Coronavirus Updates

Last Updated: 5th November

5th November Update:
The new Lockdown restrictions mean that sadly we cannot meet in person for Sunday services in church at the moment, so all our worship will now be online at calverley.church/YouTube.
We will have Sunday worship premiered each week, and we will continue to have Morning Prayer at 8am each weekday, a short service of readings, prayers, and a reflection to help you begin each day with God.

Also, our church will be open for private prayer on Sundays from 10am to 12pm, and you are very welcome to come. When you come, please wear a face covering, use the hand sanitiser on arrival, and observe social distancing. Thank you. Please do not visit if you or anyone in your household have any symptoms of Coronavirus.

We are especially praying for everyone in our community in these challenging times. If you would like to talk to someone, or would like to ask for prayer, please feel free to contact a member of the team at [email protected].


1st September Update:
Our Church is now open for two services each Sunday morning, at 9am (Traditional Communion Service), and at 11am (Contemporary Family Service, with Communion twice a month). The Church will be thoroughly cleaned in-between services. The number of seats available is reduced due to social-distancing measures, but now that we have two services, there is more space. Children are welcome, but they will need to sit with their family at all times. We are not allowed to sing unfortunately, but we will be able to listen to worship music together. When you come, please arrive early, to allow time for checking in, and remember that everyone over the age of 11 needs to wear a face covering.
Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of Coronavirus.


12th July Update:
We are planning to resume public Sunday worship in Church from 2nd August.
Initially there will be just one service each Sunday, at 10am, and the numbers attending will need to be reduced due to social distancing measures.
We realise that many of you will still not be able to attend church in person in August, so we plan to continue providing online worship for the time being, which will be posted on our website every Sunday morning at 9am.
Daily Morning Prayer will also continue to be premiered on our YouTube channel every weekday at 8am.


12th June Update:
We’re pleased to announce that our Church building will be opening for Prayer at selective times.
Physical distancing measures and a cleaning schedule will be in place.

17th March Update:
Following recent guidance, all of our public services are now being temporarily suspended. This means there will be no services on Sunday.
We understand this this is an unsettling time, and are working on ways to support people pastorally over the coming week.


14th March Update:
As a result of guidance issued to Churches, we have very reluctantly decided to cancel Coffee Shop, all Barn Babies sessions, and coffee after services, with immediate effect.
Our Saturday services are also postponed until further notice.
We are so sorry, but it is important that we care for the well-being of everyone in our society by trying to reduce the possibility of rapid transmission and infection.

However, our normal Sunday services are continuing for the moment, with adjustments (eg. only bread will be offered at communion services), and we will post any updates here and on our Facebook page.
