Revisions to COVID Measures for Worship

Following Scottish Government and Church of Scotland guidance of 16th December 2021, the following interim measures will be taken by this church.

These are in addition to our existing protocols designed to offer a safe environment for worship. We will:

  • ask the congregation and Office Bearers to consider taking Lateral Flow Tests before attending each service,

  • reapply the Level 0 capacity limits,

  • reintroduce our online booking system as part of “Test & Protect” measures,

  • take names and contact details at the door for those not pre-booked,

  • request attendees to observe a 1m distance from other households when seating themselves or moving around.  The Door Team will remind people with notices/intimations reinforcing this message,

  • continue our wiping down of touch surfaces after each service in preparation for the normal cleaning routine between services,

  • suspend the provision of after-worship refreshments,

  • hold church meetings online, and

  • ask those making a pastoral visit to consider undertaking a Lateral Flow Test.

These measures will be reviewed by the Kirk Session at its meeting in January 2022.

 

Online booking can be made at:

  • Giving in Challenging Times - Would you consider a Standing Order? If you think there is some merit in changing your giving from the FWO envelopes or cash to Standing Order, please contact Dr Alisdair Shaw. He has an explanatory letter and a prepared Standing Order form he can send you. You may also wish to read a letter from the Church of Scotland on  Generosity in Adversity. Thank you.
