Church News

Weekly Sunday church services restarted on 18th April 2021, at St Andrew’s Garrison Church.  The service begins at 11am.  (Zoom option still available.)

Those attending:
• Please arrive at church between 10.45am and 11am.  (Arrival times are being controlled as part of the Church’s Covid-19 safety measures.)
• Please enter the church by the main door, rather than use any of the side entrances.  Within the church there will be a one way system.
• Those attending the service, as members of the congregation, will require to wear masks and be socially distanced from other members of the congregation who do not belong to their household.
• After the service please leave, rather than mingle or chat.
• Those attending the service, as members of the congregation, will be required to give their names which will be kept for three weeks in case contact tracing of those present at the service is needed.

Sunday School is not yet restarting.

It is recognised that a number of people will not be returning immediately when church restarts and consequently the church service will still also be broadcast using Zoom.  If you are on the church’s email list, login details should have been emailed to you.  If not and you would like to login to this Sunday’s service, please email our session clerk, Murdo Macleod, at, for the website address and login passwords.  (Click on the website address emailed to you to download and install a small file to be able to sign in to the Church’s Zoom meeting/service.  When the meeting/service starts, one then needs to input the passwords.)
