The announcement was made on Tuesday in a letter written by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, Justin Welby and John Sentamu respectively, urging that public services should be put on hold as it is a necessity.
They wrote: “Our life is going to be less characterized by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterized by the prayer and service we offer each day,”
