Chelmsford Cathedral
Latest Information from the Church of England on coronavirus

Last updated Tuesday 24 March 2020 at 17:55

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 23rd March, the Archbishops have written to clergy in support of the measures, requiring that churches must now close both for private worship and public services.

Our church buildings are therefore now closed for public worship,  private prayer and all other meetings and activities except for vital community services until further notice. 

Funerals may now only happen at the Crematorium or at the graveside. Only immediate family members can attend (if the crematorium allows) – that is, spouse or partner, parents and children, keeping their distance in the prescribed way.

Sadly, there can be no weddings in church buildings until further notice.
