Coronavirus: Archbishop of Canterbury announces Church of England services 'suspended until further notice'
The Archbishop of Canterbury says church services "must be put on hold" in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
Archbishop Justin Welby and the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, say it is now necessary to suspend public worship until further notice, and to live-stream services where possible.
In a joint letter issued today, they said the Church of England must face the challenge by becoming a radically "different sort of church" rooted in prayer and serving others.
