Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance

Last updated: 18 July 2022

Documents updated:

  • Opening and Managing Church Buildings: Update to previous guidance (3rd May) to include revised situation report and changes in government guidance on risk assessments. As national case numbers remain high it is important that, while we should continue to offer Holy Communion in both kinds, no pressure is placed on individual members of congregation to receive the sacrament if they feel unable to do so.

The information and guidance below is produced to help churches address questions relating to Covid-19.

It reflects Government guidance as well as that of public health bodies.

While restrictions are no longer in place, the guidance recognises that Covid-19 is still a risk, and that parishes and settings are responding according to their local situation.
