Sunday 16th August
Joanne Hood is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting. Please use the same login details as before.

10.40 a.m. Topic : Sunday Worship

Monday 17th – Saturday 22nd August
Week of Prayer which being run by the Church of Scotland – Monday 17th to Saturday 22nd August.

At 8.00 a.m. each morning a pre-recorded reflection will go live on the Church of Scotland website and on Facebook. These will include contemplative music, Scripture readings, a brief ‘thought for the day’, a prayer and blessing. Additionally there will be a suggested prayer activity that you can choose to take up at some point during the day. Each of these activities has been designed for all ages but certainly with children and families in mind.

In the evenings, there will be a ‘live’ gathering on Zoom in which we hope many from across the country and perhaps further afield will participate. These will commence at 8.30 p.m. – giving time for those who need to settle young children and for those who may have earlier meetings to join. The prayers from each evening will also be watchable on catch-up through the Church’s digital platforms.

 The evening gatherings will include the following:

•     Prayers led by designated individuals, these including leaders from our ecumenical partners, Church of Scotland youth workers, ministers and staff members.

•     Breakout rooms, during which participants will have a short time to reflect on the Scripture passage that was shared during the morning reflection, to pray together, and to ‘compare notes’ from around the congregations and communities represented.

•     Reflective music and time to simply be still; there will be opportunity for individuals to bring prayer requests and causes for prayerful concern and thanksgiving.

We are not posting the Zoom details on Facebook or the Church of Scotland website for security purposes
