Prayers for those affected
The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Chelmsford Diocese are with those affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak around the world. We pray for those who care for the sick, for those who are combatting the spread of the virus and for those who are worried about friends and loved ones.
Keeping up to date
The Diocese of Chelmsford is sending regular updates about Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our email bulletins. Please sign up here.
Clergy, Church Wardens LLMs, LLWs and Lay Chairs receive additional advice and guidance by email.
In addition, our Archdeacons speak regularly with Area Deans about the the implications of Coronavirus in their own areas. These meetings then feed back to a central Diocesan Communications Group who are overseeing the diocesan response, communications and support for parishes. The group meets weekly and consists of Bishop Peter, the Diocesan Secretary, two of our Archdeacons, the Diocesan Director of Communications and the Director of Operations at Chelmsford Cathedral.
