Opening the churches

We are now allowed to open the churches for private prayer only. Initially, it has been decided to open the churches in the benefice at particular times of the day, so that the buildings might be discretely supervised and surfaces cleaned after each visit. When you visit one of our churches there will be someone in church to welcome you, guide you to an area where you will be able to sit quietly and also answer any questions you may have.

The following are the current times of opening, but it is hoped that as more people volunteer to supervise, we may be able to offer more times.

Compton – Wednesday from 9 am to 10 am, Sunday from 11 am to 12 noon
Hursley – Saturday from 10 am to 11 am (from 27th June)
Otterbourne – every Monday to Friday from 9 am to 10 am.

Please check the News page regularly for updates on changes to these times.
