Covid-19 Guidance

The following links to various Scottish Government and other guidance documents are provided, and congregations are advised to consult these as appropriate. These guidance documents are updated from time to time - the links below should take you to the most up-to-date version of each guidance document but please do check every time that you are reading the most recent version. 


  • Scottish Government: guidance for the safe use of places of worship - This guidance should be the starting point for congregations to consult, as all relevant matters for churches should either be covered by or referred to in it. Where matters are not covered within the document itself, appropriate separate guidance is signposted, with links. These include, but are by no means limited to, those listed below. 










The Free Church of Scotland COVID-19 Group offers support to congregations in matters relating to the pandemic and are happy to answer specific questions put to them.
