The link below will take you to a prayer on the Church of Scotland website that we are all invited to say together in our homes at 7.00 p.m. this evening.
There has been a call from various denominations to make today a national day of prayer and so we are all being invited to safely light a candle and place it in our windows at7.00 p.m. this evening, offering this prayer together.
If you wish to participate please don’t leave the candle burning when no one is in the room, and keep it away from any materials like curtains or blinds.
With love and best wishes
Due to the Coronavirus all Church Services have been suspended.
Thanks to all of you who managed to join us this morning for worship. If you had any problems please email me at this email address and I’ll see if I can help. I have set up a new email contact group to hopefully stop some of you receiving multiple copies of the same message. If you know of anyone who would like to be added to this group if you could ask them to email me with their email address I can add them in. Similarly if you would like removed from this group just let me know.
