Getting back to normal

Welcome Back! : In Church. In Person. On Demand.  On your phone.  On your tablet. On your computer.

This  Sunday 17th October 2021, Rev Mike will leads us through our weekly family service at 10:30am (doors will be open from 10:15am).  We still require you to book in advance for track and trace purposes.  To book your place, please email us through our Contacts Page. For everyone’s safety, we are strictly following the Scottish Governments social distancing guidelines, and have hand sanitiser stations for your use.

This weeks sermon will be recorded live at Wilson Memorial Church and will be available to watch here later.  We don’t want to give everything away beforehand, so if you aren’t able to attend in person or just want to listen again, we will be adding the video sermon to this update after the service has taken place.

This weeks order of worship that you can use:

  • Light a candle – to remember that Christ is the light of the world, and overcomes every darkness.
  • Opening praise –  “All I once held dear” – Here is a You-tube video with words and music that you can sing along to;
  • Opening prayer – prayer of adoration and confession
  • Read this weeks scripture passages – Mark 10: 35-45
  • Sermon – “Getting back to normal: be careful what you wish for”
  • Praise – Read or sing “When it’s all been said and done” – here is a You-tube video with words and music that you can sing along to:
  • Prayer of the people
  • Closing praise – “Brother, Sister, let me serve you” – here is a You-tube video with words and music that you can sing along to:
  • Benediction 
  • Extinguish the candle

Private prayerSundays re-started– It’s great being back in Church for weekly services, but unfortunately, we do have to introduce some restrictions in order that we can manage the required social distancing rules, and keep everyone as safe as possible.  This means we have had to significantly reduce our seating capacity, and introduce a booking system to ensure we do not exceed the allowed number of worshipers in our church building.   To book, please contact our Session Clerk, George Smith, either directly or send a message through our website contacts page (Get in Touch).  Social distancing measures and hygiene precautions are in place.

Our Basics Bank, Food Bank, continues to operate as normal every Tuesday providing a critical service to individuals and families suffering hardship in our local community.
