4th August 2020 – a message from the Locum Minister

It has been 21 weeks since we last used Lairg Parish Church for worship. At a recent meeting of the Kirk Session we sadly had to make the decision that although Scottish Government Guidelines allow for the re-opening of places of worship under phase 3, we are not yet in a position to be able to re-open Lairg Church of Scotland.

The health and safety requirements, the initial deep cleaning and ongoing cleaning and sanitising procedures necessary are such that given the size and age profile of our regular congregation we cannot undertake all that is required to ensure the safety of everyone entering and using the church premises.

We sincerely hope and pray that as the whole Covid-19 pandemic situation improves that we will be able to welcome back everyone who wishes to come into God’s house for prayer and worship. To enable us to do this we would welcome any offers of help from folk in the community who love, value and appreciate the place of the church in our village. If you are prepared to lend a hand to get the building ready to re-open please contact myself, Hilary Gardner, Locum Minister (HGardner@churchofscotland.org.uk 01863 766107) or Linda Sones, Session Clerk (lindasones@btinternet.com 01549 402733).

 

We are holding our weekly prayer meeting on Thursdays at 2.30pm via Zoom

From Sunday 9th August there will be a Virtual morning service at 11.00am via Zoom

 

If you would like to join either of these Zoom events please send an email to our Locum Minister who will send you the joining instructions.

If you need any other support, practical or prayerful please contact
