During the Covid-19 pandemic

This News Post summarises how services and activities in the Beacons Benefice are affected, and what’s still here to help you.  More details are given on the During Covid-19 webpage.

 

WHAT HAS STOPPED

During the Covid-19 pandemic, in line with Welsh Government and Church in Wales requirements, all public church services and public gatherings in our churches have ceased and our church buildings remain closed except Llangors Church in our Ministry Area and the Cathedral in Brecon.  See the During Covid-19 webpage for more details about opening times.
