Sunday church services are taking place in Scotland for the first time since lockdown began in March.
Places of worship were given the green light to reopen for communal prayer and services by the Scottish government as of Wednesday but restrictions apply.
Only 50 people are allowed in buildings at one time, mask wearing is encouraged and singing and chanting is limited.
People will also have to provide their contact details and there are separate rules for marriage ceremonies and funerals.
The Church of Scotland admitted it would be "some time" before all its buildings were open as it prepares buildings to be safe.
The President of the Bishops' Conference of Scotland, Bishop Hugh Gilbert welcomed the openings as a happy event:"To have been unable to attend Mass for many months has been a source of real sadness for Scotland's Catholics and I am sure there will be great joy at the prospect of returning."
The Scottish Episcopal Church Primus, the Right Reverend Mark Strange, encouraged congregations to embrace the changes:"Some things will be different but ultimately we're there for the same reason we always have been - to give worship and praise to God."
