Scotland has entered phase three of easing lockdown restrictions which means the start of churches gathering again. At the moment, they are still limited to 50 people per gathering and congregational singing is still not permitted. As I’ve shared before, some of these restrictions are very important for the church in Scotland due to congregations tending to be elderly, and so more vulnerable.

Today, join with us in prayer for churches that are beginning to gather again. Though worship will still not feel like it used to, it is good to gather together for prayer and to hear the Word preached. Pray that there would not be a spike in the number of cases. Pray that churches are able to effectively implement all of the practices needed to keep members and congregants safe. Pray that unbelievers who have been tuning into church livestreams would be curious about visiting a church in person.
