Everyone is welcome at Port Glasgow New Parish Church – Remember to familiarise yourself with the restrictions if you plan to come along to our church building this weekend –
***Please remember if you or someone you live with has symptoms of Coronavirus, please don’t book a place to attend church***
If you are planning on booking a place, please familiarise yourself with the following restrictions-
There will be one entrance at the front of the Church and one at the link for those unable to use the front steps. You will be required to wear a mask at all times unless you are unable due to health reasons. You must sanitise your hands on entry and exit.
As it is a requirement to have social distancing of 2 metres, the available seats will be marked on the pews and you will be escorted to one of them. It is fairly safe to say that you will not be sitting in your normal pew seat. Husbands and wives and members of the same family who are living in the same household can still sit beside each other.
You will be asked to follow a member of the Duty Team who will escort you to your seat as a oneway system will be operating throughout the Church.
The offering will be collected as you enter and you just need to place it in the plate at the table situated at the door entrance.
Unfortunately, due to Government restrictions singing is not permitted, however, Mark will be playing, the words will be on the screens and you can hum along. There will be no Orders of Service and unfortunately for those who require the Hymns printed in a larger format, these will not available.
As only 40 people will be permitted each Sunday, it has been decided that the fairest way is for people to phone and book a seat the day before. You need to phone Frances Boyd between 9am and 12 noon on the Saturday prior to the Sunday. If you would like France’s number, please private message our page.
Only those who have booked a place by phone will be allowed access to the church. If more than 40 book, number 41 onwards will be given priority for the following week before it is opened to others
Whilst we wish that everyone could be back in church together, unfortunately, this is not permitted at the moment. You need to feel comfortable with the situation and if you are isolating or showing signs of the infection you SHOULD NOT come to Church.
Unfortunately, until we establish our new routine there will be no Sunday Club anyone over 12 years of age are welcome but must sit in their household group/bubble.
It is our hope and prayer that this situation will not last too long, as we look forward to the time when our whole congregation can be together once more enjoying fellowship and getting to know William, who is just so eager to meet all of us,
Take care and we will see you soon
William, Robert, Sheena and France

WhatsApp Prayer Group
If you would like to be part of the WhatsApp Prayer Group contact Helen Eckford on 07709 932767
To be a Christian without prayer, is no more possible than to be alive without breathing. (Martin Luther)
We have so many people and so many things to pray for in Port Glasgow: New Parish Church that we need all the help we can get. Each member of the group will receive a list which will be updated regularly, of people and things that we need to pray for. You then do this in your own time and space.
Remember too, the book in the vestibule of the church where you can write the name of anyone you know who needs support through prayer.
Every week, in Port Glasgow: New Parish Church members of the Pastoral Group visit members who are ill, in hospital or in Nursing homes. This dedicated team are a strength to the members and are always welcomed in.
BUT we do not always know who is in need, so please let Sheena or Robert know if you think anyone needs a visit.
If you know of anyone who you think is in need to be seen by Jack, again please let Sheena or Robert know.
Jack is visiting as many members on the list as he possibly can but as his time is limited we need to ensure that the neediest are visited first
