SUNDAY WORSHIP service
18th APril 2021
Today our Sunday Worship Service is led by Douglas Nicol,
our parish minister.
The theme:"Passing the Baton"
Today, as part of the service, there will be a Service of Confirmation in which Kirsteen Marshall, our parish assistant, through profession of faith, will be admitted as a communicant member of the Church of Scotland.
Week beginning: Sunday 18th April 2021
We have very much enjoyed seeing more members joining us for worship on Sunday mornings in the sanctuary at Priesthill Road and pray that, as the vaccination programme continues, the numbers of people affected by coronavirus will diminish and confidence in meeting together will grow.
We acknowledged at the monthly healing service on zoom that we miss the simple pleasure of sharing tea and coffee and chat at the end of the service but we continue to patiently wait for the day when these restrictions are lifted.
Today at the morning service, Kirsteen will make a profession of faith and be admitted into full membership of the Church of Scotland.
Once Douglas retires, it should be noted that only members of the Church will be allowed to sit on the Nominating Committee or vote if a new minister is called. We have members of the congregation who have been attending worship with us for a long time but not made this commitment. If this is something you are interested in, have been contemplating, or simply want to know more about, please speak with Douglas.
Many of us would confess to having watched an awful lot of television in the past year and, if we were being really honest, some of it has been awful! Although the days are longer and we are perhaps spending more time outside and, as restrictions allow, meeting up with friends and family, there is one programme we would really recommend you switching on one evening.
The Chosen is based on the true stories of the gospels of Jesus Christ. Some locations and timelines have been combined or condensed. Backstories and some characters or dialogue have been added. However, all biblical and historical context and any artistic imagination are designed to support the truth and intention of the Scriptures. Viewers are encouraged to read the gospels to ensure you have a firm knowledge of what is Biblical truth and what is imagined by the scriptwriters.
This is the link for the Chosen website where you can view each episode.
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)
