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.
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.
We had began weekly, in-person worship services, moving around our three church buildings. However, with the tightened Level 4 restrictions now in place, these have been suspended until at least February. We will update this page with dates as soon as we can.
Also 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.
