Unfortunately, due to the challenges presented to us in making the Quarterly Plan, it is not possible to continue with the fortnightly on-line Zoom service. However, other churches in the Circuit, including the City of Edinburgh Methodist, Grahamston United, Stirling Methodist and Livingston United Churches are broadcasting their services on Zoom and/or YouTube. The Forth Valley Circuit website has links to these services.
In-person worship at Rosyth has been happening since the last lockdown, with Rosyth Methodist and St Margaret’s SEC meeting on alternate Sundays. This has worked well, but it is now felt that we can recommence weekly worship beginning on Sunday 3 October. For October, St Margaret’s will meet at 9:30am, and Rosyth Methodist will meet at 11:15am, to give a little more time for post-worship cleaning in between services.
Even though we are at a level described as ‘Beyond Level 0’ in Scotland, we are encouraged to keep to the Covid protocols of hand sanitizing, wearing of facemasks, trace and protect, and 1 metre social distancing. At this point, refreshments will not be served following worship.
On the 4th Sunday of every month, beginning on Sunday 26 September 2021, we will resume the practice of worshipping together in a joint service with St Margaret’s at 10:30am. Future joint services for the remainder of 2021 will take place on 24 October. 28 November and 26 December.
