We are following the current guidance issued by the Church of England, in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. For information, please go to: https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches
Two of our churches are open at set times for private prayer.
Because the COVID-19 virus can settle on surfaces for up to 72 hours we cannot yet return to normal opening.
Funerals and weddings may now take place in Church with appropriate social distancing and no more than 30 people.

Sundays 09.30 am to dusk or 1800

The Church of England and Diocese of York have given comprehensive guidance for opening our churches. Here are some of the salient points:
Face masks must be worn in church.
