Government advice was updated on 12 April and now states:

  • You can go to places of worship for a service. When a service is taking place indoors you must not mingle with anyone outside of your household or support bubble. You should maintain social distancing at all times, staying 2 metres apart from anyone who is not in your household or support bubble.
  • When a service is taking place outdoors, you must not mingle in groups larger than 6, except for groups from up to 2 households (a household can include an existing support bubble, if eligible). You should maintain strict social distancing from other groups and households at all times.
  • You should follow the national guidance on the safe use of places of worship.

Guidance around weddings, civil partnerships, religious services and funerals is also available

  • No more than 15 people (of any age) can be at a wedding, civil partnership ceremony or reception. Anyone working is not counted in these limits. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.  
  • There is further guidance for small marriages and civil partnerships.
