We have so much to give the Lord our God thanks for over many years at Westwoodhill. After the recent announcement from the Scottish government we have reached a point where we can make progress and move towards a more normal church life while maintaining a safe system for everyone who joins us.
We are delighted to let everyone know that many of our church activities will be starting back very soon and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to our church.
This coming Sunday will see another delicate change to our all age service and you will see from the picture our seating layout has returned to a more normal setup. We are delighted that we are moving ever closer to normal life and look forward to this Sunday where we will once again give God praise and thanks together. However we are aware that many are still nervous and need a little more time to settle back to normal life. So we ask that as we arrive on Sunday that households leave a seat between them and another household and take the opportunity to encourage one another through mutual love and respect.
We are so thankful as always to our band and technical team who have managed over the previous 18 months to aide us continue in our praise and worship both online and in church and we will continue to utilise our online church services to support our brothers and sisters who cannot join with us for a variety of reasons. However we are at a point we believe that God is calling us Back to Church, so please make it your plan to come along this Sunday and let us worship together in person.
Our holiday club is in full swing with our children having fun and learning about our amazing God. We have a safe space for families with babies and toddlers to watch along and play. Our upstairs is ready with safe space for everyone and our new upstairs room is still 2m distanced for those who wish to use it.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.Hebrews 10:24-25
Finally please remember as we all move back towards a more normal life there are simple things we can carry on doing to keep ourselves safer as recommended by the health minister.
To stay safe you should:
- wear a face covering, clean hands and surfaces regularly
- self isolate and take a PCR test if you have symptoms
- take regular tests if you don’t have symptoms to reduce the risk of spreading the virus
- move outside if you can, and open windows when indoors
- keep your distance from people not in your group
- get the vaccine when you are offered it
