Christmas 2021

Rev Grant Maclaughlan writes: “We have had to learn to keep our distance as we have continued to live with Covid this year. We are discouraged from getting too close to other people- no handshakes, no hugs. At Christmas, as we remember the birth of Jesus, we celebrate that he was also known as ‘Immanuel’- God with us.

This Christmas may we know that God is with us and experience the love, hope, joy and peace that comes through His presence.”

Everyone is welcome to join us for any of our services or events:

Sunday 12th December – after church, carol singing outside pre-arranged homes in the area.

Sunday 19th December – 11am, Carol Service.
Sunday 19th December – 6pm – 8pm, ‘Blue Christmas’. The chance to reflect, talk, light a candle, pray or just sit quietly in the church entrance.

Friday 24th December – 7pm, Christmas Eve Service.

Christmas Day – 10am, Family Service in the church hall (enter by Shaftesbury Terrace).

Sunday 26th December – 11am, Boxing Day Service in church.

All of our Services will be led by our Minister, Rev. Grant Maclaughlan.

There will be a retiring collection for Bethany Trust at both the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day service.

Level 0 worship arrangements

** Updated 14th October 2021 **

On Monday 19th July, Dundee moved into Covid level 0, so we have slightly adjusted our arrangements for worship.

We are worshipping in church every Sunday at 11am, and our website services will be taken from Invergowrie church.

Main changes:
– We can sing (behind our masks),
– The new distancing arrangements mean that we can use more pews,
– Pew cushions have been replaced,
– Continue to bring your refreshments to enjoy in the church hall afterwards

It would be lovely to see you back in the church building, but please don’t come if you don’t feel it is right for you.

Do not attend if you are isolating, have any symptoms of Covid-19 or if you have been in contact with anyone with Covid-19 in the last 14 days.

These are the full arrangements:

  • You must wear a mask / face covering in the building, unless you are exempt.
  • You might want to bring a bible as pew bibles have been put away for now.

  • Come to the main door on Blackness Avenue. Flat access is available via the Shaftesbury Terrace door.
  • Aim to arrive 10-15 minutes earlier than normal to ensure all can be seated by 11.00am.
  • Wait outside in a socially distanced manner until you are invited to enter the building. This will be one (or one household) at a time.

  • As you come in you will be asked to read some notices, put on your mask / face covering and use the hand sanitiser provided.

  • You will need to give your name and phone number. This is to comply with NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect programme.
  • Please wait until you are directed to a pew.
  • Every other pew is in use.
  • Please maintain social distance.
  • The disabled toilet is the only toilet available. Leave the church at the front right door to access this toilet via the corridor.
  • At the end of the service, please maintain social distancing as you leave.
  • Please bring your own refreshments, and join us in the hall for a chat afterwards.
  • Children are very welcome but there will not be a Sunday Club. We suggest you bring activities for your children to do during the sermon.
  • Please bring any monetary donations in an envelope and leave them the box provided; cheques would be preferable to cash.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20

And for those who choose not to attend, we will be praying for you, and a time when we can all worship together in person.
