INFORMATION FROM EDINBURGH

Worship

We are very conscious of the need to provide spiritual resources in this time, both nationally and locally. While physical services are cancelled, a number of churches are moving to offer online worship. We will be providing a recorded service every Sunday via the Church of Scotland website and social media platforms, as well as transcripts which can be printed and delivered to those who are not able to access online resources. We will also be aiming to provide guidance and ideas for how congregations can connect with each other and offer spiritual practices for members to follow in their own time. This will, from next week, include webinars to help you learn how to use online tools to connect with your local congregation and community. For this purpose we have created a dedicated page (here) on the Church of Scotland website which will be updated over the days and weeks ahead. Please stay in touch with us to let us know what training and resources would be useful at this time and recommendations of what is working for you locally which we can share with your colleagues, using the mailbox faithnurture@churchofscotland.org.uk

Radio and Television/Social Media

Early conversations with BBC Scotland about a possible Sunday service to be broadcast are taking place; further details will be released as they become available. The Moderator of the General Assembly, the Right Reverend Colin Sinclair, has prepared a brief act of worship, and this will be available on the Church's website, and on social media, from the morning of Sunday 22nd March 2020. He will also deliver a live daily reflection on Facebook beginning on the morning of Monday 23rd March, at 10 am (here).
