Churches Begin Re-opening

As I’m sure you will be aware by now, the government has said that we may open our church buildings for individual private prayer. There are strict protocols around how we open and the cleaning that is required. Our churchwardens have considered all the implications and each church has decided what is manageable, safe and sensible for them to do. When visiting any of the churches we request you follow the set guidance:

  • Sanitise your hands before you enter the church and again when you leave.
  • Respect social distancing and remain 2 metres apart.
  • Only use the designated area of the church.    

There will also be a maximum number permitted in the building at any one time, please check the notices in each church.All of these details are of course subject to change as the government guidance changes.

Opening times ( for now are):
Barningham: Sundays 10am – 4pm
Coney Weston: Daily 10am – 5pm  from 21st June
Hepworth: Will remain closed 
Hinderclay: Daily 9.30am – 4pm 
Hopton: Daily 9am – 5pm 
Market Weston: Sundays 10am – 4pm
Stanton: Daily 8am – 6pm

If the church in your village is not open or not open at a time that suits you, you are very welcome to come to any of the churches in the Benefice.
