The churches are open!
It is with a great deal of pleasure that we are able to say that the churches are open for private prayer! After three long months when we have not been allowed to go into our beloved churches, they are now open on a limited basis.
St Botolph’s in Hardham, St John’s in Bury and St Giles’ in Coldwaltham will be open every day from around 9am to about 5pm. St Nicholas in Houghton, which does not usually open at all in the week, will be open when we are able to do so. We are not allowed to have groups of visitors, only single people or households, and sanitising and social distancing must be observed, please.
There are posters in the churches which give advice how to visit the churches, and links to sites which may be able to provide you with appropriate prayers.
Please respect our buildings and the lock down rules that still apply.
We do pray that you will find solace in being able to have a moment of quiet in our tranquil spaces, and extend a big ‘Welcome’ to you.
