You will all probably be aware that the Scottish Government has advised that people should minimise social contact by avoiding crowded areas and large gatherings, including religious congregations, and smaller gatherings, listing areas which were of concern.
In the light of the above, and in line with the communication from the Church of Scotland Task Group, all gatherings for worship will cease at the West Kirk of Calder and Polbeth Harwood Church until further notice.
This is with immediate effect and will include Easter services.
Our churches will however be open to the whole community for personal prayer on Sundays between 10am and 12 noon. This is NOT intended to be a gathering - people can come and go as they please between these times.
Notices will be put up outside the Church as well as on our website and Facebook page. However, it would be very helpful if you would let people know who may not see these notices or notifications.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any kind of support during this time.
