Church closure: an update

It is over two months since we closed the doors of our church buildings as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. We are delighted that we can now plan towards a gradual reopening over the coming months. We continue to follow the guidance provided by the Government, the Church of England and the Diocese of Ely.

We believe in life in all its fullness. In the current situation, that means that we need to keep everyone who will be using the church, safe. We are currently working through the guidance to see how and when we can safely open our churches for individual prayer, and ensure that the necessary health and safety measures are taken (regular cleaning, social distancing etc). Until this has been done in the best way possible, our buildings will remain closed.

The church, however, is not closed. There are regular acts of worship posted on the North Leightonstone website, and the North Leightonstone Facebook Group. Our ministers – Mandy, Fiona, Jim and Kim – are available to talk or offer prayer (currently over the phone). Contact details can be found on the website (

We are looking forward to welcoming you back into St Michael’s church shortly.

PLEASE NOTE: Little Gidding church is closed, and shrouded, for some months to come while the roof is being restored. Unfortunately this means there is no possibility of visiting it. Ferrar House is also closed at present.
