Latest News of Carriden

In line with the continuing easing of Government Covid-19 restrictions,normal services will resume in Blackness and Carriden Churches. Weekly in Carriden Church at 11.15am and on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month in Blackness Church at 10.00 am.

To comply with Government guidelines the church buildings have been adapted and changes made as to how a church service may be conducted. Additional volunteers will be on hand to keep us on the right track and keep us safe. You will need to wear a face covering but you no longer need to phone to book your place. Your attendance will be recorded as you enter the church.

While the procedures are not difficult, it will be important to stay alert and obey all the signs.

The legal requirement for physical distancing and limits on gatherings will be removed on 9 August when all venues across Scotland are able to re-open.

Some protective measures will stay in place such as the use of face coverings indoors and the collection of contact details as part of Test and Protect. Capacity limits of 2000 people indoors and 5000 people outdoors will also remain in place although some exceptions may be possible on a case by case basis. These will be reviewed on a three weekly basis to ensure they remain proportionate.

Adults identified as close contacts of someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 will also no longer be automatically required to self-isolate for 10 days from 9 August. Anyone who is double-vaccinated with at least two weeks passed since their second dose and who has no symptoms will be able to end self-isolation if they return a negative PCR test. The same conditions will also apply to anyone aged between five and 17 years old, even if they have not been vaccinated. The requirement to take a PCR test will not apply to children under the age of five.
