Reopening the Church for worship
The Church is now open for Sunday Services each week at 10.30am.  Guidelines about the service have now been emailed or posted to all members detailing how you can book a seat, the requirement to wear a mask at all times, and some of the limitations (no toilet facilities, no tea or coffee afterwards, no singing and no pew cushions).  The link to these guidelines can also be found here.   As Glasgow is now in Tier 4 restrictions seating is limited to 20 people including the minister, organist and church officer.  Everyone who wishes to come to church must book in advance each week by phoning the church office before 3pm on Thursday.

Prayer Group – As we have no Prayers for Healing service at the moment there is a small prayer group that receives a prayer list of world wide and local concerns to pray for.  If you would like to add anyone to the prayer list, or be part of the prayer group, then please let the minister know.
