Join FaithAction for a national briefing event for faith communities.

In just a few weeks’ time (currently pencilled in for 21st June), we are set to move into the final phase of the Government’s roadmap, where remaining restrictions are scheduled to be lifted. However, it is looking increasingly uncertain whether this final transition will go ahead as planned, with talk of postponing this date or leaving some restrictions in place. Additionally, through our frequent focus groups with different faith communities, it is clear that concerns still abound.

It is not yet clear, for example, what impact the ‘Indian variant’ of COVID-19 will have, or whether young people will step forward to receive the vaccine at the same impressive rate as the rest of the population. Regardless of when and how ‘complete’ the next easing of restrictions will be, there are many questions about best practice and what is safe that need to be addressed.

Moreover. if restrictions are indeed lifted as planned, without the benchmark set by the government’s places of worship guidance, and the onus then on each of us to exercise wisdom, it is important that we come together to discuss a course of action moving forward.

Join FaithAction at 7pm on Wednesday 16th June for a national briefing event for faith communities, where two members of the places of worship taskforce and public health officials will present some thoughts on how best to move forward through the final phase of the roadmap, followed by an opportunity for Q&A and discussion.
