Worship Update – 07/01/2021

Following the recent government guidence we have decided there will be no Sunday morning services in either of our churches until further notice. Whilst we remain in “Lockdown” our minister will record a short reflection with prayers which can be viewed on YouTube and here on Facebook.
 
We will follow the Scottish Government’s advice regarding public worship. However it is unlikely that public worship will resume before February 2021.
 
Bearing in mind the high level of transmitability of the new strain of Covid-19 it has been decided that the practice of recording a Sunday morning worship service in the Netherlee sanctuary was putting an unnecessary risk on the health of the AV Team, organist, minister and others. As a consequence, for the next few weeks, our minister will record a reflection with prayers and this will be uploaded to the church YouTube channel.
 
Once the government permits holding public worship with congregations of up to 20 people we plan to revert to making a live broadcast and recording of worship in Netherlee sanctuary. Only members of the AV Team, organist and minster will be present in the church for this service.
 
Once the government permits holding public worship with congregations of up to 50 people we plan to having two services each Sunday morning.

Are you aware that if you have been unable to attend worship on a Sunday morning you can see the service from Sunday afternoon online?
