Churches status

All public worship is suspended and our churches are now closed following Government Advice which is that all Church of England churches will close with immediate effect in line with the Government's instructions. There will also be no weddings or baptisms in churches, regardless of the number attending.  Funerals at the graveside or in crematoriums can still take place, but only in line with the Prime Minister's Statement.

In the light of this,  in common with every English diocese, our church buildings are closed entirely, given how important physical distancing is in saving lives. This includes all associated rooms, facilities, parish offices and halls.

The doors of our churches are now closed, even for private prayers. Our clergy team continue to pray for us all on a daily basis and are available to speak to. 

If you would like to speak to a member of the clergy, please ring 01252 715505 or contact the Bourne Parish Helpline for this and other urgent needs.
