The first step of the Government’s roadmap illustrated by the Church of England’s coronavirus recovery group in a church context

THE Church of England’s coronavirus recovery group has produced a new graphic to show how the Government’s roadmap out of the pandemic will look in a church context. The details are as previously reported (News, 22 February), and the official site continues to counsel caution.

It states: “We will provide more advice about how this will affect worship and other church activities as we receive information from government. These pages will be reviewed and updated as the changes come into effect.”

Places of Worship in England have remained open throughout the lockdown since January, many simply for private prayer, others for public worship. It remains up to incumbents and PCCs to decide whether their churches should be open or closed, with guidance by bishops.

No changes have been made to the official government guidance on places of worship since the four-stage roadmap to lifting restrictions across England was announced last week.
