as WE TRY TO WORK WITH AND AROUND THE REGULATIONS IMPOSED DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC THE FOLLOWING GENERAL INFORMATION WILL APPLY
As our hot water system does not comply with COVID 19 regulations as to the temperature of water for washing hands our toilet will be out of action unless in a real emergency; if used we need to clean the facility each time.
Revd. Andrew Dick will lead our service for us. Andrew is our Interim Moderator while our minister, Revd. Dale London, is off sick. Please pray for recovery for Dale and give a’ hearty TVP welcome’ to Andrew!!
As we restart holding regular services in Cranstoun, we are obviously coming to a ‘different’ sort of church but, one that is safe in these Covid-19 times.
The number of persons who can be accommodated each Sunday will be greatly reduced at the start because of the requirement for social distancing. In Cranstoun we can only have twenty-four people at each service. Fala and Borthwick are five and six respectively.
We hope this will increase as regulations ease and we will let you know as this happens.
As only a few can come to church, we are asking you to let us know you if want to attend. See below.
HOW TO BOOK YOUR SEAT
You can register that you want to come to Cranstoun either through the link (below) or you will be sent that same link by a further email or you can phone Julia Baker on 01875 320 132. It is simple and easy. All you need to provide is a name, contact details and how many people are coming. There will be a cut off time for letting us know, which is 12 noon on the Saturday before the service . Remember numbers are limited to keep everyone safe so book your place!
KEEPING US SAFE
The church building has been professionally cleaned as well as cleaned and made ready by our own cleaning team. It will be safe and ready to welcome you back.
You will have to bring and wear a face mask – that is essential. However, if you cannot wear a face mask or face covering for some good reason, please explain that when you come to church. Keeping each other safe will also mean we cannot sing out loud. But, we will sing in our hearts, and bring loads of loving fellowship to each other! There will be hand sanitising, staying 2 metres apart, no hugs or handshakes and, sorry, no chats over a cup of coffee or tea at the end of the service!
As we do our best at the beginning, we will learn to make services easier and better. We are starting back on a journey to a fuller, richer church, looking forward to much easier times ahead!
You will be asked to give us some contact details for the NHS Scotland Test and Protect strategy. These will be held by us for 21 days and then destroyed. If, however, an infection is found, then these contact details will be passed on to the Church of Scotland Data Protection Officer and then to the NHS so you can be protected. By giving TVP your contact details you’re agreeing to let us do that.
“Welcome back, it’s good to see you!”
Stewards and an Usher will help you when you arrive at church. So, no worries, just let us know you are coming and we will help you feel welcome to our services of praise and prayer. Hallelujah!
PLEASE NOTE: As our hot water system does not comply with COVID 19 regulations as to the temperature of water for washing hands, our toilet will be out of action unless in a real emergency. If used we need to clean the facility each time.
