Church and COVID-19

We are excited that we can now worship together, even if limited in number and without singing. Church won’t look like our idea of normal and we’re aware that returning to church is not appropriate for everyone. However we trust that the experience will be spiritually fulfilling, rich in fellowship and blessing.

How do I sign up?

We have two Sunday morning services at 9:30 and 11:30. If you would like to attend please fill in this form: Service Attendance 25 Oct –  15 Nov Tick as many options as you can, and we will do our best to fit you in as often as possible. Completing a form does not guarantee you a space at any given service. Seats will be allocated midweek prior to each service and you will receive an email confirming your place and providing further details. Please do not come to Buccleuch if you have not received a confirmation email.
