Due to the ongoing situation and on the information and advice received, all activities, including Worship. have been cancelled.

We regret this course of action but it is necessary under the circumstances. We will keep you informed of any further developments.


Below is an extract from The Church of Scotland “Advice for Churches”

The Scottish Government now advises that people should minimise social contact by avoiding crowded areas and large gatherings, including religious congregations, and smaller gatherings.

The Church of Scotland now asks, in the strongest terms, that all gatherings for worship should cease until further notice, with effect from Tuesday 17 March 2020. Other Scottish Churches are taking similar actions.

This obviously includes Easter services.

Some Presbyteries have already instructed this action. This will include, but not be restricted to: housegroups, meetings for youth work, and church cafes. It will still be possible for an individual to offer a livestream of a sermon and prayers. Sunday broadcasts of a weekly service take place on Radio 4, and also on Radio Scotland; other radio stations are available. Several churches currently offer livestreams or recorded services; a list can be found on our website.

Church buildings can be kept open as a place for people to come and pray.

Notices should be clearly displayed asking that visitors observe robust hand hygiene.

COVID-19 is impacting all our day to day lives and we are all concerned about what the coming weeks and months will hold for us. The safety and well-being of everyone should be our top priority and we all need to be part of the solution.
