Almighty and Great God,

Accept our gratitude for your boundless mercy towards us. Hear the supplication of our afflicted hearts for the land and people of Ukraine, as they confront foreign aggression and invasion. Open the eyes of those who have been overtaken by a spirit of deception and violence, that they be horrified by their works. Grant victory over the powers of evil that have arisen and bless Ukraine with your gifts of liberty, peace, tranquility, and good fortune.

We implore you, O Merciful God, look with grace upon those who courageously defend their land. Remember the mothers and fathers, the innocent children, widows and orphans, the disabled and helpless, those seeking shelter and refuge, who reach out to you and to their fellow human beings looking for mercy and compassion. Bless the hearts of those who have already shown great generosity and solidarity, and those who prepare to receive their Ukrainian brothers and sisters in Ukraine's greatest time of need. Bring us together as your children, your creation, and instil in us your strength, wisdom and understanding. May you be praised and glorified, now and forever, and to the ages of ages.

Amen

Presbystery Mission Plan

Stuart MacGill has prepared a report from the October Presbytery meetings. This has been written, in the form of an Article, to record the two meetings held during October '22 to consider the new Presbytery Mission Plan as represented by the proposals submitted by the various clusters into which our congregations had divided. The Report summarises how we reached this stage, what happened at the meetings and speculates a little on the way forward.

Prayer for Sunday

“Even if my father and mother abandoned me, the Lord would take me in.”

Psalm 27:10

Lord, we pray for all who feel abandoned or isolated at this time.  We think of children who have lost their parents and adults who have lost those closest to them.  Would you comfort the bereaved and set the lonely in the midst of your family.  Help us to welcome those who feel disconnected, and encourage all who help the most vulnerable at this time. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

 

If you feel that you or a loved one would benefit from prayer support feel free to complete the form on our Prayer Request page

We are delighted that we are again allowed to open the church for worship. Numbers are no longer restricted and there is no requirement to book in advance. We will, however, still require your contact details for Test and Protect and that you wear a face mask.

Whatsmore, we can, once again, offer tea/coffee after the service at the Carswell Centre...a great chance to catch up with one another. We hope to see you there sometime soon.

We have installed new Audio Visual equipment to allow the Live Streaming of our church services. You can see our current and previous livestreams and videos on our YouTube channel. Unfortunately, the livestream is susceptible to outages, due to signal strength through the thick walls of the church. On the rare occasions where the service is lost on a Sunday morning, please wait whilst we try and re-connect. If all else fails please try again in the evening, by which time we will have uploaded a copy of the service.

For those of you who use Facebook please visit the church page regularly for additional information.
