COVID-19
Coronavirus

Our Churches (except Huttoft*) will open for Sunday worship at the usual times from 5th July.

Services will be different from usual (eg. no singing) and social distancing will be maintained throughout.

* Bi-weekly Services in Huttoft Village Hall will resume once it is open
(perhaps in September)

All MEETINGS and GROUPS remain CANCELLED and are unlikely to resume before the Autumn. 

BAPTISMS are still not allowed.

Small FUNERALS may take place at St. Peter's Trusthorpe (followed by burial in Churchyard or the neighbouring Cemetery) - please click here for more information.

Small WEDDINGS may now take place (again with limits) - please click here for more information.

Clergy are available by phone/email as usual (see our Contacts page). 

Please pray for all who are leading the fight against the virus, for all health and care workers and for all who are effected by the virus and the changes it is forcing upon our society.

You might like to pray this prayer (taken from the Church of England website):

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Amen.

Worship on Sunday


Our Churches (except Huttoft) are open for Sunday Worship at the usual times.

However, those who are vulnerable to Covid-19 (due to being aged over 70 or having underlying health problems) should consider carefully whether to attend Church at this stage.


If you're not able to worship in Church, you might like to join others in worship either by radio or television or via the internet.

Archbishop Justin Welby
Chaplains from a hospital and a hospice are to join the newly-confirmed Archbishop of York this weekend as he leads worship from York Minster for the Church of England’s weekly online service.

The first service to be presided over at York Minster by Archbishop Stephen Cottrell will focus on prayer and the ‘startling, beautiful heart’ of the message of the Gospel of God’s unconditional love for us.


The service will be available from 9am on Sunday and can be watched on YouTube, Facebook or the Church of England website.

As in previous weeks, the service will include full BSL interpretation and subtitles throughout.
The service has optional subtitles and is BSL-interpreted throughout.
