Dear friends,

 

We are so disappointed that this new lockdown means we can no longer worship together in the sanctuary at Priesthilll Road.  However, the ministry team will continue to work together to bring praise, Bible readings and teaching to you via the Website and our YouTube channel.  If you are having any difficulty accessing the service online, please get in touch.  We would encourage you to subscribe to the YouTube channel (St Christopher’s Priesthill and Nitshill Church) and that way you will be alerted when the service is available to view.

 

Today, Sunday, 10th January, we offer an Online Worship Service led by the Right Rev Dr Martin Fair, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, who very kindly has prepared this service for parish churches throughout Scotland for this Sunday.

 

 

PRAYER

 

This Sunday (10 January), as restrictions continue across Scotland, Christians across the country will join together in prayer at 7pm in response to the coronavirus pandemic. As with previous weeks during lockdown and the phased easing of restrictions, 14 Christian churches and organisations across the country, including the Church of Scotland, have co-signed the letter calling for prayer. This is a private time, no zoom meeting involved, and a copy of the prayer and accompanying video can be found on the Church of Scotland website for those wishing to participate. (link below)
