The Rector, Revd Nicholas Mercer writes:
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister last night that there should be “no more non-essential contact with others” for a period of twelve weeks, I have made the decision this morning to cancel, with immediate effect
St Cuthbert’s Lecture
These are “non-essential” and there is an obvious risk of infection.
I will also be cancelling the Guides Meeting on Thursday and […] all guiding will be suspended until September
There are numerous other decisions to make and […] Mothering Sunday will not be taking place on Sunday either ( I will probably hold an “ordinary” service of Holy Communion for the few who might attend). This will be confirmed as soon as I receive further guidance.
This is an unprecedented situation and is still being clarified as we speak. I anticipate confusion but will try and be as clear as possible. The website will be our main source of communication.
Thank you for all your assistance
