At home religion, faith and worship resources
Many local places of worship are now safely open. Some continue to offer virtual services, reflections and guidance. Please check your local faith organisation's website or social media page for further details on safely attending in person, virtual services and support available.
Supporting the safe reopening of faith buildings
Places of worship play an important role in providing spiritual leadership for many people, and in bringing communities and generations together. However, their communal nature also makes them places that are particularly vulnerable to the spread of Covid-19.
In June, the government enabled places of worship to start to safely reopen for individual prayer.
Currently, places of worship can open provided they do so in a manner that is COVID-19 secure and in line with social distancing guidelines.
Please read the government's guidance for the safe use of places of worship during the pandemic for more information.
