Palm SUNDAY service
28th march 2021
Today we return to worshipping in the sanctuary
at Priesthill Road at 11.00am,
following 11 weeks of Sunday Service Lockdown
which began on 10th January.
Week beginning: Sunday 28th March 2021
We praise God today, Palm Sunday, that the sanctuary at Priesthill Road is once again open for public worship.
For those having to remain at home and unable to join us, the service will be recorded and made available at the beginning of the week.
PERMISSION TO CALL A MINISTER
More good news.......................
The Vacancy Procedure Committee of the Presbytery of Glasgow proposes that the vacant charge of St Christopher’s Priesthill & Nitshill should be granted leave to call a minister on an unrestricted basis in accordance with the Presbytery Plan.
The formal intimation to our congregation communicating this decision can be found below this newsletter.
HOLY WEEK SERVICES
This week we are linking together with the congregations of Thornliebank Parish, Carnwadric Parish and Darnley United Free Church to celebrate Holy Week. With limited numbers allowed for Church building gatherings, this year the services will be held via zoom.
Rev Douglas Nicol will lead worship on Wednesday, 31st March, Rev Mike Gargrave (Thornliebank) will lead on Maundy Thursday, 1st April and Rev Jim Gemmell (Carnwadric) will lead us on Good Friday, 2nd April 2021.
You are most welcome to attend some or all of these services, which will commence at 7pm. To avoid confusion, the link for each service will be sent out on the relevant day.
Please let Douglas Nicol know if you would like the links and, if you are unsure how Zoom works, please contact Katherine Nicol (firstname.lastname@example.org) beforehand and she will be delighted to help you learn how to log on.
As ever, do remember that if you have any concerns or are struggling in any way, the ministry team are always available to talk or pray over the phone with you. This is always in confidence. (contact details below)
