Welcome to our COVID-19 section

25/1/22: In light of new government guidance, the Church of England has published new guidance on the opening and managing of church buildings, which can be found here.

The Rt Revd Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London, has put out a statement thanking front line workers, parishes, and all who have made sacrifices to help protect one another from COVID-19, as England prepares to move away from ‘plan B’ restrictions. It can be read here.

If you cannot find an answer to your Covid-19 questions on this section of the site, please email covid-19help [at] (subject: Covid-19%20questions) . Your question will then be directed to someone who can provide you with a more detailed answer.


A prayer

A prayer about the coronavirus outbreak, offered by the national church. 

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Church of England have recently been involved in conversations with charities and other organisations during this challenging time who are producing constructive advice/reminders about safeguarding for those they work with and support. Here is a short advice note to this effect that your parishes, PSOs and clergy may find useful. This will sit on the national website alongside other information that we are regularly updating.
