Although the Scottish government has announced that churches may re-open for private prayer, the Scottish College of Bishops have issued a lengthy document detailing how we must oblige certain requirements before we may proceed. Our vestries much first agree to re-opening, then the diocesan bishop’s approval be sought. The documentation is too detailed to print here but may be followed on
I will continue to say the office of Morning Prayer on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays inside our churches, with prayers said outside St. Mary’s and Greyfriars at Sunday service times for those who feel able to attend, and will advise you as soon as our beloved churches may be re-opened, albeit in a limited way.
Stephen Hazlett, Rector
