Revd. Janet Allan
Vicar of St Peter & St Paul
Swaffham & St Mary Sporle
Worship in our church buildings - Update
Following updated advice from the Bishop of Norwich, St Mary’s Sporle and St Peter & St Paul Swaffham will not now be open for Sunday worship for the next few weeks. Funerals will, however, go ahead and can continue to be booked (as can emergency weddings).
Sunday services will be live-streamed from Swaffham on the Swaffham Parish Church Facebook page owing to the licences in place and subsequently shared to the Sporle Parish Church Facebook page. It is planned that St Mary’s will be open for individual prayer 11.15-12.15 on Sunday 24th January, in place of the service which would have been held then. Both churches will open for individual prayer at times when they can be kept Covid-safe, but this will inevitably be limited.
