The Church of England’s Mission and Public Affairs division has published advice to parishes on practical steps to reduce the risk of infection from Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The guidance, written by Dr Brendan McCarthy, the Church of England’s Adviser on health issues, drawing on the latest Government advice, is available on a dedicated web page which will be updated as necessary.

It recommends incorporating simple precautions into worship services, particularly during the celebration of the Eucharist.

The situation will be kept under close review and updated advice will be made available if necessary.
