Back to church
Corsock and Kirkpatrick Durham Parish Church
The Kirk Session has decided to recommence Sunday Services, however, at present only Kirkpatrick Durham Church will be open for weekly worship. The first service will be on Sunday 27 September at 10.00am finishing at around 10.30am (please note change from usual time) and will continue weekly at that time for the immediate future. The Church of Scotland has produced detailed guidelines on how services can be conducted as safely as possible under current circumstances, and we draw your attention to the points made below, to both reassure and encourage you, should you wish to attend:-
1. You should enter the church by the front door and follow the one-way system in operation.
There is a maximum of 30 people allowed for the service. Whilst we do not anticipate this being an issue, if you wish to pre-book a seat please do so by contacting the session clerk. We would particularly ask you to do this if you have family or friends visiting and they will be attending.
Please consider your own health and condition. If you are considered vulnerable you may wish to delay returning to church till a later date. There are many factors that may make you “vulnerable” including being 70 or over, having a chronic respiratory disease or diabetes. (See Church of Scotland Covid-19 Reopening of Church Buildings Guidelines, Appendix 4 if in doubt)
We wish to support you in your choice to participate in church life that meets your own needs and preferences whilst safeguarding your own health safety and welfare as well as the wider congregation and community. Please contact Sally if you wish to further discuss church “out-with our walls”.
