St Nicolas Parish Church and St Wilfrid’s chapel-of-ease Pevensey
Coronavirus – St Nicolas and St Wilfids’ Churches
Last updated 4th July, 2020
Public Worship Services to recommence
The big story of the week, of course, is that from 4th July churches can reopen for worship. From Sunday (5th July), both churches will be open for services at the normal time. The Standing Committee met on Monday 29th June, to draw up risk assessments for each church, and to make provisional plans for Sunday.
St Nicolas Church is open daily for private prayer and contemplation. For those making use of this facility please follow the usual protocols about social distancing and hand washing.
Funerals are allowed in church, with numbers of mourners limited and social distancing applied.
Weddings and baptisms can also take place, but again with limited numbers and social distancing protocols applied.
Further details are available on the Church of England website.
Father Tony will continue to produce the Weekly Pew sheet and a copy can be found here on the News and Reviews page.
Parishioners and Church Members can rest assured that so long as they maintain phone or electronic contact with members of the church community, they will be supported in whatever practical and spiritual ways are appropriate.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The following is a copy of the letter sent out by the Vicar and Churchwardens regarding cancellation of all events until further notice due to the coronavirus situation.

We are open and welcoming to all, as you’ll find out if you join us after a service for some tea, coffee and biscuits. Our facilities include wheelchair access.
If you’re in the area and want to join in, our main service is on Sundays. Feel free to take part as much or as little as you want. We have many visitors from other churches and some that have never set foot inside a church before. You are welcome to just come to have a look.
If you are planning a wedding, christening or funeral, the churchwardens can help you. Please contact us for further information and advice.
