Airdrie High Kirk


Airdrie High Church is re-opening on Sunday 9th August at 11.30am. 

A few points to note for the re-opening:

Face Coverings - The first minister has annouced that it will be mandatory to wear face coverings in all places of worship. We will have face masks available as you enter the church so don't worry if you forget yours. There will also be a hand sanitising station for you to clean your hands before entering the sanctuary. Wipes are being provided to all open pews within the sanctuary. 

Parking - There will be no parking in the church car park apart from those who need to park there owing to disability. 

Contactless Payment - We now have a tablet that allows you to make a donation using contactless technology using your credit or debit card. We will still be accepting cash but this will not be getting touched and counted until next week. 

Open Doors - The new guidance requires u to ensure good flow of air throughout the church building. Therefore, throughout the service, we will keep open both sets of double doors at the back of the sanctuary. 

Hymms - There will be no singning throughout the service but there will be music played. 

We are working hard to comply with the new guidance in this public health emergency. The welcome at the High will still be very friendly and heartfelt on Sunday and every Sunday thereafter.  

Please see information sheet below for more details.

We welcome everyone to our Sunday Services and to the other activities that are on offer in the church throughout the week or at special events through the year.
