A Letter from our Minister

Dear Friends,

I am writing to you in response to the Scottish Government’s recent changes to the Level 4 COVID restrictions.

You may be aware that these now mean that Church buildings cannot, at present, be venues for public worship or private prayer.  Very sadly this means that for at least the next four weeks, we will no longer be able to host private prayer in any of our Church buildings.

Can I take this opportunity to offer a sincere thank you to all of those who enabled private prayer to happen.  This involved a huge amount of work and was greatly appreciated by those who attended.

The restrictions still allow for Churches to be open for funerals (with up to 20 attending), weddings (with up to 5 attending) and essential services such as the Community Larder.  If anyone would like a small wedding, now is the perfect time.

The regulations also enable a minister or worship leader to enter the building to be recorded for online worship.  Thus our online worship services will still take place, at least in part, from our Church buildings.  We are making another additional change.  To cut down on potential chains of transmission, those taking part in worship – either preaching, reading or leading a prayer – will be recorded either by themselves or by someone in their household or bubble.  Robert and Lorna have already become a formidable production duo so no changes for them, but the rest of us will be doing things a little differently.  Please go gentle on us if future Youtubes suffer from the loss of Jamie’s camera work – and hopefully his continued editing will sort out any glitches.  We will also continue to host zoom services.

Can I also urge you, please please please, to let me know of anyone who requires pastoral support at this time: either you or someone you know.

And let us all continue to pray for those involved in healthcare and other essential services, those for whom lockdown is particularly stressful or isolating and those working to distribute and administer vaccines (this includes a number in our congregations),

Yours in Christ,


Neil Glover

Advice for Churches: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Updated 17 March 2020            Worship – Cancellation of Services

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: house groups, meetings for youth work, and church cafes. It will still be possible for an individual to offer a live stream of a sermon and prayers. Further information on live streaming, including information on copyright, can be found in this circular on the Law Department’s webpages here. 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 live streams or recorded services; a list can be found on our website.

Online worship

Several churches live stream or post their services online. You can find a list of these on our Kirk services online page


The Moderator, the Right Reverend Colin Sinclair, along with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and other church leaders, has issued a call for a National Day of Prayer; more details can be found in the news section of our website.

Hygiene recommendations

Best hygiene practice should continue to be observed in all pastoral contacts.

Updated advice is available from NHS Scotland.

Public Health Scotland and the UK Government recommend that you should take usual infection prevention precautions including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available
  • Churches can underline the importance of hand washing by ensuring that hand sanitisers are not available in toilets where soap and water can be used
  • It is particularly important after taking public transport to use sanitiser on your hands
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Carry tissues to catch coughs and sneezes and bin the tissue
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home, do not attend work or school
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in church buildings

Dear Friends,

Sunday’s worship

This first link provides worship service details for the Communion Service on Sunday 27th September 2020.  The live service is due to start at 10.30am.



Please note that unfortunately with the new regulations there can be no mixed households but it we do hope that many people will manage to join this zoom service:

If you wish to join in the service you may wish to have actual proper wine, alongside cranberry juice, blackcurrant juice or grape juice.

Regarding bread you may want to go for Pitta to keep with the Unleavened bread theme of exodus,  or a roll, or a plain slice.

The zoom link is here…https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83009650276

Password 504415
Meeting room is 830 0965 0276

There will also be a shorter Youtube going up for anyone who can’t make 10:30am on Sunday.  It will be at the usual channel which is here:


There will be an option to chat at the end and there will hopefully be a choice as to where you go to chat (hopefully there will be virtual Lawers Rooms, John Kyd halls, McDonald Rooms, Logierait back halls and Tenandry Church fronts, Glasgow room and chat room for those who don’t want to chat).

With warmest wishes and with the great privilege of being your ministers,
