A Message from Rev. N. Glover

Dear Friends,

I am writing to let you know that Weem Church will be open for public worship on the 11th October at 9:30am.

This will be Public Worship for members of all our congregations (and beyond).  We are hopeful that there should be sufficient accommodation in the Sanctuary for all who attend (this is based on the recent questionnaire).  If numbers are significantly larger than anticipated, anyone who can’t be given entry will be given priority at future services of worship.

It is a very personal decision for all of us as to whether we are and feel ready to come to physically gathered public worship at this time.  Please be assured of my full support in whatever decision you come to in this regard.  I have attached a Church of Scotland scoresheet to assist in thinking through whether one should or should not attend physically gathered worship.

I also attach the “Statement of practice” which outlines the protocols being observed in Weem to allow public worship to take place.

If you have any questions at all about this please don’t hesitate to contact me on nglover@churchofscotland.org.uk.

On another note, it was fabulous to see so many logged in for last week’s Zoom Communion.   If you’re able to, it would be great to see you at 10:30am this coming Sunday.  The link is:

Letter from Rev. Harry Mowbray

Dear Friends

After much careful, prayerful consideration and the completion of the necessary risk assessments, we have received permission from Presbytery to open Weem Church for the purpose of INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE PRAYER.

We are not yet at the stage of applying for permission to open for other purposes such as funerals and weekly worship but we are working through the processes needed to enable us to do so when the appropriate preparations have been made and it is safe to do so.

Weem Church will be open for individual private prayer on Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 12:00 on a trial basis for four weeks beginning on Saturday 15 August.

The church will be manned by volunteers who will guide visitors in the procedures necessary to ensure physical distancing and hand hygiene are maintained. If you intend to visit for prayer, please follow the advice of the volunteers and the signs around the building.

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

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,
