Important Information – Coronavirus COVID-19

***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.

This means that there will NOT be the usual public services on a Wednesday morning or on Sunday mornings at either St Francis or St Clare’s.

Prayers will be said by clergy and ministers on behalf of everyone and we are actively considering ways of sharing this with our wider community.
Please stay safe and healthy – with the assurance of our prayers

Our two churches will be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place.

Fr Jonathan
