Welcome to our website! 

Our church meets every Sunday at 11.00 for worship.  Services are relaxed, and follow a traditional Presbyterian format.  We are an inclusive church, believing that the Bible teaches us not to discriminate on grounds of race, class, ability, or gender identity.  We are part of the Church of Scotland.  The "Kirk", as it is often referred to, is a broad church, comprising people from all theological backgrounds, and we find our unity in Jesus Christ and not in narrow confessional definitions. We rejoice in the diversity that enriches our fellowship.  We recognise that our faith comes alive when we are able to offer practical support to our community, in acts of service and outreach.

We are working for our first Eco-Congregation award. 

Keep an eye on our new Eco-Congregation page for updates!

 

A Prayer for Today

Loving God,

You have drawn near to us in your Son Jesus Christ, who shared our humanity and our suffering.  In His name we pray for those who feel vulnerable in the face of the global Coronavirus epidemic, and fear the danger as the virus spreads.  We pray that we may find strength and courage in Him who conquered even death for our sakes.

We pray for the National Health Service, and for all who work to help and support us; for workers whose job and livelihood is affected by the crisis; for our governments as they guide us with the help of experts on how to respond; and for those who are seriously ill at this time.

We pray that you would guide us to how we can respond personally to the challenges of these days.  Make us more confident in our faith, and so more hopeful, more at peace, and more considerate towards others who are in need.

Help us to remember our responsibilities, especially to the most vulnerable in our community.  Let us remember that the Church is not just a place to gather but a serving community looking outwards to minister your love.

Strengthen us by your Holy Spirit, so that we may carry on as best we can, looking to cheer and support others, bringing encouragement and practical help, remembering loved ones, friends and neighbours in our prayers.

Trusting ever in our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ, we offer this prayer in His name.               Amen.
