Sadly we have made the decision, based on government and Church of Scotland advice, to cancel all church services and meetings until further notice. The protection of all our people is paramount and so this difficult decision has been taken.
The Church of Scotland have a list on their website of churches that regularly livestream services or offer them as downloadable recordings. This is not a definitive list. Please bear in mind that, given the current situation, some of these services may not go ahead.
If anyone is finding social isolation difficult we have people who are ready and eager to help either practically, emotionally or with prayer. Please contact your elder or Sheila Lamont , Session Clerk, if you would like to access this support.
Please remember to pray for our church, our community, our country and the world during this difficult time. Especially for those working to find solutions and those working hard to support us through this time.
With the current crisis we recognise that the work of the foodbank will be increasingly important. To help with this we now have received agreement from ERC Environmental Health department to open the Carswell Centre for donations to the foodbank. The Carswell Centre will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11.00 until 12.00 to receive donations. In line with guidance and to protect all concerned, the doors of the Carswell Centre will be open so that donations can be placed inside without touching any surfaces. The donations will be taken the following week (i.e. Leaving a minimum of 72 hours untouched) to the distribution centre in Barrhead. We are glad to be able to support this essential work during this period of crisis.
