Video of services

In these difficult time of COVID-19, with restricted numbers who can attend or, as now, suspension of communal worship, it is vital that our Church still reach out to our community congregation and friends.
Services are filmed and carried on YouTube, premiered at the regular time of service (for Sunday,11.00)
While we miss gathering together for worship, YouTube does deliver two great advantages in that you can watch or re-watch at any time and we can welcome visitors from a’ pairts – indeed worldwide – whether these be our own folk who have moved away or even those who have never heard of the “Fort at the end of a range of hills” (Kirkintilloch).
Please join our virtual but very real service on St Mary’s YouTube  Channel

All are welcome

As well as the Sunday service, there are lots of activities during the week. People of all ages come along to join in, and they aren’t all members of the church. Everyone is very welcome, from tiny to ninety.
