PRIESTHILL & NITSHILL
Week beginning: Sunday 10th May 2020
It is hard to believe another week has gone by and sadly there is still no news of when we will be able to join together again as the church family worshipping God.
We hear that the church grounds in Priesthill Road have been given a new lease of life thanks to volunteers who have been weeding, pruning and tidying up. We want to thank them so much for their hard work and blessing us this way.
You will have been aware that last Friday, 8th May, saw the commemoration of VE day and Douglas was able to participate with the Friends of Nitshill War Memorial by submitting a song, prayer and short talk, all filmed at the manse. There were contributions from adults and children we know, as well as the local MP and MSP and Councillor. It is still available to view on their Facebook Page thanks to the hard work of Alex and Trisha Glass. We will endeavour to find a way of sharing this in the future for those who are not able to access it at the moment.
Naomi and Kirsteen continue to work tirelessly with the children, youth and families of the Parish using online resources and arranging meetings, chats and quizzes via Zoom. We are so thankful for the internet at this time!
Douglas will be hosting a Zoom meeting tomorrow evening, Monday 11th May, when we would normally be having the Monthly Healing Service. If you would like to connect with us in this way, whether you have been to a Healing Service before or not, please contact Douglas and he will send you the link. This meeting will not be in the usual service format but will be a time to let us feel connected as we worship God through readings of His Word, a word of encouragement and prayer. All are most welcome!
Douglas has also being engaging with Presbytery Meetings via Zoom. There is a real concern regarding the financial position of the national and local church at this time as many people have not been able to bring their tithes and offerings in the normal way. We would ask you to prayerfully consider your giving at this time. There are various options, Bank Transfer, cheques etc. Please contact Douglas if this is something you are able to consider at this time.
