Summary of arrangements:
Online Sunday worship continues at 10.30am each Sunday and can be accessed through the church’s Facebook page.

We are following the advice from the Scottish Government and the Church of Scotland.

Online streaming
pnline video stream
We are continuing to stream a weekly act of worship online.

From Sunday 21st February we start a series of services for Lent, see below for details.

On Sunday February 14th we had a 'Virtual Pulpit Swap' when Rev. Tom Speers from Calvary Presbyterian Church, Wilmington, Delaware provided a video for our service. You can watch the service on catch-up.

The streamed services are on our Facebook page at 10:30am on a Sunday morning but are also available thereafter for you to catch up later. Whilst Facebook will encourage you to 'sign up', this is not necessary to view the services.

Lent 2021 - Following Jesus

This year we will be following Jesus through the six Sundays of Lent – from the wilderness of the desert to the foot of the cross.

Lent 2021


Each week, the minister will preach on different aspects of Jesus’ life and ministry with a particular focus on his ‘holy habits’ – practices which can give us ways to engage with his life and ministry.

It's hopde that this focus on the way that Jesus lived his life will help us to draw closer to him as we live our lives and follow his ‘holy habits’.

This year we will be following Jesus through the six Sundays of Lent – from the wilderness of the desert to the foot of the cross.

In accordance with government advice and that issued by the Church of Scotland about physical distancing and the need to minimise social and religious gatherings Worship on Sundays has had to change.
