Cancellation of Services and other information

18/03/2020 14:07

We are very sorry to inform you that with immediate effect all Church Services have been cancelled at St. Leonard's Church and Dalrymple Parish Church until further notice. Easter services have also been cancelled.

The Church of Scotland’s Covid-19 Task Group has considered the most recent advice from the Scottish Government, issued on the evening of Monday 16th March. 


The Scottish Government advised that people should minimise social contact by avoiding crowded areas and large gatherings, including religious congregations, and smaller gatherings, listing areas which were of concern. 


Worship – Cancellation of Worship Services

In the light of the above, the Church of Scotland Task Group has agreed to ask, in the strongest terms, that all gatherings for worship should cease until further notice, with effect from Wednesday 17th March 2020, or earlier if possible. Other Scottish Churches are taking similar actions.  This obviously includes Easter services.  Some Presbyteries have already instructed this action. This will include, but not be restricted to, housegroups, meetings for youth work, and church cafes.   Sunday broadcasts of a weekly service take place on Radio 4, and also on Radio Scotland; other radio stations are available.
