    PARTIAL REOPENING OF St Helen's Church from Sunday 28th March 2021

    Dear Friends,

    I am delighted to say that from Sunday 28th March St Helen’s Church is open once more for one service per week at 10am each Sunday for Sunday Worship.

    For the first few weeks we will hold a single weekly Sunday service of Morning Prayer or Holy Communion at 10am at St Helen’s. 

    It is with sadness but a firm grasp of the reality of the situation and the resources we have that we cannot open all our churches and immediately return to our normal service pattern. 

    I know that this will be a disappointment, but no-one wants to undo all the good we have done through being careful over the last few months and I would urge all those who fall into vulnerable categories and all who feel vulnerable to continue to exercise extreme caution and care. No one should return until they feel fully comfortable and safe in so doing.

    The controls we have put in place to enable this partial re-opening of St Helen's are described in this link. Please take time to read them carefully.

    We will continue to follow Government and Church guidance on Covid.

    If there is any way that we can help or support you, please get in touch with us (see the enquiries tab above).

    We continue to pray for the health and well-being of everyone.
