MARCH & APRIL
Below are listed the diary dates and details of services planned before the outbreak of corona virus and the restrictions in place.
Please note, the Church has been directed by its national office to suspend all such 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 has also been 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’. 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.
