Due to coronavirus, congregations across the Presbyterian Church have been informed by the Moderator and Clerk of Assembly that all church activities will cease with immediate effect. All Sunday gatherings for worship will also cease until further notice.


In his letter the Clerk of Assembly states: -


‘At this stage, it is not possible to ascertain a realistic end date for the above restrictions, hence the phrase ‘until further notice’. However, be assured that this formal advice will be withdrawn as soon as government guidance permits’


Consequently, we regret that there will be no services taking place at 2nd Saintfield from this Sunday.


These are unprecedented times and as a Church we are concerned about those among our membership and their families who, by reason of age, medical condition or indeed other family members will be self-isolating. 


To ensure that we know about your circumstances and can plan to provide what pastoral care and practical help we can during your periods of isolation, please contact your elder.


If you are unsure who your elder is, contact any one from the following list.

Colin Black

Clearly we will be limited in what we can do, but we have a growing list of volunteers who your elder may contact to assist you with, for example....


Prayer support. 

A friendly phone call.

A point of contact. 

Posting mail.

Urgent supplies or picking up shopping. (To be left at your door.)


Remember, we need to take every precaution to ensure that we are spreading only the love of God and His kindness. We must avoid physical contact (2m distance), wash our hands regularly and where appropriate items will be left on your doorstep.


Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging…….. “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.


Every blessing to you all.




Jesus replied,

“Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
