Join us to worship in person

We are thankful to be gathering for worship in
St Monans Church
.

Worship is on Sunday at 9:30am.

 
We hope you will be encouraged and
book your place to join us.

While the start time of 9.30 am is the same, much has changed and this information provides an outline of what to expect to keep us safe and meet the necessary requirements for welcoming you to worship.

Booking a place

 

  • Numbers are restricted to 40 in the Church to enable physical distancing.

  • It will be necessary to book a place  This can be done by contacting Duncan Reekie (email: duncanreekie@talktalk.net)  Bookings will be accepted from Monday to Friday at 5:00pm, prior to the service you wish to attend.  Your booking will be confirmed.

  • If there are less than 40 bookings on any given Sunday, you will be able to turn up and walk in. If you have not booked and there are 40 places reserved, you will not be able to attend the service.

What to bring with you (we are unable to hand anything out)

  • Face covering, you will need to wear it throughout the service

  • Bible, if you wish to follow along with readings

  • Your offering, remember we were unable to collect offerings for several months

  • A cushion if you need one. There will not be any pew cushions.

Please remember to take your Bible and cushion home at the end of the service​

What to expect when you arrive

  • You will be greeted by our Welcome Team. Please follow their directions.

  • Your contact details will be confirmed for Test and Trace purposes.

  • There will be hand sanitiser available on entry and exit.  Please use it!

  • Your offering will be collected as you enter.

  • We are required to fill the church from the back to the front.  You will therefore be directed to a seat.  There will be no choice of seating, so we can enable social distancing.  Members of the same household will be able to sit together.

During the service and departing

  • The service is an opportunity to worship and praise God, along with other people, though the format is different to what we are used to

  • There may be music, but no singing as this risks spreading the virus more vigorously

  • Exit at the end of the service will be through the door nearest your seat.  You will be directed by the Welcome Team.

  • Be mindful of social distancing and not holding others up when leaving by chatting too long.

  • We are unable to serve tea and coffee after the service, due to restrictions.


We realise this means adapting to new processes and forms of worship, so we can meet current requirements.  Our priority is on being open and worshiping safely, by reducing risks to a minimum.  We will continue to review the situation and make any necessary changes quickly.  Please speak to one of the Welcome Team or your Elder if you have any thoughts to share.
