Under the current restrictions, churches will remain open for public worship even under national lockdown — although social distancing guidelines mean that capacity will be reduced.

Please pray for the good estate of the Church and public worship; a renewed reduction in infection; those who are sick and those who care for them; those who have suffered mentally and economically; those who have died.

Please contact the clergy for pastoral help, and practical help if you need it.

Public worship continues under national lockdown in England.

Our clergy offer ten public Masses per week and a streamed private Mass. Details of Ordinariate Masses this week are shown in the sidebar and the Calendar. Changes to the schedule at other churches are shown on their websites.

The capacity of churches is limited under the Government’s “Covid Secure” guidelines, and it is not possible to guarantee that everyone who wants to attend any particular Mass will be able to do so, although no-one has been turned away so far. The Sunday obligation remains suspended. If you are not in a position to receive the Blessed Sacrament, please consider making your spiritual communion by following an online Mass.
