A prayer railing has been created at Kilcreggan pier,
as well as outside St Modan's
and Craigrownie Parish Churches
The Three lochside churches in our peninsula
will remain closed
for the time being,
despite updated Scottish Government guidance
allowing kirks to open for private prayer sessions.
Under phase two of the country’s route map
out of lockdown
places of worship were given the green light
to open for private prayer from June 22,
as long as physical distancing rules
and hygiene safeguards are complied with.
St Modan’s Parish Church in Rosneath, Craigrownie Parish Church near Cove,
and Garelochhead Parish Church
will not be re-opening yet.
To compensate for the continued closures,
have been created at St Modan’s
and Craigrownie Parish Churches,
and at Kilcreggan pier,
for anyone wishing to take part
in a private prayer session.
The latest guidance from the Scottish Government on the easing of lockdown limits
says that churches across the country
may be allowed to re-open
for communal worship later this month
if scientific and health advice permits,
as part of phase three
of the country’s route out of lockdown.
the government’s position is that that re-opening –
if it happens –
won’t happen before Thursday, July 23.
