City Church opening hours

On 17 March 2020, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York instructed all the churches in their jurisdiction to suspend public services until further notice; nationwide lockdown followed six days later. Churches gradually reopened from 4 July 2020, most with limited hours and services. London went into lockdown again on 5 November 2020, into Tier 2 on December 3, Tier 3 on December 16 and Tier 4 on December 20. Click here for current COVID-19 guidance for churches from the Church of England.

With London under new Tier 4 regulations, some churches will be open for private prayer and regular services, but worshippers are strongly advised to check with the individual church for current hours and conditions: Web sites and contact details through the links below. Many churches now broadcast services online. The links below are correct to 20 December 2020, but please check the individual churches' Web sites for current information.
