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,

‘prayer railings’

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.


at present

the government’s position is that that re-opening –

if it happens –

won’t happen before Thursday, July 23.
