The Scottish Government has advised that because of the risk of infection with the coronavirus COVID-19, people should minimise social contact by avoiding crowded areas and large gatherings, including religious congregations, and most smaller gatherings.
In the light of this, the Church of Scotland has agreed to recommend that all gatherings for worship should cease until further notice. Other Scottish Churches are taking similar actions. This includes Easter services. This will include, but not be restricted to, house groups, meetings for youth work, and church cafes.
Click on the website of your local church to find out more. You'll find the link under the congregations tab above.
Some churches are able to offer a livestreaming of an act of worship and you will see that on their websites. We've publishing a list of online services and other opportunities to worship. We'll continue to add new opportunities as we go along.
Some church buildings are also being kept open as a place for people to come and pray. Visit the website of the church concerned to find out when its doors are open.
