ST MARY’S CHURCH KIRKINTILLOCH –SEPTEMBER 2021➢ As you know, social distancing has been rescinded in Scotland, although the church of Scotland is still advising us to stick to one metre distancing at the moment.
➢ Given the considerable rise in cases of COVID recently,we have decided that we will stick to one metre social distancing in our church at present, but we will remove the tape in our church, although the guides on duty who will take you to your seat will still only use every second pew. This means that we are taking a step in the ‘right’ direction whilst continuing to take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of everyone who attends our church services.
➢ The wearing of masks, even when singing, and our ‘track and Trace’ system will still apply and we would also ask you to continue using our one-way system meantime.
➢ We would like to thank you very much indeed for all ofyour help and support during this difficult time and we would ask for your continuing support for a just little longer.
➢ The above changes to the way that we manage our church will apply from Sunday 12th September 2021, but we will keep them under constant review and when appropriate we would intend to ease these restrictions further.
➢ Other arrangements as described in the original re-opening document of 25th August 2020 will still apply.
