Reopening of places of worship

On Friday 12th June, the Government released its official guidance for places of worship in England, ahead of the allowance of individual prayer from Saturday 13th June.

The Government has announced new guidance for places of worship in England, which will come into effect from Saturday 4th July.

MHCLG have produced a helpful poster to be placed outside of places of worship, containing the key advice necessary to keep your congregation safe once you begin to reopen.

We’re also collecting good practice released by faith groups, representative bodies, and supporting organisations.

General guidance regarding coronavirus

At FaithAction, we’ve been collating together all the information, advice and guidance from across the sector and beyond about this pandemic that is of interest to faith groups and communities.

This includes guidance specifically related to faith and its practices, plus guidance covering wider issues, from mental health to bereavement.

Reporting of coronavirus regulation breaches

If you believe that there has been a serious breach of coronavirus regulations, you may report an incident to your local police force.

While you may always call 101 for non-urgent police matters, many forces are urging people to instead use online reporting methods where possible due to the increased pressures of the pandemic.

We’ve put together a list of links to these online reporting tools, where available.
