Christmas Services & Covid 19 Update
As you are aware the rapid increase in Omicron COVID-19 cases has brought new guidelines from the Scottish Government and the Church of Scotland. As a result, we have had to review our Christmas services and have reluctantly decided to cancel the Christmas Eve services at Spott, and Belhaven, and direct members and friends to an online version.
Details to view will be available shortly on the church website. Christmas Day and Boxing Day services will proceed as planned.
In addition, the existing sanitising, distancing, and pre-booking arrangements for Track and Trace will continue to apply for all church services. Members and visitors to the church are also strongly encouraged to undertake Lateral Flow Testing before attending services or gatherings. Further updates will be provided as necessary.
We hope you have a lovely Christmas.
Spott Kirk Session 17 December 2021
Message from Brian
Dear Friends May I add my own expression of regret at the necessary curtailing of our Christmas worship. However, the current circumstances again demand sacrifices from all of us for the greater good and, as Christians, we of all people, must be prepared to lead by example in this holy season. The sacrifice made by God in Christ for the salvation of all begins in a cold stable as the Word takes flesh and dwells among us. Thus begins God’s self-revelation wherein we discover that God’s nature is perfect love; love from which nothing can ever separate us. As St Paul reminds us “There is nothing love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, its hope and its endurance.” Let us live in that truth as we face the latest challenges of Covid; let us live as a people of hope and let us give first priority to carrying the light of God’s, love into the darkness. I wish you every blessing from God as you do so this Christmas.
