St Gregory's Parish Church, Sudbury Suffolk
Special Information About Corona Virus
In order to protect the public from the spread of Coronavirus as much as possible the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have made the decision to close churches for public worship. Here is an extract from their letter:
“Our life is going to be less characterised by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterised by the prayer and service we offer each day.
“We may not be able to pray with people in the ways that we are used to, but we can certainly pray for people. And we can certainly offer practical care and support.
Our ministry team will continue to pray and will be keeping in touch with the regular congregation to ensure everyone is safe and well. We are also available for practical needs such as fetching shopping/medicines and for pastoral support.
Please contact us on the numbers below or email email@example.com.
We are part of conversations in the town about how to work together to support the most vulnerable of our neighbours, and will keep you posted about that.
From next Sunday there will be the opportunity to join in worship in the diocese digitally- see our diocesan homepage
You can also receive encouragement from the Bishops by joining them for Morning Prayer via Facebook Mon-Fri at 8.30am. on
Here is a prayer you may like to use during this crisis
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy. Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up those who are brought low that we might find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen
