It is with great reluctance that we have taken the decision to close the church temporarily. This will begin after 10.30 mass this weekend. We remain a safe place to gather and worship thanks to our brilliant stewards who have been working so hard. However, in being open and inviting parishioners to attend we are clearly defying the government, the NHS and the country’s medical experts, who plead with us all to “stay at home”. It is our intention to open up again after the peak of the wave of infections has passed over us in Bexley. We owe it to our heroic doctors and nurses to do all we can in the meantime. Our Sunday Mass will still be available on the website. I not only thank our stewards, but so many others who have improvised so well in their ministries in these difficult times and I thank everyone for cooperating so willingly.
We will continue to have a video recording of the Sunday Mass available on this website http://www.stjohnfisherbexley.org via the links on the ‘Newsletter’, ‘Fr Doug’ and ‘Sunday Mass’ pages.
