Sanctuary First has been pioneering much of the Church of Scotland's online worship, the links below in this current time of isolation are more valuable than ever.  All of  these can be accessed by following the links shown.

  • Each day from Monday to Friday from 10am to 12noon - The Virtual Coffee Shop - grab a coffee at home and join us for conversation with our resident hosts Laura, Linda and Albert. Open to all. (Note: this group is not broadcast outside the coffee shop meeting).

  • Every evening at 6pm, join Rev Alec Shuttleworth for Evening prayer and a time for reflection.

  • Every Sunday at 3pm - Sunday Live Worship service.   Open to all live on the website and live on facebook @SanctuaryFirst.

  • Every Tuesday at 8pm - Connect group (Bible readings and discussion group). Email us  or message via our Facebookpage to join an existing group - Or, why not use the material to run a group of your own?
