WELCOME TO ARBROATH WEST KIRK
A warm welcome is extended to one and all as we continue to follow the Scottish Government’s guidelines out of this pandemic.
Following the guidelines of the Scottish Government and the requirements of the Church of Scotland, we are delighted that our church building is open for worship every Sunday.
The restrictions that were in place before Christmas remain. The maximum number of people for worship is 50. It is therefore advisable to pre-book a place using our office number at the times detailed below. Face masks are mandatory and social distancing guidelines will be in place. Though there are limited spaces available, we are still able to worship together as a church family as our service continues to be available from 11am every Sunday on YouTube and Facebook – links below – and is broadcast on Radio North Angus every Sunday afternoon at 3pm.
The restriction on volunteers distributing our magazine has now also been lifted and we are preparing to send out an April/May edition in the middle of April. In the meantime, please visit our News page for details of all our services and activities for Holy Week and Easter.
The beautiful weather of the last couple of weeks and the daffodils now beginning to bloom assure us of the continuous cycle of nature. It reminds me of the well-known verses in Ecclesiastes 3 that there is a particular time for everything. This year the Spring growth and the Easter season coincide with the slow but hopefully steady lifting of restrictions. Coming out of lockdown, like the joy of the Resurrection is not an ending but a new beginning. All new beginnings take time – so let’s learn afresh to enjoy our freedoms and appreciate all that has been given to achieve them.
May you know the joy and peace of the Easter season,
Take care, stay safe and God bless,
Our office number has been diverted and for information about services and any other enquiries, please call on a Monday between 9-11am, Tuesday between 9am-1pm or Thursday between 12.45-4.45pm.
