Church News


The Government announced that from 4th July public worship could resume in church buildings, though with some important restrictions. Since then a number of local lockdowns have been imposed – although none so far requiring the closure of places of worship - so it is important for parishes to check their local situation. The Diocese have provided general guidance on matters related to buildings management which will help PCCs ensure that buildings are ready to be opened safely and in line with government guidance. In using all this advice, Government guidance on social distancing and other relevant public health measures must be taken into account. Each church building is different, and a proportionate response will be necessary according to local circumstance

Our usual 10.30am Communion services have recommenced but at the moment services will only be held in Caston, Gt Hockham & Thompson churches until further notice, so we can maintain social distancing.  Services will be therefore held as follows:
