Update: 21 April 2021

Moving from Alert Level 4 to Alert Level 3

A Practical Advice Update

Wales remains at Alert Level 4 but Welsh Government has set out the next anticipated steps of relaxing restrictions towards Alert Level 3.

It is anticipated that from 26 April, if public health conditions permit, the following relaxations will go ahead:

  • organised outdoor activities will be permitted for up to 30 people
  • outdoor wedding receptions will be permitted for up to 30 people
  • outdoor hospitality can open
  • outdoor visitor attractions can open

Precise details of what this will mean are awaited and Church in Wales guidance will be updated as soon as possible after details are published.

We are indebted to both individuals and organisations who provide generous support for the work, music and ministry of this ancient cathedral.
