THE CHURCH FAMILY NEWS

                        Sunday, 17th January 2021              

I hope this finds you and your family well and keeping safe. 

As we are now under enhanced COVID Scottish Government restrictions, as such, our church doors are now closed for the next few weeks.

We will keep you updated as things progress.

Our minister, Murdo C. Macdonald will continue to livestream both Wednesday and Sunday services weekly, which will certainly be some comfort for everyone during the coming weeks. Please do tune in using the various normal options. 

Please take care and may God’s blessing surround us all.
