Statement on coronavirus from the New Room/John Wesley’s Chapel, Bristol
Following the Government’s decision to place England into a National lockdown from Tuesday 5 January, the New Room will remain closed. This includes the chapel, museum, café, library & archive, and Horsefair Room. All of our planned events and community activities will not take place at the New Room but will continue online where possible, such as our weekly Emmaus service.
This closure decision will be revisited following any changes in government guidance and, once it is appropriate to do so, we will re-open the site as soon as practically possible ensuring social distancing measures are in place. Please check our website and social media channels for the latest updates and we look forward to welcoming people to the site again soon.
Like many other charities, museums and cultural venues across the UK, the New Room is now in a financially challenged position. As we face uncertain times ahead, we need your support more than ever. If you are able to, please consider donating towards the work of the New Room through PayPal here.
