Please note, the Church has been directed by its national office to suspend all services and meetings.
Since Wednesday 18th March, 2020, the Church of Scotland in conference with the Scottish Government has enforced emergency powers in order to protect our safety and has cancelled all services in church buildings throughout the land. Recent instruction was put in place to ‘cancel all gatherings both large and small in church buildings for worship and social events, meetings, house groups and regular cafes until further notice’.
As of 15th July, however the Scottish Government has instructed restrictions on ‘social distancing’, singing is not permitted in church, sanitising of worship areas and the wearing of masks which remain in place in compliance with ‘Phase 3’ of the national ‘lock down’. Worship is only possible that complies with these restrictions and for very limited numbers. The national office of the Church of Scotland is expected to make further announcements about the ‘capping’ of congregational numbers (where limited worship applies) until all restrictions are removed in ‘Phase 4’.
Our Minister is in daily conference with the Church of Scotland’s ‘Covid-19’ briefings to the Faith and Nurture Forum at Edinburgh who are giving daily updates and briefings and advice to the church’s clergy.
(see ‘Home Page’ of this website for further information)
Please note, in compliance with emergency measures and instruction from the Church of Scotland, meetings are suspended until further notice. We will continue to plan and maintain the business of the church by email and all our office bearers and members will receive updates of business and be notified immediately of any change affecting these measures and emerging developments.
We hope to resume our services and church activities as soon as it is safe to do so but, please note in view of the current national ‘lock down’ restrictions continuing during ‘Phase 3’ and, until further notice, all meetings and social gatherings at the church and hall are currently postponed.
The Church of Scotland in Fort Augustus and Glengarry extends a warm welcome to visitors and families of our two communities. There are a wide range of Sunday Club activities for children attending any of the regular church services with their parents. All our leaders are fully disclosed and aim to make this a time of fellowship and fun for you and your whole family. This is arranged for families at Fort Augustus and Glengarry Parish Churches during worship. Please contact the Minister if you need any further information (tel: 01320 366210).
