St John’s Closure

Click image to hear a message from Joanne.

As I’m sure many of you are now aware, all our congregations have had to suspend activities including all public worship until further notice.  This means that all the notices on the website or elsewhere about events, groups, meetings and worship (including Holy Week and Easter services) at St John’s are now out of date as all of these are cancelled.

In this very strange and troubling time I would ask all of us to remember our call to be brothers and sisters in Christ who are compelled to consider how to ‘love our neighbour as our ourselves’.  Let us draw strength from the knowledge that we hold one another, and the rest of our world, in prayer so that we might still be able to make a difference in the lives of others because of our faith, hope and love in Jesus Christ.

We intend that there will continue to be an audio recording on our website each week to allow people to connect over a shared sermon or reflection from St John’s, and probably more than usually appears there. But there are also plenty of other choices of worship for people to join whilst we cannot meet together in the church building.

Please find information about, and links to, these options on the Church of Scotland website page you will find by clicking the link below.

With love and best wishes,

Message from Liz Muir

Pastoral Care Team Convenor

 

St John’s Family has always been strong giving support, comfort and true love to all.

However we are all aware of anxious and challenging times that lie ahead.

I want to reassure everyone that Pastoral Care support  will always be there for all at St John’s. The format may be slightly different but  the support is definitely so much in place. If help, no matter how small, is required please do not hesitate in contacting Joanne, the office or myself.

I ask you all to please keep in touch with each other to make sure all is well.

All take great care.

God bless

Liz Muir
