I am offering to volunteer in my local parish to make it safe for the community to access the Church again.

By submitting this form I understand that my name and email will be sent to my diocese.

If you have a health condition which makes you particularly vulnerable to Covid-19, please don’t volunteer, we’ve got this – but please keep us in your prayers.

Thank you to the Bishops of England Wales and Scotland for working with the Government to find ways to reopen our churches in a safe way! We know you recognise that access to the sacraments is of vital importance to all the faithful.  

We understand that reopening churches safely is not going to be easy, so we would like to help in any way we can: disinfecting churches, maintaining social distancing procedures, arranging access timetables, and anything else that might be necessary.


Open Church Doors is an initiative by a small group of lay Catholics who are faithful to the Church and wish to support our bishops and priests. 

The site is designed to make it quick and easy for Catholics to show their support of the Church and to be able to express their ability to help reopen churches in as safe a manner as possible. It is also designed to enable dioceses and parishes to see if they already have the manpower needed to re-open. 

Use of data: We only take you name, email and church, for the above purposes. It’s simple. You can read our privacy policy here
