KEEPING YOU SAFE
Some people are at higher risk from Covid-19 than others. Please look over the guidance here to ensure you know your individual risk
There will be social distancing in place, as per government guidelines, within the building and we will always aim to accommodate those who are less comfortable or nervous sitting beside others
If you are nervous or uncomfortable please speak to one of the stewards who will find you a seat where you feel comfortable.
If you have any Covid-19 symptoms, however mild, please stay at home for the sake of those attending
Your contact information will be stored for government contact tracing teams in the event that someone who attends tests positive for Covid-19
If you have not signed up on the day, we will take your contact details for track and trace purposes on arrival
Face coverings must be worn inside the venues at all times unless you are exempt from wearing one or in one of the instances below.
Due to Omicron Variant the Church of Scotland advise everyone to undertake a Lateral Flow Test prior to participating in any Church Service or gathering (in line with Government advice). Please DO NOT attend if you have a positive test or exhibit symptoms, instead book a PCR test, self-isolate and join worship online. Continue to wear a face covering, use hand sanitiser and keep a safe physical distance from other households.
We thank you for adhering to all guidance,
take care and help us all to stay safe.
Galston Parish church has now received a limited number of lateral flow test kits that we would like to make available to the community. As this is a new venture for us, please check our Facebook page for distribution days. For now, anyone might be able to stop by on a Sunday before or after the 11am Worship Service while the kits are still available. We hope to get regular delivery of the kits to make available to the community for as long as possible.
Galston Parish Church of Scotland has served the people of Galston and the wider community in and around the Irvine Valley for more than 750 years. The current church building has been here for over two centuries. People from every walk of life attend Galston Kirk, enjoying the sense of fellowship that comes from being part of the the Christian church both locally and, through our work with in Malawi and with our partner church in Ahrensfelde in Germany. Moreover, like Christians worldwide, we are very much part of our local community, buying from local shops and services, enjoying the social life of the Valley and taking part in clubs, societies and other organisations that enrich life in our part of Ayrshire. If you would like to learn more about joining our family, please feel free to come to a Sunday service or get in touch with the minister, the Reverend Kristina Cook.
Our church is a busy, friendly place with lots of activities and events taking place regularly. From organisations associated with the church, such as the Boys Brigade and The Guild, to other groups, such as the Fitness League and the local Kick Boxers, our facilities are regularly used by many different members of the local community, whether they are churchgoers or not.
