Services & Reflections during Covid-19

In July, the Scottish Government announced that we were now entering Phase 3 of the easing of lockdown. This has only been possible thanks to the people of Scotland who have worked hard to keep themselves and each other safe, so thank you for all you have done, and continue to do. The Scottish Episcopal Church has been producing guidance for churches, which the Vestry (trustees) and Rector of St Mark’s have been following. (You can see the guidance from the SEC here: https://www.scotland.anglican.org/coronavirus-updates/)

SUNDAY WORSHIP

Sunday mornings in the church building: Every Sunday we meet for Holy Communion at 10am in the church building. We are operating a booking service – please contact cometochurch@stmarksportobello.org if you would like to attend.

We have put in place hygiene and social distancing measures, so please help by adhering to our procedures. Please wear a face mask unless you are medically exempt. Do not attend if you feel unwell or have been in contact with anyone with Covid-19.

Online Services: We meet online for a Zoom service every Thursday at 10am and at least twice a month on Sundays (morning or evening). If you would like to join us on Zoom, there is a link on this page. There are also opportunities to pray with us on YouTube

PRIVATE PRAYER
Our church building is open for private prayer on Wednesdays 10am – 11.30am, with hygiene and social distancing measures in place.
