The Church of England has issued a series of updates to its guidance in relation to COVID-19, following the move to Step 3 in England. A more extensive easing of restrictions is expected next month when England is due to move to Step 4 on the Government’s reopening roadmap.
The following documents have been updated:
- Individual private prayer;
- Permitted Activities under national ‘step’ regulations; and
- Conducting public worship.
The FAQ on Is singing permitted? in the Prayer and Worship section has also been updated.

The Church of England has posted From listening services to food deliveries– churches step up support to local communities during pandemic which states:” More than 4,000 Church of England parishes are estimated to have stepped up their support to local communities in the face of rising levels of poverty, loneliness and isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to new research published today”.

Very glad & heartening to learn about the assistance provided to the poor & needy during the pandemic times.This fact about community service should be highlighted and media informed.
