The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close.
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore as well as public worship being suspended, St Peter and St Paul Wincanton and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in the Church building currently.
Rev Alison Way, our Rector, can be contacted in an emergency on 01963 33151 or 07515 958988. Sadly use of the parish office will be suspended so please don’t leave phone messages there. Our Administrator, Rachel Feltham will be working from home so please use email to contact her.
