Shettleston New Church, like many churches across the land, was required to close doors when the country went into lockdown from the end of March 2020 until September 2020. And again from December 2020 until March 2021. The congregation were able to worship online thanks to YouTube sermons and this was supplemented by regular emails from our minister and our Discipleship Facilitator.
We re-opened for Sunday worship on 28th March 2021, Palm Sunday. Currently, and in line with government guidance, a limited amount of people can attend services. Restrictions to services also require the use of face coverings, keeping a 2 metre distance to name some.
Some midweek activities are meeting in the building; Brownies and Rainbows but as yet, other youth are still meeting by digital means. See the Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Boys' Brigade pages for more info.
Our toddlers group is not meeting at present, but we are looking at getting this going again as soon as possible.
If you would like to come to one of our Sunday morning worship service (at 11am), please contact your elder if you are a member at Shettleston New, or please email Douglas Robertson at DJRoberston@churchofscotland.org.uk to request a seat and some information on what to expect when you come to church. Youth work in the church during the service (our "Totz zone", "X-Zone" and "Y-zone" are operating with face coverings and social distancing. Please get in touch to find out more!
Our church services have also been livestreamed most weeks on YouTube – just go to the

Also on this YouTube channel, you’ll find one explaining how the entry and exit procedures work for our services at the moment as well as playlists for our previous online services.
Due to the ongoing risks from COVID-19, we are not currently running any other activities inside the church at the moment and, at present, we cannot give a target date for when they might re-start. Our youth organisations have been meeting online. If interested, please see their page for more information.
Once again, thank you for visiting our website. We would be delighted if you were able to join us, whether online or in-person, to worship our Lord and Saviour, or to find out about more the Christian faith.

ABOUT SHETTLESTON NEW CHURCH OF SCOTLAND
Faith. Passion. Community. Worship. These are the cornerstones behind Shettleston New Church of Scotland, and we approach each day with these in mind. Constituted in 2007, the congregation meet in the former Eastbank Church building which first opened in 1904. Becoming a church member means joining a family who, each day, are devoted to expressing their love of God.
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
