The Bench of Bishops in Wales has issued a pastoral declaration in light of new governmental advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Public Worship and Gatherings

All church services and gatherings for public worship should no longer take place. This includes regular Sunday services and weekday services, as well as occasional offices.


It is vital that baptism continues to be offered to all. Given the guidance on cancellation of public worship, baptisms will no longer take place in the context of regular worship. Baptisms should take place in the presence of no more than ten people (the minister, the candidate and up to eight others including parents/guardians and godparents).


Weddings scheduled until 31 July 2020 should be postponed and any fees already paid refunded. Couples with a later wedding date should be free to cancel/rearrange without financial penalty.


Guidance relating to the ceasing of public worship applies to funerals in church. Clergy may continue to take a funeral service at the graveside and at crematoria (adhering to such guidance as the crematorium authority may give). Once the wider situation makes it safe so to do, the bereaved should be offered opportunities for remembering their loved ones in church at a future date.
