New Church Openings
Dear fellow members of GLS,
I hope this finds you well.
I wanted to update you on the decision of the Kirk Session and Board this week to recommence physically gathered worship in our buildings from Sunday 20th June at 10:30am in Strathtay Church.
We will be operating the usual monthly rota between Strathtay and Logierait, which means we will be in Strathtay for the month of June, before moving to Logierait for July (meaning worship will begin at Logierait on the Sunday 4th July, once again at 10:30am).
Numbers are limited in order to meet the regulations relating to social distancing. If you could like to attend, please could you let Andrew know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, you may recall a few months ago I had asked for donations to support a hardship fund. The response to this was quite remarkable. If you, or someone you know of in our communities, might benefit from this, please please could you let me know.
Yours with the great privilege of being your minister,
Minister – Aberfeldy (SC007899), Dull & Weem (SC001465) and Grantully, Logierait & Strathtay (SC004275) Parish Churches.

Information from Church of Scotland
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.
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.
Best hygiene practice should continue to be observed in all pastoral contacts.
Updated advice is available from NHS Scotland.
- 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

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.

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,
