BFCG held the regular September meeting on Tuesday by Zoom and received reports from the Treasurer, With Refugees Broughty Ferry, and Broughty Ferry Food Bank. It was agreed that a donation of £500 be given from BFCG funds to Christian Aid as the Coffee Morning in May could not take place. It was also agreed to invite speakers to the November meeting to help exploration of the feasibility of a “Community Fridge” in the Ferry – this is a way to recycle surplus fresh food and reduce food waste.
Reports from each congregation gave a general picture of gradual resumption of worship by most, following Risk Assessment procedures and, where appropriate, booking to try to control maximum numbers. It was noted that for some regular attenders, a return to worship together physically, albeit ‘different’ & without socialising, was a welcome step, whilst for others, understandably, the need to exercise personal caution remained. The resumption of previous activities and use of premises through outside bookings had not taken place.
