COVID-19 update

Last updated: 19th July 2021

While our church communities are alive and active, our church buildings remain closed unless a service is taking place.

To see what services are being held please see our Services page.


The situation may change at any time, so please keep checking back here for the latest information.


Our church buildings can accommodate funeral, wedding and baptism services, subject risk assessment following the guidelines for opening churches for public worship.   If you have any questions about funerals, weddings or baptisms please contact Rev Ted on 01299 890 100 or by e-mail at office@4rivers.church.

Booking continues to be required to attend a church service.

For everyone’s safety, we ask that you continue to wear a face covering, if you are able to.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 you are advised not to attend services inside church buildings.


Decisions about whether to open a church (or not) are made by Rev Ted and the responsible PCC after a thorough risk assessment has been made and sustainable plans are in place to ensure the safety of everyone.
