Our church buildings are currently closed

Last updated: 13th January 2021

While our church communities are alive and active, sadly our church buildings are closed.

The PCCs have agreed, jointly, to close our Churches for public worship and private prayer; therefore, Sunday worship will comprise Zoom services only – for the foreseeable future.   This decision will be revisited in February, or earlier if the Covid situation changes.

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

Our church buildings can continue to accommodate funeral services, subject to strict COVID-19 regulations in force at the time. 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.

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.
