LATEST UPDATE 3rd october
From Sunday 4th October, parents are now welcome to bring children back to worship in church.
Please note that there will be no Creche or Sunday School provision meantime therefore children must sit with their parents throughout the short service. The halls will remain closed.
Please book your space at the service as per the information below and become familiar with all the information below before attending a service.
Make sure to check out our video below about what it is going to look like when you attend one of our services.
If you are not sure about coming to a service we will still be streaming a full service (including songs, kids talk etc.) via Facebook and YouTube. Check out our Watch/Listen page for all previous services.
I’m pleased to advise you that we will be open for worship again beginning at 11.00am on 20th September. However, worship will look and feel different especially at first. Please refer to all the details in the PDF document below.
Initially, the service in church will be for adults only, will last for 30 minutes approximately and will comprise intimations, prayers, reading(s), sermon and benediction but, sadly, no singing since it creates risk of spreading any virus present.
Please note that only the church building will be open and that the halls and toilets will not be available.
In preparing for reopening we have adhered very carefully to both Scottish Government and Church of Scotland Guidelines to ensure that the church environment is as safe as possible.
In return, we ask that, before attending, you have first read and thought about the information in the PDF below to familiarise yourself with the rules and procedures involved and that you have booked a seat in advance. Please do not turn up on chance as places are strictly limited in line with Government/Church Guidelines.
We request that you maintain the 2 metre physical distancing rule within the church and its grounds and that you follow the directions/instructions of the team of elders on duty.
Since the effects of Covid-19 are likely to continue for some considerable time, it is impossible to estimate at present when we will be able to return to what may be a ‘new normal’ at Newton Wallacetown Church. Members and regular worshippers will be advised by e-mail or letter of any changes planned if regulations are eased.
We understand completely that not everyone will feel comfortable/safe returning to worship at present for a variety of reasons. Our streamed service will continue as usual on our Facebook page and YouTube where you can hear the spoken part of the service in church with the addition of hymns and children’s talk.
Reopening the church
is church closed?
No! The way we are "doing" church is changing in the current difficult circumstances.
Sunday Services are cancelled for the forseeable future however it does not mean that the church is unreachable in this difficult time. At NWC we are seeking ways that we can bring church to you!
