Advice on Coronavirus
24th March 2020
Bennochy Church

Important Advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For the safety of all society and to protect NHS services:

  • The Government requires that everyone stays at home unless shopping for food or medicines, taking exercise (once per day) or to provide care, or to help a vulnerable person

  • Avoid unnecessary journeys

  • People should not meet friends or family members who do not live with them

  • Try to reduce handling of food when shopping and always keep 2 metres (6 feet) apart from non-family members

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • If you work, then only travel to work if you cannot undertake your job from home

  • Public gatherings of more than two people are banned

Message from Robin

All schools and nurseries are now closed. Please note that grandparents are being strongly advised not to step in and look after children. I realise that this will be hugely disruptive for all families.

Finally, in self isolation or not, it is good to get out for a walk and into the fresh air - as long as you keep your distance! We do indeed live in unprecedented times.

We have added some special pages for you to read including a letter from Robin, prayers and other useful information.

Read Robins message at From the Manse. Here you will also find other pages we have added while Church worship is suspended including a special Thought for the Day updated at regular intervals during the week.

All services and activities are suspended until further notice

The status of all activities and events can be found on the Services Status page, including important information about funerals.


Dementia Friendly Hippo
15th March 2020
Dementia Friendly Hippo

Fife Council has appointed a Project Manager to promote Fife as being Dementia Friendly. The project manager is visiting schools and delivering a specialist course for children on becoming a dementia friend. The gift of a small, hand sized, purple hippo is to be given to each child who undertakes the course.

Following the recent adult Dementia Friends Course at Bennochy, we were invited to help with some of the knitting of the hippos to be gifted. The aim is to have 1000 hippos to hand out to the children of Fife. If you can help, a knitting pattern is available in the church office or at the Olive Branch Café.

This is an ongoing project. Finished hippos can be handed in at any time to Louisa Turner, Development Worker, Bennochy Church, or handed in to the church office (marked for Louisa) or the Olive Branch Café. Louisa will deliver the hippos to Ruth McCabe, Project Manager, Dementia Friendly Fife, for distribution amongst the school children of Fife. Thank you.

The purpose of the Coffee Morning is to invite members to view items which will be displayed in the hall which we intend to remove from the Church as part of a Spring Clean to allow more space. There will be no charge if any member wishes to uplift these items.

We are also looking for some help on the day for preparing, serving and cleaning up. If you are able to assist please advise Isobel Neilson or George Drummond.
