We are open for worship
Following the easing of some of the restrictions and having completed all the appropriate risk assessments we were able to re-open for Worship on Sunday the 30th of August at a reduced capacity.
We are currently only permitted to have a maximum of 50 for worship including the minister, ushers, volunteers assisting with the service, musicians, and children from the Sunday Club. There are still many restrictions in place but we welcome this news to once again come together in faith.
The First Minister announced that from Saturday 8 August 2020 the wearing of face coverings in places of worship will be mandatory. The worship leader is exempt from wearing a face covering when they are leading worship, provided additional safeguards are in place where physical distancing and/or a protective screen or barrier is in place. We continue to follow and adhere to the all relevant guidance after legislation is published by the Scottish Government and the Church nationally updates its information and guidance.
We are not currently permitted to sing and we must continue to practice good hand hygiene and physical distancing.
We are also obliged to keep a temporary register of attendance for the Test and Protect NHS service in case of any potential Covid-19 outbreaks.
To help us we are now able to live stream our service of worship each Sunday on our Youtube channel and can overspill into our large hall to facilitate 50 people in total.
Please follow us on Youtube Channel where our services will also be recorded.
We ask that you kindly refrain from attending if you have any new cough symptoms, fever, loss of taste or smell and advise that you contact the NHS on 111 for testing.
