The Parish Support Team is available to help you. Please contact us via our e mail address: or click on links below to take you directly to the different areas of our work:

Current guidance on entering church buildings remain in force - only one member of the clergy and one member of their household.
Churches:  Remain closed and will not be open for worship in June
Weddings:  Churches are likely to open for weddings before they re-open for worship. This is likely to coincide with the re-opening of registry offices but will require strict procedures and rules to be put in place before this can happen.
Funerals:  There are no plans to change the current funeral guidance at the moment.
Churchyards:  May be regarded as open spaces and can now be opened subject to strict distancing rules being adopted.  Notices should be displayed.
There is guidance available from the National Church concerning entry to churches by contractors and workmen.
Parishes are the backbone of the Diocese. These pages contain useful information on structure, church buildings, clergy houses, children's work, finance, safeguarding and much more. There's also a handy 'Find a Parish' search, which you can use to find a church, Parish or priest, as well as contact details for your local Deanery or Parish Office.
