Phase 3 Update.
Due to the list of requirements by ScotGOV and with the majority of our office bearers still “guarding”, we are unable to open the Church buildings for Congregational worship, so our Online worship services will continue as the new normal for Sunday worship.
The Kirk Sessions of Dallas, Rafford and St Leonards are looking for ways to open for funeral services but these will have to be carefully co-ordinated, recording attendees, cleaning before and after and with seat spacing. Other risk analyses and health and safety issues have to be achieved and recorded first. Hymn singing is also not permitted until further notice.
The situation may change by early September when the Kirk Sessions hope to be in a position to open the Church buildings. BUT… remember the Church is not the building! It is the people of God called out to serve in the community.
May God bless you in your mission.
Rev Donald Prentice
