Following the announcement by the Prime Minister of new restrictions to limit the spread of Covid-19, the Bishop of London, Sarah Mullally, chair of the Church of England’s Recovery Group said:

“We have heard with others the announcement from the Prime Minister this evening of a second national ‘lockdown’ in England and how this will affect the life of our communities and public worship.

“We will study the detailed regulations and continue to liaise with Government departments to offer clarity to churches.

“This is a time of real uncertainty for everyone and the Church will continue to be central to the life of our communities in bringing light and hope.”
