Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19). But they called on the Church to “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”. It means all Church of England churches will close with immediate effect in line with the Government’s instructions. There will also be no Church weddings or baptisms.

The Church of the Holy Spirit, Southsea is now closed for public worship and private prayer. We must seek to be The Church in other ways. Pray for our Church, our parish and city, our nation, its government, for all who work in the NHS, and for all those who are anxious or fearful at this time.


The Church of the Holy Spirit is a Registered Charity Number 1185260
