CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE 23rd MARCH:

Following the Prime Minister's announcement at 8.30pm on 23rd March all church buildings are now closed. There will be no public worship, private prayer or any other meetings or activities in churches until further notice.
 

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 20th MARCH:-

WEDDINGS, FUNERALS, BAPTISMS:
Special guidance has been issued with regard to weddings, the reading of Banns, Funerals and Baptisms. If you need any of this information please write to:-  rector@brickhillschurches.org.uk 

THE CHURCH ANNUAL MEETINGS:
The dates had already been agreed for the Annual Church Meetings for each of the four parishes. Bishop Steven has signed a legal instrument to extend the deadline for parishes to hold their annual meetings to the end of October 2020. Current office holders will accordingly be able to remain in office longer than they would otherwise have done. A new date for the Annual Meetings will be circulated at the appropriate time. 


CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE 17th MARCH:

In light of Government guidance around non-essential contact, we have received notice that the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended, and so there will be no further Church services or other midweek meetings until further notice.
