Worship during the coronavirus infection
Update: 23 March 2020
During the current health risks of spreading the Coronavirus (Covid-19), public worship is suspended with the exception of funerals and the church building locked.
This does not mean that the church is retreating from the community. Quite the opposite: we are exploring new ways to bring church in to your life, whether you are fully self isolating or refusing your contact with others. As a United Benefice of the parishes of Eccleston, St Mary the Virgin and Charnock Richard, Christ Church, we will continue to pray for you daily and will provide an online eucharist at 11:30 each Wednesday and at 09:30 on Sunday in line with our regular service patterns. Both parish churches will closed from Tueday 24 March in line with the government's restrictions on leaving home. We will be maintaining enhanced telephone contact and support with all regular worshippers and those who wish to be contacted.
Most importantly, if you are concerned and anxious please contact Father Andrew on 01257 452777 or by email at email@example.com so he can discuss the most appropriate support for you. We have received offers from parishioners to undertake shopping for those unable to get out and in need. Please contact us if you require this help.
