All church services and meetings are cancelled until further notice. In the meantime please feel free to visit the resources below or browse our website.
For those of you who use Facebook please visit the church page regularly for additional information.
For those without access to online communications we can share worship by telephone now. If you call 01355681661 you can hear John Lloyd's sermon. Callers are charged a local call rate for this.
We are hosting post-worship coffee meetings using Zoom at 11.30 every Sunday. Please message via Facebook for details of how to join us as we meet again as a congregation - even if only virtually for now. Looking forward to seeing all those who can join us!
The Church of Scotland have a list on their website of churches that regularly livestream services or offer them as downloadable recordings. This is not a definitive list. Please bear in mind that, given the current situation, some of these services may not go ahead.
The Covid-19 pandemic has not helped the church finances. Despite the fact of furloughing employees the vast majority of our outgoings remain the same without the benefit of income from hall lets and other fund-raising activities.
If you could consider a donation to the church this would be greatly appreciated. This can easily be done through Just Giving.
If anyone is finding social isolation difficult we have people who are ready and eager to help either practically, emotionally or with prayer. Please contact your elder or Sheila Lamont , Session Clerk, if you would like to access this support.
With the current crisis we recognise that the work of the foodbank will be increasingly important. To help with this we now have received agreement from ERC Environmental Health department to open the Carswell Centre for donations to the foodbank. The Carswell Centre will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11.00 until 12.00 to receive donations. In line with guidance and to protect all concerned, the doors of the Carswell Centre will be open so that donations can be placed inside without touching any surfaces. The donations will be taken the following week (i.e. Leaving a minimum of 72 hours untouched) to the distribution centre. We are glad to be able to support this essential work during this period of crisis.
Please remember to pray for our church, our community, our country and the world during this difficult time. Especially for those working to find solutions and those working hard to support us through this time. If you feel that you or a loved one would benefit from prayer support feel free to complete the form on our Prayer Request page
