COVID-19 - Coronavirus Pandemic

After four months of lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19, restrictions are gradually being eased. We must, though, continue to socially distance ourselves from one another to prevent a flare up of the infection and continue to save lives.
Public worship can now take place, but with a number of restrictive rules which, our Priest in Charge and the Churchwardens are keeping under review.
As of Sunday 23 August, a Sunday morning service is being held following these guidelines:
Church Services - Measures to minimise the danger of Covid19

Our three church buildings normally remain CLOSED except for a couple of Private Prayer times and Sunday open service.

      Church of the Ascension in Burghclere
      St Mary the Virgin and St John the Baptist in Newtown
      St Lawrence Church in Ecchinswell

The Church continues to be alive and active. The Life of Prayer continues in our hearts and in our homes.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue and you will find updates on these pages and on our Facebook page Burghclere Church

If you would like us to pray for you please contact Revd Anthony Smith or phone the number on Contacts page.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

To continue to protect the vulnerable amongst us, please stay alert when you do travel, take the precaution to wear a face mask in places busy with people. Preferably stay at home and only make essential trips for food, medicines and to take daily exercise, or to go to work.
The Government asks people "Stay Alert; Control the Virus; Save Lives".

A Prayer about Coronavirus.
