Worship in time of Covid Restrictions
Our two worship services per week are proving a success.
The Sunday service is limited to a maximum of 50 at 11am and follows all the protocols set by the national church and Scottish government re use of facemasks, sanitizer and contact tracing. We average 25 worshippers so have not reached the limit at any service so far so please feel free to join us – contact the minister or Session Clerk if you want clarity about the guidelines we follow ( which are in detail at end of this article)
Wednesday morning is the time for our shorter service which is incorporated into a time of conversation on the Zoom video platform.
The link opens at 10.15am with the worship service at c.1030am depending on how easily we all link up - a few technical issues have allowed us to smile
So if you wish to join us please contact the minister at DBlack@churchofscotland.org.uk for the vital “link”.
Those who wish to watch worship on a digital platform on a Sunday morning should visit the Church of Scotland website where you will find a selection of live streamed services to cater for a variety of worship styles. To access these - please follow the link: https://churchofscotland.org.uk/worship...
Hopefully government restrictions will soon be lifted so that we can return to our regular full set of gatherings for worship, prayer and study but meantime the more we adhere to, and work within, the guidelines offered the sooner this will happen.
Sunday at 11:00am, Please remember the following:
- Wear a face mask (except where other health conditions prevent you from doing so)
- Use of the hand sanitation stations
- For the purpose of contact tracing you need to provide correct and current contact details before being allowed entry to the building
- There is a one-way system entering by middle side door – and you will be assigned a seat
- No singing
- No physical contact between people from different households will be allowed during the service
- There will be no social gathering or tea and coffee after the service
- The toilets are accessible just follow direction from the duty team of you need to use them.
Eddie Enslin was inducted as minister of Mortlach and Cabrach Church in the Presbytery of Moray on the 8th October. Though we could not be there in person it was good to be able to watch the service on Zoom along with his family and friends in South Africa as well as his new parishioners.
Alastair Munro has come to join us for the next few months as he undertakes his second placement in his training to become an Ordained Local Minister. He is finding the Wednesday service a good way to get to know those who are unable to worship with us on Sunday.
