Coronavirus Update: Churches to close from Friday 08 January
The First Minister has announced new lockdown measures that will result in the closure of churches from Friday (08 January).
What the First Minister said today (04 January):
“A number of other measures will come into effect on Friday. It is with real regret that we consider it necessary for places of worship to close during this period for all purposes except broadcasting a service, or conducting a funeral, wedding or civil partnership. I am well aware of how important communal worship is to people. But we believe that this restriction is necessary to reduce the risk of transmission. While up to 20 people will still be able to attend funeral services, wakes will not be possible during January. And a maximum of five people will be able to attend wedding and civil partnership services.”
