Church Services

Church Services are held every Sunday morning. Because there our five churches in our linked parish, four of which are used on a regular basis, services have to be rotated between churches in Ruberslaw Parish, while Hobkirk and Southdean have a service in Hobkirk Church every week. In addition, service times at 9-30am and 11-00 am are changed twice a year to ensure that each of the linked parishes gets ‘early’ and ‘late’ services, for the convenience of members. Coffee is served after ‘early’ services.

At Easter and Christmas time, there are additional services and times of some regular services change. Watch the ‘Service Time’ page on this web site, or church notice boards and local press for more details.

Covid-19 Update 17 December 2021

At present we are continuing to hold worship in our churches with 1m social distancing in place. Masks are legally required to be worn throughout worship. We would also encourage you to take a lateral flow test before attending any event or worship in church, and not to attend if you have any cold like symptoms.

If you unable to attend church, or do not feel comfortable doing so, worship is being provided in the form of printed Weekly Bulletins to enable personal devotions at home. These can be found on the News & Events page,  Recordings of our Worship  services can be found on our YouTube channel ‘Hobkirk and Southdean with Ruberslaw’   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC00ztH8Y86E0tiyeFEp2T8w
