We are very proud of the the fact that the churches in Garvald and Morham are open every day for everyone and anyone to visit.
Sadly we have just been informed by Church of Scotland HQ that all churches are to be locked as an additional precaution to try and prevent the spread of Covid-19.
However, the two graveyards are lovely peaceful spots on a Spring Day and we encourage you to include them in your daily walks.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
As you have probably gathered from the news ,there will be no church services in Garvald or Morham for the next few weeks.
However both churches remain open every day and you are more than welcome to visit, enjoy the peace, say a prayer, do some piano practice (or any musical instrument) and appreciate the daffodils.

The children of Garvald will be performing at the church on Saturday 1st June, followed by a chance to enjoy some tea and cake. TICKETS: £5 on the door.
This will start at 6 pm so anyone with evening plans (e.g. watching the Champions League football or going out for dinner) can fit in an early evening musical extravaganza BEFORE they go!!
This week is Christian Aid week so envelopes will appear through your letter-boxes and our collectors will be calling round later to collect any donations.
This video tells you a bit about the work Christian Aid does in some of the poorest countries in the world: Christian Aid video Tenneh’s Story – Christian Aid Week 2019. A short film featuring Nurse Judith and mum Tenneh in Sierra Leone.
Please be as generous as you have in the past, so that collectively we can send some help to those so much less fortunate than ourselves. Thank you.
