SUNDAY 22nd MARCH 2020
TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF THE CHURCH
We have taken a very difficult decision to close the church with immediate effect. This is due entirely to the unprecedented circumstances in which we all find ourselves, due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Both central government politicians and scientific advisers and devolved leadership here in Scotland are all recommending less and less social contact.
Schools, universities, pubs, clubs and restaurants have all been summoned to close until further notice.
Much though it pains us to close the church – and please be assured this will be for a temporary period only, we are taking decisive, mature and responsible action, as are the larger denominations around us, namely the Church of Scotland, the Roman Catholic Church and the Episcopal Church.
We of the Congregational Church are determined to do our very best to try to limit both the spread and the pace of spread of the virus and to protect the well being of the most of us who are in the vulnerable age range. This we feel justifies closing the church to all services and meetings until further notice.
Last Sunday`s morning service on 15th March was the last to be held in our church for an indeterminate time to come.
We both wish you all good health and God`s blessing and as Christians we surely believe that God is a protective God who blesses all who call upon him.
As your pastor and as your church registrar we are both committed to responding very speedily with whatever help is needed and here are our contact details:-
