COVID-19 restrictions affecting funerals

The Church of Scotland has issued guidance on how Scottish Government restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic affect how we can provide services. See here for the full guidance

As of January 2021 we are in Enhanced Level 4 restrictions. The maximum number who may attend a funeral service is 20. Please see the link above for other restrictions to funeral services.

Kelvinside Hillhead Parish Church is a large traditional church building with a quiet ambiance. The spacious, light and quiet sanctuary generates a deep feeling of peace in people who are suffering the loss of a loved one.

In the event of a death in the family, you should first contact an undertaker to make arrangements for the funeral. If you wish to use the Church, you should tell the undertaker – who will then contact the Minister. The detailed arrangements are then made between the undertaker and Minister.

You do not have to be a Church member to use the Church. We will organise an organist and ensure that the Church is ready for the undertaker, family and mourners.
