Limited Access to Church Buildings following the House of Bishops Statement of 5 May
Very limited access allowed to church buildings is now possible for activities such as pre-recording or streaming of services or private prayer, by ministers in their own parishes, so long as the necessary hygiene and social distancing precautions are taken.
Please note that in each parish there should be only one person appointed for this purpose, although they may be accompanied by others from their own household. Multiple people are strongly discouraged from accessing the space, even if this is done one at a time.
Please note that church buildings remain closed to the public. When a minister is in the church building to pray or pre-record or live-stream worship, the doors should remain locked. The guidance still excludes the possibility of church services, including occasional offices such as baptisms, weddings and funerals.
In the meantime, I have been checking all the buildings twice a week and for insurance purposes, I have been taking photos of them, here is a selection of them – you can click on them to see the bigger image.
