All visitors to both St Tudy and Michaelstow churches  must wear a face covering in Church. 

This is a legal requirement.


While we would love the Church to be open every day, the strict cleaning regime makes this impractical. 

Twice weekly opening allows a 72-hour quarantine period midweek with sanitisation at weekends. 

Visitors are reminded of strict social distancing while following the one-way system and the need to use the hand sanitiser provided when entering and leaving the building. 

To reduce the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 virus some areas, including some pews, are cordoned off and all hymn books, service books, paperwork and kneelers have been removed.  
Although it doesn't look quite the same, it is good to see the Church available for the many people who like to sit quietly and enjoy private prayer and contemplation.

David Seymour has stressed that he is available at anytime of day or night to anyone needing support, advice or prayer. 


His phone number is 01208 850088.

The national Church has suggested these basic ideas for helping us cope with isolation and any feelings of loneliness.

Pray. Light a candle, if safe, and pray for hope, faith and strength to keep loving and caring for each other during this time of struggle.


  • Talk about how you feel. This may be difficult if you are self-isolating, but do use the telephone, internet, and social media. If you need to contact a counsellor this can be arranged by your GP, or via local agencies, or privately. Samaritans are there 24 hours a day, every day, and it’s free to call them on 116 123.


  • Focus on the things that you can change, not on the things you can’t.


  • Look after yourself - physically, emotionally, spiritually. Plan in things that you enjoy at regular intervals during the day – a TV programme, a phone call, a book, a favourite dish, a game.


  • Look after others. Even if only in small ways, but do what you can: a smile, a kind word, writing a letter or an email.
Best wishes. David.
