WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
We will return to worship in the church building from Sunday 16 May at 11am, unless there are any last minute changes in restrictions on gathering for worship. We look forward to welcoming you to the service – either in person or online as is appropriate to your circumstances.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES WHEN ATTENDING SERVCES
Please remember to observe 1 metre physical distancing at all times, and do not attend if you are displaying Covid symptoms. There is no need to book a place but please be prepared to give your contact details for Trace and Protect purposes. In line with government guidance we strongly advise that you do a Lateral Flow Test before attending. These are available at local pharmacies or online at https://www.gov.uk/
In the service itself, we are still required to wear face coverings, however singing is permitted. If you are exempt from wearing a face covering please speak to the Minister or Session Clerk to discuss the best way to ensure everyone’s safety if you are singing. We will also be making sure that people come in and out in a way that minimises the possibility for contact and with the seats set out to maintain 1 metre physical distancing. The balcony remains out of use.
TELEPHONE BOOKING SERVICE
(As we are now at 1m Distancing, this service is suspended)
The Sunday service continues to be available, streamed on YouTube.

We are now worshipping together both online and in the church building. While singing is allowed, we are still required to wear face masks.
Session fully understands that some folks may continue to join in from home for the time being. Whilst meeting and worshipping together is an important part of "being church" it is also important for folks to consider their own personal safety as the Covid situation continues. Please continue to be very open with your elder about your thoughts on this. Alternatively please email the Minister or Session Clerk on the addresses to the left of this page. Your valuable responses will be fed into any discussions had by Session concerning future moves.
