24 March 2020: The Bench of Bishops of the Church in Wales has issued a Further Pastoral Declaration.  For full text (bilingual) please download the pdf.

Extract about Church buildings
We know that our churches have always been places of sanctuary, peace and wellbeing.  However, it is now clear that health and healing are best served by church buildings being closed.  All church buildings should therefore be closed until further notice. This means churches should not be open for solitary prayer.  Any exception from this action (other than as noted below) should only take place with the diocesan bishop’s express permission.
 
An exception may be made, if necessary, to open church buildings to host existing foodbanks, soup kitchens and homeless shelters.  However, these church buildings should be open for this purpose alone, and all appropriate hygiene precautions should be taken.
 
Extract about Pastoral visiting
Clergy and others duly licensed or commissioned should exercise their pastoral ministry from a distance, by phone and online.  Pastoral visits should only be undertaken because of an extreme pastoral emergency when the presence of a priest or deacon is exceptionally required.  Bishops are able to give advice on what might constitute an extreme pastoral emergency.

Pray for all who suffer, including at this particular time those infected by Covid-19 around the world, for those who care for them, for health specialists and authorities who are combatting the spread of infection, and of course for all who at this time are feeling anxious, especially for those with friends and family in areas or occupations most at risk
