Covid-19 and Maxwest

Click here for online services

Maxwelltown West Church is now open for congregational worship on Sundays, though we are still subject to the current social distancing regulations, as well as a limit to the number of seats that can be used.

Singing is now permitted - although still wearing a mask. We encourage everyone to follow the hymns shown on the display screen! We’re hopeful that it won’t be too long before the last of these restrictions are finally removed and we can begin to enjoy full worship, as well as reintroduce some of our much-missed social activities, including teas and coffees etc after the service!

Our warmly received Sunday services are now also streamed live via this website or on YouTube for those who are unable to attend in person. These are transmitted at 11 am on Sundays, and there is also the facility to catch up afterwards.

MaxWest looks forward to welcoming you back!
