    Stir up, O Lord,

    may by you be plenteously rewarded;
    through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Dear All

    Government guidance update

    At 5pm yesterday the government updated its guidance for places of worship to reflect the new lockdown Regulations. This includes advice on broadcasting services, involvement of musicians and singers, as well as on support groups, funerals and individual prayer.

     

    The Church of England Coronavirus pages have been updated with a specific guidance note on lockdown which links through to this guidance. There is also an updated Risk Assessment template for the lockdown period which parishes may wish to use to review their existing plans. One thing to note in this is that Public Health England have revised the quarantine period after known exposure to Coronavirus from 72 hours down to 48 hours. This means the period between uses of a building without the need to clean is reduced, so churches that have been using that method to ensure the safety of their buildings may be able to open more often.

     

    It is important to note that, whilst the places of worship guidance applies in most circumstances, other government guidance also has an impact on churches and cathedrals depending on the activity taking place within them. The DCMS guidance on performing arts venues applies if churches or cathedrals are operating as concert or performance halls, and whilst it allows for professional groups to rehearse and perform/broadcast with no audience, non-professional groups are not permitted. All venues are being asked to use their common sense and support the efforts to reduce the spread of the virus as far as they are reasonably able to do so. So if in doubt the question is not how far the law might be pushed but instead: how essential is this activity and does that justify the risks?

    All the best,

    Audrey

    The Ven Audrey Elkington

    Archdeacon of Bodmin
