Closed for public worship

The Rector and PCCs of St. Nicholas Barton Le Clay, St Margaret’s Higham Gobion, and St. Faith’s Hexton have sought permission from the Bishop of St. Albans and passed resolutions to close each church for public worship on safety grounds due to the COVID19 pandemic, with the exception of weddings and funerals, as allowed for in the guidance issued by the Church of England, on its website, until such time it is safe to re-open them.

That permission has now been granted, provided each PCC regularly reviews the decision it has taken.
