Rev Dr Benjamin Byun, wishes you a peaceful 2021.
We are very pleased to be able to confirm that Benjamin has commenced a phased return to work allowing a resumption of in person worship at our church. Initially our services will take place on a fortnightly basis on the following Sundays
9th and 23rd May and
6th and 20th June.
Matters will then be reviewed with the hope that weekly Sunday services can resume later in the summer.
The usual covid restrictions on physical distancing and hygiene apply. At present it is not necessary to book places in advance, although seating will be allocated on arrival and it will not be possible to choose your seat.
For those Sundays when there is no service, or for those not able to attend, the Moderator has curated online services, available each Sunday. You can watch or listen to worship services:
You can also find A List of Churches that livestream services or offer us as downloadable recording at the Church of Scotland website:https://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/worship/services-online
Ruthrieston West Church is part of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland.
We believe that worshipping together (albiet it not always physically together at the moment), brings us closer to God and helps us live more meaningful lives.
We have been serving the community since 1872.
Unfortnately due the the current Covid-19 restrictions our groups are not able to meet at present. However, we look forward to being able to meet in person again when allowed to do so.
As well as faith based groups, Sunday Club and the Guild, we have various social groups and also host a number of community based groups.
