Coronavirus (COVID-19) is placing unprescedented and dynamic challenges on individuals, organisations and churches across the UK and beyond.
The Scottish Episcopal Church is following national guidelines and this is having an impact on how we are able to worship. On 24 March, we suspended all public services in our church buildings in an attempt to help prevent the spread of the virus.
In early August we reopened the church building to host Sunday services. However, strict measures are in place to protect attendees and prevent the spread of coronavirus. There is a limit on the number of attendees who can be in the building to ensure that social distancing requirements can be met. Anyone attending the building is also required to wear a mask in the building. We therefore strongly encourage anyone who wishes to attend a Sunday service at 11.30am to indicate to us in advance by e-mailing John Mitchell at: John.Mitchell16@ntlworld.com. Any spaces left on the day will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
We recognise that this change at such a challenging time will be daunting and would encourage as many people as possible to pray with us for the world and those affected by the virus.
