Covid-19 Update from Leicester Diocese

Bishop Martyn suggests that we return to encouraging everyone to wear masks in church and that we keep buildings well ventilated (suggesting also that services may need to be kept short in these cold, winter months). The situation may change rapidly in the coming weeks so please check the national and diocesan websites regularly for updates.

Covid-19: Tier 4

Tier 4 – Update on Sunday worship services in January 2021.

We have now been put into Tier 4 which means we are being asked to stay at Home.

Therefore, we have decided to continue with our Zoom Services online for the next few weeks at least, as this seems to be the best way to worship and keep people safe.

We are very grateful to Revd Martin Hathaway for ensuring there is a Zoom service every week as this is really important. These are Communion services and open to everyone to join in. (You do not have to take communion if you prefer not to but the option is there).

Maxine Johnson will send people the link to join these services, if you email her on

We thank you for your continued understanding in these difficult times and pray that with patience, we will be able to meet in person sometime in the future. Thank you.
Stay at home, protect yourselves and those you love. 🙏
