Parish Church of Wisborough Green, West Sussex, RH14 0EA
Covid-19 Measures - Updated 15 November 2020
Following the Government announcement of a second "Lockdown" (New National Restrictions from 5 November) we were no longer allowed to hold services in church although the building could remain open for individual prayer and contemplation. Assuming these restrictions end on 2 December (as promised) our next "live" service will be on Sunday 6 December. In the meantime, a "virtual" service for Remembrance Sunday was produced and a live service at the War Memorial was recorded - both videos are available via this page. There will be one further "virtual" service before 6 December and that will be available to view on Advent Sunday (29 November).
Weddings, Funerals, Baptisms, etc. - [from 5 November 2020] Weddings and Baptisms are currently not allowed.
Funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people. Linked funeral ceremonial events such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 15 people in attendance. Anyone working is not counted in the 15 or 30 person limit. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.
Please contact the Vicar for updated information on these types of services.
