We had some great news this week St Andrew’s Ardrossan will begin services again on Sunday 16th August at 10am. This will include the Dalry and Irvine congregations so we have adjusted the time to a more familiar start for them. St Peter’s Dalry will have their first service on Sunday 30th August at 10am and St Andrew’s Irvine must wait until the Church of Scotland decides on their time of opening again.
You will probably find it a bit different from our previous services before lockdown. We now have social distancing of 2 metres between the seating so people either as individuals, couples or family groups can be safe.
When you arrive in church you will be asked to sanitise your hands and wear a mask then we have been asked to note your name for contact tracing.
A plate for offering envelopes of each congregation will be at the entrance and if you forget it will still be available as you leave.
A sidesperson will than guide you to a suitable seat (please note there are no runners on the pews so you might wish to bring a cushion for comfort).
The service will be visual using the projector but if you need a liturgy to follow the service ask a sidesperson.
During worship we won’t sing hymns or the Gloria and Sanctus but both will be read by the congregation as normal.
When we come to communion a sidesperson will guide you from your seat but please maintain the 2 metre distance where possible.
When you reach the sanctuary steps please use the hand sanitising station (if you have difficulty with the sanctuary steps use the access via the eagle lectern)
There is a one way system towards the altar entering by the right lane please then stand to receive the sacrament and then exit in the opposite lane.
The altar can accommodate three people for social distancing one at each end and one in the middle of the altar rail. After receiving the sacrament please visit the hand sanitising station at the sanctuary steps before returning to your seat.
If anyone has mobility difficulties the sacrament can be brought to them at their seat. At the end of the service please sanitise your hands as you leave the church.
Due to social distancing if you plan to be at church on those Sundays please call 01294 465193 (Canon Sandy’s telephone) so we can have an indication of numbers to expect. Look forward to seeing you all again. God Bless.
The Royal British Legion is working with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to keep alive the memory of those who fell in the First World War, for future generations. They would like every single man and woman from across the Commonwealth who fell to be individually commemorated by those alive today. This is your chance to take part in a truly historic and incredibly significant act of Remembrance.
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Service charity providing care and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission ensures that 1.7 million people who died in the two world wars will never be forgotten. They care for cemeteries and memorials at 23,000 locations, in 153 countries. Their values and aims, laid out in 1917, are as relevant now as they were almost 100 years ago.
