Churches in Wales to Close for Three Sundays in National Lockdown team | 19 October 2020

Churches in Wales will be closing as part of a two week ‘firebreak’ to stop the spread of coronavirus, reports Premier.

The Welsh Cabinet have decided to enforce a ‘short, sharp shock’ to slow down the virus, which will start at 6pm this Friday.

The national lockdown covers the half-term school holidays and will end on 9th November.

Everyone will be required to stay at home and work at home unless their work is essential or cannot be done at home.

All non-essential retail and tourism will close as it did in March.

Places of worship, including churches, will close for two weeks as well, other than for funerals or wedding ceremonies.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
