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 in the way 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.

To make sure everyone can join in, our main Sunday worship continues to be online and over the telephone.  You'll find links below to video, audio and written versions of our weekly worship, posted here each Saturday.  For folks not online, we also have a recording to listen to any time by dialling 01479 788800.

But we are now starting to offer in-person worship again in the coming weeks!
From Sunday 11th April worship will begin to be offered in our buildings, limited to a maximum of 50 people, but with much smaller numbers able to fit in to Cromdale and Dulnain Bridge due to physical distancing.  To start with, only Cromdale will be open, and you can book your place for the 9.30am service with Diane Brazier.
Inverallan Church will be open for private prayer on Sundays at 11am.  Just drop in.

On this page you'll find links to other ways that we can worship together, and a variety of places online where we can with join folks from across Scotland.

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 also a Community Food Table operating from the YM Community Centre 11am-1pm on Mondays and Fridays, as well as 6.30-8pm on Wednesdays, 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.
