How the Pandemic is impacting on our Parish:
St James Church, Emsworth is closed for public worship.
St Thomas a Becket, Warblington will remain closed from 1st February to allow building work to be undertaken. Access to the building for worship will be very limited until mid-2021.
Funerals, Weddings & Baptisms
Weddings can currently go ahead, but only with 6 people in attendance. Government guidance recommends that: “Where possible, these should only take place in exceptional circumstances, for example, an urgent marriage where one of those getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.”
Funerals can go ahead but please click here for more information from the Church of England website.

Rules are changing quite rapidly, so it would be wise to contact the Parish Office with any query regarding a funeral, wedding, or baptism.
The Parish Hall
The Parish Hall is currently closed.
If you have a query about booking the hall for an event later in the year, please do contact the Parish Office.
