Under the current, January 2021, lockdown church buildings can be open for services.  However the Essex Health Department and Church of England recommend temporary closure of Church buildings to limit the risk of transmission of coronavirus.  As a result at a meeting of the PCC on Tuesday 12th January, the PCC voted unanimously to suspend services in our church building up to and including February 14th.  This decision will be reviewed at the next PCC meeting on February 16th.  Services will once again be available online.  To find out more please visit our Facebook page St Mary the Virgin North Shoebury | Facebook
