In light of the ongoing crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus, Presbytery:
1. Instructs all congregations to cease public worship with immediate effect until further notice and to ensure that the Government advice regarding avoiding non essential contact with others is adhered to;
2. Encourages congregations to continue pastoral care of their members using other means of communication such as phoning, Skyping, Facetime etc. and to seek ways of offering any practical support that that they can for vulnerable members of the community;
3. Encourages congregations to explore options regarding placing worship resources on their web site or Facebook page if they have one;
4. Encourages everyone to uphold in prayer all who are suffering as a consequence of the virus.
