The latest advice from the government and the
Bishop of Hertford on wearing of Facemasks/face
coverings in church is that it is advisable to wear
during the time in church including private prayer and
during services, the current advice is not compulsory
only strongly recommended. There is strong evidence to
suggest that wearing of facemasks/face coverings
significantly reduces the risk of viral transmission.
If anyone has anyone they wish to pray for please send
an e mail to Reverend Debbie her email address is
