PUBLIC WORSHIP GRADUALLY RETURNING

As from the 4th July, the Government have given permission for public worship to take place under certain conditions, and the Church of England has been given guidance at the end of June as to how this will happen

At the point of updating this page, the Diocese are considering what advice needs to be given to individual churches, then we will have to carry out risk assessments to determine what we are able to do.
See Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for churches on the Church of England web site for details and updates. 

IMPORTANT ON-LINE EVENT
The Confirmation of the Election of Bishop Stephen Cottrell as the 98th Archbishop of York will take place on Thursday 9th July at 11am. The service will be broadcast entirely by video conference and will be live on this direct link just before 11am. (The link is already working and is open for checking.) 

Sunday services will continue to be broadcast by the BBC on all local radio stations every Sunday.
