Update from Church of Scotland – COVID -19 advice

 Church Buildings – Heating and Ventilation

We are now allowed to have the heating on in our church buildings when the building is occupied. We are required to provide adequate ventilation before and after use.

Face Masks

We are still required to wear a mask in all our church buildings and halls.

Prof. Jason Leach has produced a video explaining the reasons why this is necessary. You can be access this through the Church of Scotland Website – News and Events



10:30am Zoom  (Room 920 598 9200, password 316316 https://us02web.zoom.us/j/9205989200)

A few things to remember for life in this part of the lockdown:

–      Please, if you can, take your smartphone to Church, and you can check in using the QR code

–       hymns books and hymn sheets will be made available, or you can bring your own,

–       We sing albeit through masks (the sound has been pretty good considering)

–       And as ever, if you have any COVID symptoms please (and I hate saying this!) don’t come along to physically gathered worship, but join via zoom, YouTube, Dial In

–       It’s 1m distancing

–       Children are of course welcome, but we haven’t yet got specific programs for young people

–       No coffee or teas yet (alas). We continue to keep abreast of the current guidelines from the            Church of Scotland

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
