With the government's announcement of a third National Lockdown; church wardens have agreed with Reverend Allison that there will be a suspension of public worship in all the churches within the Bredon Hill Group. This is a decision which has not been taken lightly but given the age of the congregation in our churches, the speed in which the new strain of the virus can be transmitted; the welfare of the clergy members taking our services and the requirement not to travel beyond our villages it was agreed that this was the best cause of action. This decision will be reviewed at the end of January.

In the meantime a mixture of Morning Prayer via Zoom and YouTube recorded services will be provided. Details of our services can be found on the Services and Events page.

St Barbara's is open for private prayer on a Tuesday, Friday and Sunday between 10am and 5pm.
