The Friends of Melbourne Parish Church –
2020 events updated in response to the coronavirus crisis – 5 June 2020

It is with great regret that we have had to postpone the final planned Friends’ event for 2020: the jazz evening with the Ben Crosland quintet.

Not only were we unsure about how public gatherings would operate in October, band members with vulnerable relatives were also concerned about rehearsing and performing before they felt safe to do so.

The good news is that we have agreed, conditions permitting, to host the band in the autumn of 2021.

In the meantime, our wonderful building sadly remains closed to visitors and worshippers alike. The good news is that an inspection by the Rector, who is allowed to enter, has revealed that all is well inside. We all look forward very much to Melbourne Parish Church reopening in better times.
