The Moderator of the General Assembly of The Church of Scotland, along with the leaders of all our Churches, has called for us to join together as a nation on Palm Sunday at 7.00pm where together we can pray for our communities, our nation and our world at this difficult time.
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic The Church of Scotland has called for all gatherings for worship to cease until further notice. This will include Sunday worship, house groups, youth groups and social gatherings – and will include all Easter services.
These are difficult and stressful times for us all and more than ever we need to be mindful of how we can offer support to one another and continue to hold one another up in prayer. So, in addition to your own loved ones, please hold our church, our community, our nation and indeed all who are most affected by this virus in your prayers asking for God’s love to guide, support and encourage us all at this time. The Church of Scotland in line with other churches has called for us to participate in a National Day Of Prayer, this coming Sunday the 22nd of March. So please join us for that at 7.00pm when together we can all come before the Lord.
In accordance with advice given by Presbytery in response to the coronavirus pandemic, all events other than Sunday worship will be suspended for the time being.
This includes the prayer meeting and the Bible study, the choir, youth groups and Friendly Friday, and also applies to the Brownies and Guides who also use the church.
Any further developments will be posted on the Web site as and when they occur but if anyone has any questions please contact the Minister.
