Church buildings are beginning to open in a limited way to members of the public for individual prayer. Not all will open immediately; many will only open on certain days of the week, to help reduce the risk of virus transmission. See separate page for details.

Church services are also starting to resume in a very limited way, with assessment and management of the risks. See separate page for more information.

Meanwhile resources for prayer and worship at home are posted under the Prayer tab on this website.

Attendance at Church of England church or crematorium funerals is currently restricted: see our resources for worship at home page for prayers to offer if you are prevented from attending a funeral.
