COVID–19

The Church and Halls are now open again

Our main act of in-person worship is on Sunday morning at 10.30am.
This service is also livestreamed every week, and can be watched again on demand here.

How to book a place for Sunday mornings

Test and Protect regulations mean that we have to register all those attending any events at the church and halls. Here is what you need to do to reserve one of the limited number of seats in the church for Sunday morning worship.

  • Please book by email at bookgreenbank@gmail.com or telephone 0771 883 6683.
  • Booking will be open from 2pm on the previous Sunday. It will close at 5pm on the Friday evening, or earlier if all the places are taken.
  • If you don’t get a place on a particular Sunday, you’ll be offered one for the following Sunday.
  • At the time of booking, please provide your name and phone number (or email address) and the names of up to two other people coming with you from your household. We need this information for the Scottish Government's Test and Protect system.
  • The church is marked out for seating at around 1m distancing. Family groups can sit together.
  • Entry to the service might not be possible unless you have reserved a place. Please don’t turn up without having booked!

 

Here is some more information about what you will find when you arrive 

  • The Church will be open from 10am.
  • Please wait on the marked spots outside the church until a steward invites you in.
  • You will be asked to apply hand sanitiser and wear a face covering, to maximise the protection of other people.
  • You will be shown to a specific seat.
  • We can now sing live in church as long as wearing a face covering.
  • When Communion is being celebrated, please bring your own bread and wine/juice, along with something to drink from.
  • Toilets are available.
  • A social time with coffee, tea, and juice will be take place in the halls after the service.
  • There will be a retiring collection plate at the door as you leave. There is also a contactless machine for credit and debit cards. You can also give by bank transfer, use the donate button on the website, or write a cheque and send to the treasurer via the church office.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Church!
