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/)
