Although the Scottish Government has said that churches  may re-open for worship, Kingswells Church will not be re-opening in the immediate future.

We have a number of precautionary measures and documents to complete before we can even consider re-opening.

When we do re-open there will be a maximum number we can admit to maintain the 2 metre physical distancing. Given the size and layout of the sanctuary at Kingswells numbers will be extremely restricted.  Face coverings will be required, contact details will have to be taken for Track & Trace,  and in accordance with government guidance services will not be as normal e.g. there will be no singing of hymns or coffee after worship.

Further inforamtion and guidance for attending services will be issued when we are in a position to re-open the building.



Lenten Book Study – During this year’s journey through Lent, the focus is the deepening of our sense of God’s presence in our personal and communal lives. We are reading Barbara Brown Taylor’s book “An Altar in the World.” If you wish, you are invited to join one of the two groups meeting for reflection and conversation, either on Wednesday 9:30 am in the Vestry or Thursday 7:00 pm in the Manse. Laurene has a few copies for purchase. A study guide is also available.

Please join us for this rich opportunity to explore and deepen our understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus during these most interesting times.

Our new session got off on a high with an excellent presentation from a representative of the relatively new charity ‘Playlist for Life’. This charity was set up by Sally Magnusson following her, and her family’s, experience nursing their Mother through Dementia. It has been proved that by playing to a sufferer his/her favourite music they relax and indeed, in some measure, ‘come back’. All of us at the meeting were encouraged to make our own lists!

As I write this we are looking forward to our Lunchtime meeting on Tuesday the 28th when Ian Gow will speak about his involvement in ‘Aid2Gambia’. Our Christmas Celebration is on Tuesday the 19th December at 7.3opm. Our first meeting of 2018 is another Lunchtime meeting at 12.30pm when our very own Dorothy Taylor will entertain us.

You are very welcome to join us if and when you can - it will be good to meet up with you.
