Dear Friends


In response to the number of Covid infections in Swindon and the pressure on our local hospital, the P.C.C, Covid response working group had a very positive and honest meeting on Wednesday 27th January and as a result, the decision was taken to continue to close for public worship at Christ Church and St Mary’s.

The church however will remain open daily for personal prayer and Sunday services will continue to be recorded and made available each week on our CC website.

We will remain closed for public worship during February including Ash Wednesday 17th February. However, a recorded service will be made available as we enter into Lent and look forward to Easter.

We are planning and praying in the hope that we will be able to reopen for public worship on Sunday 7th March for a weekly 10am service at Christ Church and a monthly 9 am service at St Mary’s on the fourth Sunday of the month.

This decision will be reviewed when we next meet on Tuesday 23rd February.

Please be aware of our friendship support and prayers. Do contact a member of the staff team at any time, so our Keeping in Touch pastoral (KIT) scheme members can do all they can to support you practically and spiritually. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly by phone (529166) or email and join me in praying for God’s blessing and guidance for all who those who live and work in our Old Town Swindon parish including our Old Town Partnership,

Thank you for all your support,

Every blessing Simon
