Church in a time of Coronavirus
In these strange times we're living in, everything has changed. Church as we know it has had to change too. For now, we're not able to meet together on Sundays, or carry out many of the activities that we are used to.
But church doesn't stop. Worshipping together doesn't stop. Being church continues. And reaching out in love to one another, and our communities, is more important than ever.
On this page you'll find links to ways that we can worship together, and a variety of places online where we can with join folks from across Scotland. We'll also post weekly liturgies that we can all use at home, and the Inverallan Facebook page (right) will share daily prayers from a variety of sources, plus the odd reflection from Mary and Gordon, as we try to make sense of the world in this time of fear and isolation.
Although we have paused production of 'Bridges', we're still producing occasional newsletters to the whole church membership. You can look at the most recent one here.
There is a growing amount of support available in our communities, with volunteers offering help to those who are self-isolating with shopping, pharmacy collections, advice and more...
There is now a Community Food Table operating from the YM Community Centre 11am-1pm every Monday to Saturday, as well as 5-7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with fresh and short-dated food and some essentials free to anyone who might need them. If you're self-isolating, just call one of the numbers above and someone can bring you a delivery. At the same time, we're collecting for the Badenoch & Strathspey Foodbank and referrals can be made to their services at any time.
Most importantly, don't suffer in silence. There is lots of help available so, please, reach out because the churches and our communities care.
