Coronavirus and our Church

Ongoing "Services"

After the first lockdown, St Lawrence was endeavouring to run occasional Sunday services in Church, but open only to Barlow congregation members due to space and social distancing restrictions. Services were again resumed on the same basis after the second lockdown, but sad to say, they are once again suspended - for the safety of our congregation - during the third lockdown.

The United Benefice is continuing with recorded services being made available on YouTube or Facebook.
The services are being recorded with collated contributions from the three parishes. Please follow this link for the service and the accompanying service sheet.
