The extra restrictions placed on Horninglow and some other areas of Burton concerning worship have been relaxed.  We have re-started worship in church on Sundays at the 10 am Service and on Wednesdays at the 9.30 am Mass.

Members of the congregation must maintain social distancing. Alternate rows of pews are taped off.  Family bubbles may arrive and sit together, but must avoid the usual mingling with other worshippers.  People should wear masks unless they have a certified exemption or are conducting a part of the service

On Sunday mornings, to make sure that we do not exceed capacity, it would help if you inform the Parish Administrator, Sue Oakes on 512539 or

Booking is not required for Wednesday Services.

If you are over 70 years old you need to be aware that you are at more risk through infection from Covid-19 than younger people.

Sunday services will continue to be broadcast live at 10am on Facebook and available from 11.00 on YouTube.
