Churches are open for private prayer and online service

The Churches are open for Private Prayer

Updated 19 June, 2020

Opening up the churches after “Lockdown”.

The government has now decided that “Places of Worship” can open but only for private prayer.

For our churches to be open we need to make sure they are safe for people to enter.

Milton, Fifield and Idbury Churches are now open daily with signs on the doors explaining how to safely enter the churches for private prayer.

Shipton church is not yet open. With the added complications of the repair works, there are currently surveys and inspections taking place. We hope to be able to open the church shortly.

Funerals are now allowed to take place in church (with restricted numbers to ensure social distancing measures are respected).

We still cannot hold regular Sunday Services or Weddings or Baptisms.
