Advice to Stay Safe, follow the FACTS:

New Restrictions from 5th January 2021

From 5th January 2021 a national lockdown (similar to March 2020) has been announced until the Spring.

People in Scotland are legally required to stay at home, except for essential purposes, until the end of the lockdown period.

A maximum of two people from up to two households will be able to meet outside, although children aged 11 and under won't be counted in that limit.

No-one is allowed to leave a level four area - or travel in or out of Scotland - except for an essential purpose.

Places of worship must close, with the exception of funeral services (up to a maximum of 20 people) and weddings (maximum of five).

Nicola Sturgeon says the current expectation is that by early May everyone over 50, and people under 50 with specific underlying conditions, will have received at least their first dose of Covid vaccine.

All mainland Scotland is currently in Level 4.

Further details can be found via Level 4 Measures.

Our Latest Sermon Notes
My immediate thought was, I have run out of things to say! Don't rejoice too quickly! There is a sermon for today. I looked at the reading for the first Sunday of Lent. By the way, I hope you knew we are now in the season of Lent. We are in the run up to Easter. I looked at the reading for today and wondered what am I going to say that I have not already said, about the temptations of Jesus. I was 'tempted' to look out an old sermon and see if any one noticed. Can I say, I have not done that, but if something I say does sounds familiar, it is probably because I have said it before.
