Coronavirus Advice

March 14, 2020

In response to the outbreak of CoViD-19, we encourage members to read the guidelines issued by the Church of Scotland.

https://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/resources/advice-for-churches-covid-19-coronavirus

TPC has appointed Jen Barge, Phil Malloch and Brian McKenzie to keep the church abreast of developments promptly.

TPC has reinforced its already good hygiene practices:    In the café, staff may continue to serve scones etc kept under cover, using tongs. On Sundays there will be no biscuits at tea/coffee.

So that church services etc can safely stay open for the healthy – as long as permitted – anyone, of any age, who feels newly unwell is asked not to attend that week. We advise those most at risk of complications (elderly, and/or with underlying health problems) to stay at home meantime, and listen on-line if you can (see below).

To save you touching door handles, the welcome team will open the front door for you as you arrive. The doors to the Ladies and Gents Toilets will be wedged open. Don’t remove the wedge!

Please bring your own Bible, or read it on the screen.

Use Soap and Water often. As soon as we can get supplies with over 60% alcohol, we will provide Hand-sanitisers too for the café.

Nigel will stop shaking hands at the door meantime.

If we are told to stop meeting, use the church website to stay in touch. Hear past sermons, and even listen live on Sundays at 10.30am

Sleep in the park and eradicate homelessness!

October 26, 2017

Saturday 9th December 2017, Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens. Social Bite, a proactive charity working around Scotland with and for homeless people, is organising the world’s largest ever sleep-out and are hoping to attract 9,000 people (over the age of 16). The charity hopes that by raising funds and working together, the people of Scotland will create such an impetus that homelessness will be eradicated over a five-year period. The aim is not only to find provision for housing, but also to provide rehabilitation, job opportunities and support that will help people get back on their feet and find their place within society. The hope is that the many charities who work in these areas might also link up to provide ongoing support and care. Social Bite has gathered together a range of amazing people to the sleep out – John Cleese, Deacon Blue, Rob Brydon, Sir Bob Geldof, Liam Gallagher and Amy Macdonald who will be present on the night. The challenge is for each individual to raise a minimum of £100 towards the cause. 2,000 people have already signed up. There’s still some way to go to reach 9,000 people.
