I am sure we are all praying for the Prime Minister and The Cabinet as they listen to their advisors and consider the data across the country before they make their decision about the easing of restrictions. Like everyone else we are paused before making plans and announcing dates for Church Councils and General Church Meetings and the reopening the various church groups and, of course, waiting to see if worship can return to ‘normal’. Whatever the announcement it will take time to make the permitted/required changes but we will keep you informed of any changes as quickly as we can.
