Church activities during the pandemic

Following discussions with Church wardens and key volunteers, I have decided that we will not be offering gathered church activities (other than Sunday worship) in July and August and that both the West Wittering Church Room and St James Centre will remain closed. Government guidance is still very restrictive and demands that organisations are able to put in place and sustain very strict Covid secure protocols.

We will review this decision in September when we might anticipate new guidance from the Government.

Please also note that as of Sunday 26th July there will be ONE 8am service of Holy Communion to be held at West Wittering and the 10am Outdoor Service at Birdham. Numbers have been very low at the Birdham 8am and by not opening the Church for gathered worship we do not need to quarantine the church building for 72 hours and it can remain open for private prayer.

Every blessing
