The Priory Church of St Mary at Deerhurst,         Gloucestershire

Message from the Vicar:

You may have heard the news that church buildings  may re-0open on Monday 15th June.

The Church wardens and Ministry Team are meeting  together to discuss how and when we might re-open the churches soon – but we are not quite ready yet.

Also, bear in mind  that churches may only re-open for individual private prayer and for funerals with limited numbers of close relatives,

the number depending on whether social distancing measures  can be adhered to. Other service and tourist visits cannot take place in churches yet.

We realise that the church buildings as paces of prayer and memories are important to many people both from within and outside the Benefice.

It will be very exciting to open the doors  again and return to these wonderful atmospheric places.

Please bear with us as we work our way through ideas, plans and risk assessments. We are  hoping to re-open the churches on a rota basis starting on Monday 29th June

(Visitors are always welcome.) later
(The church is open every day) later

Group visits can be arranged via Andrew Crowther and Alan Dawkins .. see Contacts
