Church Services suspended in February

Following a review of the national and local Covid-19 infection rates the churchwardens and the vicar  decided to hold virtual services through January rather than meeting up in our Church buildings.   Now  in February they feel that it is still not safe or sensible to meet up for worship in our church buildings. Many people do not feel safe yet, as long as the current lockdown continues, we feel that we should continue to hold our Sunday services online.
