With great regret we have to publish this statement from the Church of England, dated 17 March 2020:
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling for Church of England churches to put public worship on hold and become a “different sort of church” in the coming months to face the challenge of coronavirus.
In a joint letter, Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu said it was now necessary to put public services on hold until further notice.
But they said that far from having to “shut up shop”, the Church of England must face the challenge by becoming a radically different kind of church rooted in prayer and serving others.
In the light of this all public services of worship Axmouth Church are cancelled until further notice and the church building is temporarily closed
