Our response to advice regarding Coronavirus

The Church is changing

As a result of the latest advice regarding the Coronavirus pandemic it is with regret that the Church of England has made the difficult decision to suspend public worship until further notice along with all our other events and all groups run by St Symphorian's.

At St Symphorian's the clergy will be continue to pray Morning & Evening Prayer as well as celebrate the Mass on a daily basis, though this is currently being done in their homes.

We also livestream Mass on a Sunday as well as certain other days on our YouTube channel.  To access the YouTube channel please click here.

We will regularly continue to review advice issued by HM Government as well as the Church of England.
