Evening Service

Tonight we’re meeting together in person. This will be our second evening service since our return to in person gatherings. As I’ve mentioned before, we’re hoping to be up and running with weekly evening services from 6th June.

Tonight we’re thinking about another big question: what does the Bible say about mental health. I’m delighted that Eddie Chestnutt is going to be with us to speak on this issue. Eddie, as I mentioned last week, has a wealth of experience in this area. We’ve covered this issue before in church but it will be good for us to think it through again together.

Let me encourage you to join us this evening – especially if you weren’t able to make our first evening service. The service will be live-streamed online if you’re unable to join us but it would be great to see you this tonight.

Post-Ordination Training

This incoming week I am off on post-ordination training. It’s a compulsory week of training for ministers who have been ordained for five years or less. I have to take part in an online conference on Tuesday and Wednesday. Because I’m on leave there will be no midweek meeting on Wednesday evening. The service next Sunday morning will be taken by Mr. Keith McIlroy who is the Associate for Mission and Discipleship in High Kirk Presbyterian.

Rev. Eddie Chestnutt is providing pastoral cover in my absence. If you require a minister or urgent pastoral assistance, please contact our Clerk of Session, John Robinson, in the first instance and he’ll put you in touch with Eddie.

CD and DVD Distribution

Last Sunday’s services are now available for members of Session to collect and distribute.

Congregational Committee

There will be a meeting of the Congregational Committee on Thursday 20th May at 8pm in the church hall. Social distancing measures will be in place and good attendance is encouraged.

Join us on FaceBook

If you are a facebook user, then we would invite to to join with us there. Over the coming weeks and months it is our intention to use facebook to provide useful information, highlight upcoming online events and share items of praise that can be used in conjunction with our online services.

We feel this is a great way for our Church to remain active in these uncertain times and to let the wider world have a little glimpse of our life in the Braid.
