Coronavirus COVID-19 update from The Church of England

Following the advice of the Church of England all forthcoming services and events have been cancelled until further notice.

But as they say, we will not be ‘shutting up shop’.  Instead we will be looking to become a ‘different kind of church, one rooted in prayer and serving others’.  More details on how this will happen in Bradninch to follow.

In the meantime the church will remain open during the day.  Please remember though when coming into the church to keep the recommended distance from anyone else who may also be there at the same time.

 

 

Bradninch Together Update

In the light of this evening’s Government update, Wednesday’s meeting has been cancelled.  However, a plan is now in place to ensure that everyone can access help when they need it.

Leaflets will be distributed to all houses in Bradninch and Hele by the end of this week, with co-ordinator contact details and other useful information.

Please see the Bradninch Together webpage for further information.

Bradninch Together

A call for volunteers.

Coronavirus might become a real problem for some people in Bradninch.  So a scheme called ‘Structured Neighbourness’ is being set up with the aim of being able giving practical help as and where needed.

There will be a meeting on Wednesday 18th March in St Disen’s Hall for volunteers to get together (if they want to) to outline details and plan further.
