Public worship suspended
A message from Fr Chris Atkinson
It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to suspend Sunday public worship at the Abbey Church during January.
All the indices suggest that we are in a worse situation than last March, and with the additional worry of the variant strain of Covid being much more infectious, I feel that this is the right course of action to take.
I am also mindful of the Tier 4 advice that we should stay home as much as possible in order to reduce the possibility of transmitting or being infected by the disease.
As in the previous lock-downs, I shall post a written 'join-in-at-home' service on our website and our Facebook page on Sundays during January.
The position with regard to re-opening the church to Sunday public worship will be reviewed during the final week of the month.
With best wishes for the New Year, and with prayers that you may stay safe.
Fr. Chris Atkinson, Vicar
