Private Prayer
Burghclere church is now open everyday from before 10.00 am to after 4.00 pm.

      Post Coronavirus, Covid-19.
On July 19 2021 the UK government ended the majority of the mandatory Covid-19 restrictions. In England, the legal requirement to wear a face covering ended.
But government guidance says it "expects and recommends" the continued wearing of masks and maintaining some social distance in crowded areas.

Seating
In our churches the seats to the rear of the church will be reserved for those who wish to wear a mask and sit socially distanced.
The front seats will be for those who are happy not to wear a mask. Singing is permitted.
We hope this will allow everyone to feel confident about coming to church.
