Coronavirus (Covid - 19) -  Suspension of Sunday services

Both our churches are now re-opened for the purposes of

Individual private prayer and organ practice:
Shipbourne – daily except Mondays: 9am-5pm;
Plaxtol – daily: 9am-5pm.

The service on 5th July will be the last pre-recorded service in the current series as, from Sunday 12th July, we shall resume services in our churches, albeit socially distanced.

Thanks to all those who have worked hard to make this possible.

Further details are set out on the News page and the Services page.
While Sunday services are suspended, the Rector  is posting prayers, and a video of a service in one of our churches, each week on the Services page.
