Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions our churches have a maximum capacity of 50 for Masses during weekdays and Sundays.

The Church in Scotland is part of a wider community in which the possibilities of virus transmission are still high.  Since we were last able to worship communally, a variant of the virus which is significantly more transmissible has become the dominant strain in Scotland.  It is essential, therefore, that the hygiene practices for the safety of those participating in communal worship are strictly adhered to.

These include but are not limited to:

  • The wearing of face coverings in church by the faithful (unless the person has a valid exemption from this regulation)
  • Physical distancing of people within the church building
  • Stewarding of the church premises to assist the faithful 
  • As much ventilation as possible in the church to minimise the risk of aerosol transmission
  • Frequent hand cleansing, either with sanitiser or washing
  • Suitable one-way systems in the building to prevent excessive interaction between people from different households and separate entrance and exit points where possible
  • Cleaning of the church building after each act of public worship
  • Keeping a register of names and a contact detail of those in attendance at each gathering
  • The timely departure of the faithful after the acts of worship avoiding congregating in car parks or on the streets outside the church.
