Church Opening Times

In light of the steep increase in COVID 19 cases both locally and nationally, the Standing Committee has decided that St Bartholomew's will be closed for Private Prayer at this time. (St Christopher's remains closed for prayer and services while in use as a Vaccination Centre)

Although the national guidelines do allow for churches to be open for services, it is felt that to keep our congregation and volunteers safe we should remain closed.

This decision will be kept under review, although we do not expect there to be any change until infection rates fall and we move back to TIer 3 restrictions or equivalent.

We apologise for any distress this may cause, and ask for your understanding. Online services will continue each Sunday and there are many other online resources on both our own website and at the Church of England website.

We ask that you continue to pray for the Church, for NHS and key workers, for our community and for each other.
