Aberfeldy, Dull and Weem, Grantully, Logierait and Strathtay Churches of Scotland
12th August 2018
I am writing to you to bring you up to date with the decision relating to our service times.
On 29th July each of our Kirk Sessions met and agreed that from Sunday 2nd September, our new service times would be:
Dull and Weem 9:30am
Grantully, Logierait and Strathtay 10:30am
The overwhelming result of the consultation was support for these times, but there were a few points which were noted.
- There were a number in Dull & Weem who said they would prefer meeting at 10:30am, and a number in Grantully, Logierait and Strathtay who gave a preference for 9:30am.
- There are issues with bus times and the proposed new time for GLS, we are going to bring in a new transport rota in GLS to address this
- There were some responses stating a preference for an 11:30am service at Aberfeldy but the majority preferred 11:15am.
- It was pointed out that those in supported accommodation in Aberfeldy would be prepared to change their lunch time. However it was also noted that there is value in simply keeping service times away from the middle of the day – allowing people the chance on a Sunday to meet with friends and family, and also a time which may be more attractive to potential new members.
- It was suggested that the Kirk Sessions review the new arrangements after there has been a chance to bed in. The Kirk Sessions agreed very much with this and we will do this in March of the coming year – please do update me or your elder if you experience any unexpected benefits or difficulties with the new times.
I do very much hope that these new times support the building up of our fellowships and our mission as a Church,
With a very good wish, and in Christ,
