministers, PCC’s). All preparations will be made carefully and slowly as we have so many COVID 19 regulations to
So during July we will still be closed…
We hope to open for Private prayer in August, and open for worship when the schools return in September.
In Northamptonshire the rate of infection is still quite high, not improving as some parts of the country are, and so it's no safer to consider opening now than it was a month ago.
While I remain a strong advocate of churches being open for prayer, I'm an even stronger advocate of protecting people from coronavirus.
God isn't bounded by church buildings. You can pray anywhere and he'll be there with you.
Our amazing Church buildings are sacred places and we all long to be back in them with each other – BUT when we are safe to do so…
So our churches won’t be open yet….
So keep watching this space for more details…
