“A Church at the Heart of the Community”

Greetings from the Manse, 

 
We offer you a very warm welcome to our service of worship. It’s good to see so many joining us for worship, both in church and online. 
 
May you each know Gods presence.  
 
Our Notices for this week:
 
Sunday Worship: Worship is very much open to all, with most of the restrictions on places of Worship being lifted. 
  • Masks are no longer a legal requirement to be worn in Church, however anyone who feels safer continuing to wear a mask should do so. 
  • Social distancing is now a matter of personal preference, please respect individuals’ wishes to maintain social distancing. [Remember: The balcony is usually much quieter than the main sanctuary].  
We will continue to monitor the guidelines and what they may mean for our services or worship, church groups and organisations.
