April Newsletter - we will mail out the April Newsletter and your Palm cross in the last week of March. At the moment we do not know when church buildings may be open for worship again. If there are restrictions in place we may decide to delay opening up because it is difficult to manage and doesn't give a very good experience for everyone. Please keep an eye on this page where all details will be posted as they become available.

We are churches of all sorts of families and households. There are people who come to church alone, with friends, with partners, wives, husbands.....and their dog. The Scottish Episcopal Church welcomes people of all sexualities, discovering who we are is a life-long process for all of us. Both of the churches in this United Benefice welcome LGBT people, their friends and partners. We have worked hard at being a safe space for people to come and discover the depth of their faith, to feed on the jewels of the scriptures and feast on the sacraments. Same-sex couples can be married in both churches too. Come and join us with your household to find out more about belonging in the Scottish Episcopal Church - you are welcome!
