I have been accessing various resources online and one which I have particularly enjoyed is Daily Bread. Quite a few of their publications are free to access, so pop over and have a look. The above, ‘Hope in hard times’ is worth a read.

In these difficult times, when all gatherings of people connected with the Church will cease, including Sunday worship, we need to rethink how we stay in touch, and consider what the Church can offer. From Thursday next week the church will be open from 10am-12noon for private prayer and reflection; prayer and Bible study resources will be available.

You are asked to wash your hands upon entry and to maintain a safe distance from other people who may be there. If you need to talk to someone, one of the elders will be in attendance when the church is open.

We will also be posting links on the website and on our Facebook page to online resources such as sermons and worship.

Let’s start with a link to Rend Collective, a Northern Irish group, and a session of their socially distant worship, which they will be conducting weekly. Follow the link to YouTube https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xVIGO6_-2Lw

We have taken the decision, following advice from the Church of Scotland, to suspend all church services for the moment. The website and Facebook page will be updated in the next few days with some links to online resources or if anyone would like some printed booklets etc please email the Session Clerk team and we will get back to you.

The Café Committee have made the difficult decision, in light of all the concerns regarding covid-19 and the spread of infection, to close the Café until further notice. Please feel free to contact us if you would like help or assistance in these times.

Today we are celebrating with the congregations of our neighbouring parishes the induction of a new minister to the vacant charge, Rev Dr Robert Pickles BD MPhil PhD.

Changes to the central structures of the Church of Scotland were agreed at a Commission of Assembly last Thursday.  To keep congregations informed, Life and Work has released a FREE four page guide explaining these changes.
