Church of England Guidance on COVID-19

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 23rd March, the Archbishops have written to clergy in support of the measures and again on 27 March, requiring that churches must now close both for private worship and public services. Our church buildings are therefore now closed for public worship,  private prayer and all other meetings and activities except for vital community services until further notice.

I’m only seeing it now thanks to a friend on Facebook.My husband and I enjoy visiting the different Churches when visiting Britain and discovering their history.

His name was Thomas Albert Hancock, date of burial was the 9 October 1929, aged 30 years. Apparently, there is no record as to the exact spot, as we would have liked to place a memorial stone in his memory.Lovely church, so pleased we visited.
