Resulting from recent decisions by the Kirk Session, we can advise as follows:

  • People are very welcome to wear face coverings in all our buildings, but this is not mandatory
  • Please do not attend our buildings if you have COVID symptoms
  • Consider getting a vaccine if you are offered this 
  • Take a LFD Test before visiting someone in a hospital or care home
  • You are encouraged to wear a face covering on public transport and in indoor public spaces
  • Maintain good hand hygiene

Prayer for Sunday

“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.”

Thank you, Lord that you are our good Father, and that you care for us and answer our prayers. Please continue to bless the families in our church and community, giving them wisdom and patience in their care for others, whether young or old.  Thank you that you also give the lonely a place in your family; may they feel the warmth and welcome of your love.  We pray in thanks to Jesus, amen.

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.
