COVID-19: Faith group updates

Guidance for safe worshipping and the use of religious spaces

You can attend places of worship for a service. However, you must not mingle with anyone outside of your household or support bubble. You should maintain strict social distancing at all times.

Visit the GOV.UK website for further information on the new guidance and restrictions on places of worship.

Please contact your place of worship directly for specific information on the rules and regulations in place and to ensure your visit is in keeping with government guidelines.


It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines during Ramadan. This includes no sharing of food inside mosques during Iftar and strict guidelines on capacity for Taraweeh prayers. If you’re fasting it is also still important to take up the offer of a vaccine. 

Guidance for faith leaders can be found on The Muslim Council of Britain’s guide to Ramadan

More information about vaccinations and fasting can be found on the British Islamic Medical Association website
