Easter 2020 in Balfron Church

Easter 2020 has been very strange for the Church, with the coronavirus lockdown stopping any worship in the church buildings.

But that hasn't stopped the congregation from celebrating. We have been delivering the message online and offline, with Facebook, Youtube and our traditional Easter cards delivered direct to houses in the village.

We also used an ancient form of  'social media' - the church bell rang out at 11am on Easter Sunday as a signal for us all to join together in prayer.

You can see how we celebrated Easter online with our video messages:

On Facebook, people have also been sending in photographs, messages, bible verses and prayer requests.

The Church of Scotland website has also had suggestions and links to many different ways to celebrate Easter together. Click here to go to their page.

Hopefully everyone felt part of the Church even if we had to stay apart physically.
