BBC Scotland Service on Sunday 24 january 2021 is on iplayer for one month.
Our services will continue as normal on Sunday on Zoom at 11.00am and 6.30pm, they can also be viewed on YouTube. The BBC Scotland service is an extra service we have been asked to do.
Please note, following the advice from Government and the Church of Scotland, all in-person meetings, including the two Sunday Services, have been cancelled until further notice. We regret having to do this and will continue to pray for all.
We will be livestreaming our Sunday Services online at 11am and 6.30pm for all who have internet access, using Zoom software - Click here to join a Zoom meeting (or launch your Zoom software) and put in the meeting ID 908 609 4037.

It’s important to stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading.

How coronavirus is spread
Because it’s a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.
Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.
It’s very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.
Treatment for coronavirus
There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.
Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.
Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.
You’ll need to stay in isolation, away from other people, until you have recovered.
