In light of the coronavirus epidemic, services within the Benefice have been suspended.
For as long as this continues there will be a weekly celebration of the Eucharist in Our Lady Saint Mary, South Creake each Sunday at 10:30 am. However, this is NOT an invitation to attend but I would encourage you to join me either via the Benefice Facebook page (@creakebenefice) where the service will be streamed live or in an act of spiritual communion. Attached here is a document which may aid your devototion in this respect.
All the churches will remain open daily as usual for private prayer. Should you enter a church and find another person there, please remember to follow the national guidance of ensuring that you maintain approximatelt 2 metres distance from that person.
