Building Works Update

The archaeologists studying the floor at the back of St. Edmund’s nave have uncovered vaults, as well as various pottery pieces and stonework. The Diocese of Worcester’s medial officer paid us a visit recently, and have publish an article on the diocese website; you can read the article here:

Another update concerns the Wednesday Mass. The church will not be open now until 12 PM; if you arrive a church before this time, please wait to be let in.

The Bible is full of references about the resurrection of the dead on the last day. For example Daniel 12:2 in the Hebrew Scriptures, John 5:28-29 in the Gospels, and Revelation 20:12-13 at the end of the New Testament. When we come into church to see the vaults, let us also keep these verses in our minds.

Building Works at St. Edmund’s

Work to remove the plinths, and other items, at the back of the church, will begin on Monday 17th January 2022. Please be aware of the following:

  • When coming to church for the 12:15 PM Mass on Wednesdays, the church will not be open until 11:45 AM, and everyone will be required to leave the church by 1 PM; this is to ensure that the contractors can continue with the required work.
  • The church will remain closed on Thursday mornings until further notice.
  • Please follow all instructions given by the contractors when entering, leaving, and moving around the church.
  • Mass on Sundays will continue as usual at 11 AM.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our services.
