We warmly welcome all to our services, which are held in church each Sunday at 9am and 10.45am, and at 11am on the first Thursday of the month.

Bearing in mind the rapidly spreading Omicron Variant, we ask that anyone who is showing any symptoms of Covid or a Cold please do NOT come to church until all symptoms have gone, even if a Lateral Flow Test is negative. Thank you!
Other important information for when attending church to help keep everyone safe:
The Scottish Government is advising congregations, if possible, to do a Lateral Flow Test before attending church, and if you are able to do so, that would be appreciated.
The latest SEC guidance strongly advises a return to all attending keeping the two-metre self-distancing rule indoors, which Vestry has endorsed. Therefore there is a the one-way system in church, and please keep 2 metres or more apart when speaking to anyone outside of your family bubble.
One can sit in family ‘bubbles’, but please only sit in the pews with a GREEN tick. Each pew end states if you are to sit in the middle or at one end of that pew.
Following Government regulations the wearing of face masks is still required, and we ask that all who attend have signed the Trace and Protect consent form. Forms are available at the door.
With the alarming rising number of cases due to the Omicron variant, not surprisingly some people will not feel comfortable about attending services in church just now. If this is the case, we completely understand and look forward to seeing you when you feel able to attend again.
Thank you for complying and for your understanding.
For now, we are not having tea and coffee after the Sunday 10.45am services. However, we hope to do so again before too long!

The Liturgies we use for our services are,
9am Sunday Services, and at 11am on the first Thursday of the month. A service of Holy Communion using a shortened Liturgy from The Scottish Prayer Book. These services use traditional language, and have no music or sermon.
10.45am Sunday service. A service of Holy Communion using a shortened 1982 Liturgy. This uses modern language, with up to a quartet in the choir and some congregational singing.
All are very welcome!
