Church Offices and Workplaces

The Scottish Government has asked that wherever possible individuals continue to work from home. The Church of Scotland continues to support this request to help suppress the virus and keep people safe. Where a church office has one person employed on a very part-time basis the congregation may consider allowing them to return to the office. Where multiple people work in an office (for example, a Presbytery) or where the individual is employed for a significant portion of the working week, consideration should be given to allowing employees to work from home, and when accessing the office for tasks they cannot reasonably perform from home that care is taken to limit the number of people with whom the person will require to interact.
