Church Growth Trust has been following the guidance regularly provided by the government around COVID-19 and the second in our series of new and helpful briefing papers to support and guide churches is covering the opening up of church buildings for worship.
From 4 July 2020 in England the government is allowing places of worship to opened up for public worship. There are still a number of restrictions in place and detailed guidance from the government has been provided on how this should operate. This briefing paper sets out some of the government guidelines and aims to make these understandable and accessible for churches; particularly for independent churches. Government guidelines may change and the most up to date guidelines should be adhered to.
