Church Offices and Workplaces

Church offices should remain closed at the present time as they are not considered to be an essential service. Church employees such as secretaries and administrators should work from home. It is permissible for an employee to enter a church office in order to check on mail and undertake essential photocopying, but at no time should a church office be open to the public.

The Scottish Government have indicated that areas in Level 0 can begin a limited return to offices; however, working from home will remain the default. Further guidance will be offered on this topic in due course.

Further information can be found in the Scottish Government's guidance on returning to work.
