The Hilfield Community is all well. We thank you for your prayers over the past months as we have prayed for you.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future. However, to ensure everyone’s safety, we will be complying with the Government and Church of England Guidelines for public worship and gatherings. This will mean there will be several changes to the way we do things. For instance, initially we won’t be able to have as many guests. All of these changes will be explained when you arrive.

We are hoping to open all our accommodations from the beginning of October. We will begin taking bookings from Thursday 1st October, provided it is within Government advice at that time.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back and being able to catch up with our friends.
