Welcome to our website

Hello to all visiting our website at this uncertain time. May I wish you all health and strength and patience in the coming weeks and months ahead.

We now finally have some good news; we are opening our church once again for worship.

This has been a long time coming, but we were following all the guidelines given to us by the Church of Scotland, and there are many.  However, we understand that it is for our own safety.

 A lot of hard work has gone into preparing for opening and to ensure social distancing is being kept throughout the building.  It will seem very strange to all of us as we try to follow all the regulations.

I fully understand that many people still do not feel safe enough to return to worship yet and indeed it is a daunting thought, with the number of cases changing daily.

The church has been measured out and seating marked, our capacity is 40 plus Minister, organist and duty elders.  Follow the links on the Facebook tab on this website to book your seat for the service or the link under the "Notices" tab on the front page of the website.

I hope that if you feel able to come to worship you will still find our church a welcoming place.  If you are still not too sure about joining us for worship, the service will be streamed live on our Facebook page.

Rev Fiona Wilson

I can still be contacted on 01556 610708 if pastoral care is needed.

 

Rev Fiona Wilson and Richard Wilson
