Parish of Bisley and West End

Welcome

  

Further to the  statement from the Archbishop's of Canterbury and York given on Tuesday 17th March, 2020, there will be a suspension of all public worship services until further notice due to the current COVID-19 crisis: 


"In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.  Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place." 

This applies to all services and gatherings going forward, including Communion, Messy, Puppets and Matins services, songs of praise, baptisms, weddings and weddings. 

As of Monday 23rd March, the Diocese of Guildford have also instructed all churches to close their doors to private prayer, as well, so Holy Trinity Church, West End will remain closed, until the ban is lifted. 

If you are in need of help or support, then please do get in touch with the Parish office and we will do all we can. It may be as simple as a phonecall or help with shopping or picking up medication, but please do get in touch and our Pastoral Team and Revd Richard Abbott will provide all the support we can. Please note that the parish office is also now closed, so please get in touch with us via email

During this time of service suspension, we would urge you to check out the resources available online. We have highlighted a few here, but many more are available on both the Diocesan website and the Church of England website: 

The PCC and Ministry Team will also be exploring other ways we can continue to worship, both individually and collectively, during this period of uncertainty and will keep you updated as we move forward.
