Face coverings in church: (from the Diocese of Winchester)

The Government has announced that, from 8 August, face coverings will be legally required in places of worship. Revised government regulations and guidance will be published shortly, and the Church of England will then update its own detailed guidance documents. However, in the meantime, FAQs regarding face coverings have been updated on the COFE websiteaccordingly:


From 8 August, face coverings are required by law to be worn in a greater number of public indoor settings including places of worship, museums, galleries, cinemas and public libraries.


There are valid exemptions for some individuals and groups not to wear a face covering in these settings. In particular, those who are leading services or events in a place of worship, and those who assist them (for instance by reading, preaching, or leading prayer) do not always need to wear a face covering, although one should be worn especially if physical distancing cannot be maintained (i.e. distributing consumables). This exemption does not apply to worshippers, who should wear face coverings consistent with the requirements for any other public space.


Those exemptions will also cover the bride and groom at a wedding and those officiating/leading the wedding. This exemption does not apply to those observing the wedding, who should wear face coverings consistent with the requirements for any other public space.


A message from Revd Ann (posted 11 October 2020)

“On this my last Sunday as a resident in our Benefice (before I move to Gloucestershire), I want to say au revoir and a big thank-you to you all. It has been my privilege to minister here for well over 20 years, and it has one of the best things in my life. Thank you all for your love and trust. I will be coming back to see as many as I can of all the people I’ve got to know here over the last 37 years. And be assured that I won’t ever forget you and these wonderful villages: you will always be in my heart and my prayers.

God bless you. 

Love, Ann
