Re-opening of churches for private prayer.
As part of the governments plan to get things up and running again, churches will be allowed to reopen for private prayer from Monday 15th June. For this to happen there would need to be various precautions in place which includes completing a checklist for the reopening of church buildings and a Covid-19 risk assessment. Although I am not aware of any of the Methodist churches being left open for private prayer prior to the lockdown on 23rd March. Perhaps something to look at in the future


Re-opening of churches for worship after July4th
The next major change in coming out of lockdown happens on July 4th when the Government
proposes to allow churches to open for worship, amongst a host of other areas being allowed
to open. This is provisional and dependent on the 5 markers that the government has set being
met. I have been holding telephone meetings with the stewards of each church where we have
discussed when to reopen the churches for worship. There has been some prayerful
consideration as to when this can take place, along with the stewards consulting church
members. Following a second telephone conference with the stewards the decision has
reluctantly been made not to open the church for worship on Sunday 5th July. When it is felt
appropriate to open the church for worship everyone will be informed.
