Services available from churches

COVID-19 continues affect how we can observe the many special occasions in faith calendars.

All faiths continue to make changes to how they will mark festivals, celebrations, commemorations and other special occasions.

The strict infection control measures required also limit close contact with people who are dying or have recently died, so it may not be possible for faith representatives to perform some or all of the usual rituals.
