Services Suspended

Coronavirus – COVID 19   –  23 March 2020

Following Government advice, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have suspended all public worship. This means that no normal Sunday services, or midweek Eucharists can take place and the forthcoming Feast of Easter will not be celebrated in the normal way.

This is a difficult situation for many of us, but the seriousness of the threat to public health, and especially to some of the more vulnerable members of our community, mean that drastic measures are right and necessary.

To help us to maintain a sense of unity, as well as to assist our private devotions, a number of resources are being made available on line: initially there are links on the church’s Facebook page (Wilton Parish Church). it is hoped to add further sites and resources in the next few days.

Church-members who do not have access to the internet can have paper copies of meditations or recordings on CD.

Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals are permitted, but under very restricted conditions. Please check the Church of England website for further details.
