Coronavirus guidance (updated 25th March)

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close.

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in our building.

Our website will continue to be updated with details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life:

The clergy can be contacted in an emergency by telephoning: 01388 327603 / 01388 304882

by email: stpauls_spennymoor@hotmail.com or via the ‘Get in Touch’ page at www.achurchnearyou.com/whitworthchurch

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength… Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing
that nothing can separate us
from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

This webpage will be updated as and when new guidance is issued and further updates will be made available on our social media channels. Facebook and Twitter.
