Anglican Church suspends services

Sunday services has been called off for Bermuda's Anglican Churches, its leader said today.

The Right Reverend Nicholas Dill, the Bishop of Bermuda, said the church would temporarily seek “different ways of uniting in worship and prayer” after arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bishop Dill said churchgoers should follow the Government's updates on www.gov.bm.

He said: “When we have a hurricane approaching, we say ‘stay at home, keep safe and look out for your neighbours.' Consider this period in the same light.”

A service at the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity in Hamilton will be live streamed at 10am on Sundays on The Anglican Church of Bermuda — Episcopal Facebook page, at www.facebook.com/anglicanbda/.

Services will also be broadcast live on ZBM 105.1.

The Anglican Cathedral will be open from 8am to 4pm during the week for private prayer, and on Sundays outside of the recording for the service.

Bishop Dill said the church had contacted all of its members by e-mail or telephone to offer help or “a listening ear”.

The Diocesan Office can be contacted on 292-6987.

Bishop Dill asked for the country to unite for a moment of prayer at 7pm this Sunday.

He added: “As a sign of solidarity, please light a candle in the window or display a flag.”

Bishop Dill said the normal schedule of services start when the Government said it was safe and that the public would be updated.
