Faith leaders will be liaising with the UK government to come up with a plan on how and when to re-open churches.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government Robert Jenrick said he will be meeting with religious leaders to plan the reopening of places of worship, whether for public worship or individual prayer.
He told the Downing Street daily briefing that private prayer could be allowed in places of worship before they are opened up to the public.
Under the Government’s plans places of worship in England are not expected to open before 4th July at the earliest.
Mr Jenrick said he was leading the ministerial task force looking at “when and how places of worship can open safely for some of the practices where social distancing can take place”.
