Church Services Cancelled
In the light of the advice received from Church of Scotland, we have
no choice but to cancel all church services and meetings for the
foreseeable future, until we are instructed that it is safe to resume.
This is obviously a great disappointment, but it is the only course of
action in the present circumstances.

Try Praying, from Ruth Torrance - Please could I ask our church family to pray
for all those who are taking the booklets that Abbey church has made available,
that they will be encouraged and it will be the seed of something that takes
root and blossoms in their life. If you would like to display your own perspex
box in your garden you can order one directly from the link below for £14.50. I
can supply the booklets for you. https://thereishope.co.u+k/product/perspex-

A number of members have contacted Abbey Church for advice on how they can
continue to make financial contributions during the current crisis. This is
appreciated as the running costs of the church continue, much as before,
including the costs of our staff. In addition, the significant income which we
generally receive for the use of our premises has now stopped completely.
For those who already contribute via standing order, the church should
continue to receive these offerings (and any associated Gift Aid) provided the
giver's financial circumstances enable this to continue.
For those who generally contribute through envelopes or by putting cash in the
offering bags, there are a number of options:
By payment into the Church bank Account at the Bank of Scotland either
electronically or in person.
By standing order
