Worship Update – 18/11/2020

Due to the move to Level 4, we have decided that there will be no Sunday worship for members in either of our church buildings before Sunday 13th December. This is to protect the health of our members and reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Our minister, Scott, will lead online worship on Sunday mornings at 10.00am, including Communion on Sunday 6th December. Please click the following link to access the services on our YouTube channel.

Worship Update – 16/07/2020

Worship resumes in the Netherlee Sanctuary on Sunday 26th July.

There will be 2 services so come along at either 10:00am or 11:30am.

The Scottish Government has specified that the maximum number of people who can attend any service is 50.

To help prevent anyone turning up and finding that the service is full and being turned away we have introduced a booking system. If you want to book a spot please contact the Netherlee Church Office between 10:00am and noon on Tuesday morning and between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm on Wednesday. The church office number is 0141 637 2503.

We will endeavour to notify you before each Sunday how many seats have been booked and how many seats remain. Please bear with us as we navigate this new normal.

Glasgow Presbytery has not granted us permission to open Stamperland

due to outstanding electrical work which must be completed

and certified before we can re-apply for permission to open.

This matter will be considered by the Fabric Committee and the Kirk Session

Please be aware that due to Covid-19 it will be a different new normal
