Coronavirus


We want to keep you up-to-date with information and updates about Coronavirus so that you can take appropriate action.
 
In light of the introduction of national lockdown in England from 5 January and the ongoing ‘alert level 4’ introduced across Wales on 20 December, we strongly encourage churches not to open their buildings for in-person meeting if at all possible.

We recognise that the both UK and Welsh Government guidelines allow churches to remain open during this period. However, given the significant increase in numbers of Covid-19 infections and pressure on the NHS, we advise churches to stand with the wider community in making every effort to limit the spread of the virus.

We would still support churches as they open their buildings to provide vital services to the local community, such as food banks, as has been the case throughout the pandemic.

We know that geographical contexts differ across both England and Wales and we are aware that the decision lies with the local church. Nonetheless we are mindful of the pressure church leaders are under and the greater risk taken by all those involved in hosting open buildings for whom we have a duty of care.

This is a changing situation and we very much hope this will be our advice for only a short period. Resources and sermons for inclusion in online services will continue to be shared through the national and regional team websites.

We stand together in the hope we have in Christ and we are praying for all at this difficult time.
 


Our current advice can be found on our essential guidance page.

There is also more information regarding the Government’s furlough scheme in the Churches as Employers guide.
