Updated Rules for Gathered Worship at Bon Accord:

The church building is open for gathered worship. The numbers allowed are determined by the size of the building and the ability to maintain 1m social distancing.  By using the gallery, the numbers can be significantly increased subject to careful stewarding of the congregation.  In this regard it is anticipated that those in the gallery will exit the building at the end of the service by way of the north tower door.

Registering in advance remains helpful for Test and Protect.

Information on changes to the church building layout and operating procedures for people in the building is available on the church website. Included in this information is the Scottish Government guidance stating that it is mandatory for members of the congregation to always wear a face mask when in the church building.

 

 

Crèche and Activities for children under 7:

Over the summer there will be creche and activities for children under 7 downstairs in the hall during the morning service.
