Notices for Sunday 5 September 2021

STRATHBROCK PARISH CHURCH

This is the information for the church service of 5 September 2021 at 10.30am in St. Nicholas Church, Uphall and important intimations. There will be no need to book a place in church, as we will move to 1m-distancing inside the church building and our maximum capacity will change to 80 people. However, we still need to wear face coverings for the entire service; hand sanitisers will be available at the door and a duty elder will show you where to sit, as the inside of the church has been prepared with signs and markers of where to sit (which may mean that you won’t be able to sit in your usual spot) and which doors and exits to use. We are allowed to sing wearing face coverings. The service will also be recorded for those who will not be able to be in church, and will be made available on Youtube, Facebook and the website, by a Sunday evening. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Hanneke on 01506 206045 or hjansevanvuren@churchofscotland.org.uk or your district elder, and we would be happy to assist you with any questions or queries.

Week 2 :   That BUSY volunteers would continue to have meaningful conversations with young people about life, God and faith.

Week 3 :   That BUSY would be able to resume some of its in-school programme after a year of being away, and would have enough people to lead in-school sessions.
