Health and Safety Update - 1st May 2022

Following the recent Scottish Government announcements and further clarification from the Church of Scotland, EPC would like to advise the congregation as follows:

  • There is no need now to ‘sign in’ at a church service.
  • Face coverings and physical distancing are no longer required when attending a church service. However, if you wish to continue to wear a face covering, please feel perfectly free to do so.
  • There is also no requirement to either wear a face covering or physically distance at a wedding or funeral.
  • An area in the church (back right hand side pews downstairs as you enter the church) is reserved for those who wish to physically distance and wear a face covering.

Please continue to use our hand sanitisers.

Hall Users (as separate from worshippers) are asked to continue to wear face coverings until 18th April, as recommended by the Scottish Government.

If you have recently tested positive for COVID and have been in church or with groups in our halls please consider letting the people you have been with know of this. Thank you.

Prayer for Sunday

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.”  

Proverbs 3:5,6

Dear Lord, at this time we remember young people who are sitting exams for the first time.  Please help them to achieve all they aim for, and give them hope for the future and hope in you.  We also pray for newly appointed councillors and ask your guidance and wisdom as they take up new roles.  In Jesus’ name, amen.

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

We are delighted that we are again allowed to open the church for worship. Numbers are no longer restricted and there is no requirement to book in advance. We will, however, still require your contact details for Test and Protect and that you wear a face mask.

Whatsmore, we can, once again, offer tea/coffee after the service at the Carswell Centre...a great chance to catch up with one another. We hope to see you there sometime soon.

We have installed new Audio Visual equipment to allow the Live Streaming of our church services. You can see our current and previous livestreams and videos on our YouTube channel. Unfortunately, the livestream is susceptible to outages, due to signal strength through the thick walls of the church. On the rare occasions where the service is lost on a Sunday morning, please wait whilst we try and re-connect. If all else fails please try again in the evening, by which time we will have uploaded a copy of the service.

For those of you who use Facebook please visit the church page regularly for additional information.

We have had the recent good fortune to have Murdo McTear join with us at Eaglesham Parish Church as our Youth Worker. Murdo can be contacted by email using the address in our contacts section.
