Following the First Minister's recent announcements concerning services of worship, we are delighted that St Mary’s Parish Church will be able to resume services with an ‘in person’ congregation from Easter Sunday onwards. According to Scottish Government regulations, numbers will be limited to allow social distancing and all attending must provide track and trace details. The ‘inperson’ congregation will be required to wear face masks when in Church and will not be permitted to sing. The services will, of course, continue to be broadcast live on-line and via the dedicated telephone line as normal.

If you would like to be a part of the inperson congregation, you must book a place each week. Places can be booked by calling the Church Office [01698 268554] during the week preceding the service. If no-one takes your call, please leave your name, contact details and the number of people who will be attending. If, when you call, the limit for the coming week’s service has already been exceeded you will be offered a place at the following week’s service. Booking places for a Church Service is far from ideal but it is the only straightforward way that we can proceed in the weeks and months ahead.
