Easing of COVID restrictions

The most recent easing of Covid restrictions means that from tomorrow there is no longer a legal requirement to wear face coverings for worship. The advice is that, because face coverings provide a measure of protection from infection it is wise to continue to wear them. We would also encourage you to continue to spread out as much as is reasonable in Church. The easing of restrictions only applies to worship. At all other events within church premises it will still be compulsory to wear face coverings until 18th April.

Teas & Tots

Come chat and play at Dalmeny Kirk Teas & Tots. We meet Tuesdays (term-time) from 9.30-11.00am. A number of play areas are set up for children to enjoy. We close our time with a story and song. Tea & coffee will be available for adults.

Teas & Tots is on a short break over the school holidays. We will meet again on: 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st May & 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th June.

Thank you.

Some of you will have noticed that Dalmeny has a freshly resurfaced Church Car park . Although we still have further work to do in terms of planting under the trees, putting in bays and sorting the overhanging trees. This is indeed an asset to the church and church centre. The funding for this and some other projects we have in the planning stages was from an Adapt and Thrive Grant (Scottish Government Covid recovery funds). We are very grateful for this boost to our current low level of funds and we also hope to put in technical equipment to enable live streaming from Dalmeny for: Services, weddings, funerals and concerts, plus other new areas of mission and outreach. More about that in future months.
