Three church communities in the beautiful Test Valley, coming together to encourage one another in faith, to bless our communities and to engage with and pray for the wider world.
The churches of the Anna Benefice are open for private prayer:
Churches revised opening times: From the 27th July 2020, the churches will usually be open as follows:
Monday: All Saints Upper Clatford 10am - 4pm* Tuesday: St Peter Goodworth Clatford 10am - 4pm Wednesday: St Mary Abbotts Ann 2pm -7.30pm Thursday: All Saints Upper Clatford 10 - 4pm Friday: St Peter Goodworth Clatford 10am - 4pm
We are pleased to be able to take this first step towards reopening our churches more fully. All visitors will be welcomed and asked to wash or sanitise their hands before sitting socially distanced from other visitors not from their own house-hold. On arrival we will also ask you for your name and a contact phone number or email, in case it is needed for contact tracing at a later date. We will otherwise leave you undisturbed in peace and quiet.
From Saturday 8th August it will be mandatory to wear face coverings in all places of worship where there may be other people present. The advice highlights that face coverings are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.
