This weeks intimations

Intimations: Sunday 22nd November 2020

The Lord’s Supper

This morning we share the Lord’s Supper together.  All who love Jesus as Lord and who want to love him more are invited to share in the meal.  Before the service prepare some bread, or maybe a cracker, and some wine or other suitable soft drink.  We may not gather in the same building to share this meal, but at this time, when we feel the need to be united so much, we are invited to the Lord’s Table, wherever we are, knowing that God is among us, in him we are one, he sustains his community and he nourishes us in faith for the journey ahead. 

 

Advent Bible Study

During the period of Advent, we shall have a weekly Bible study by Zoom.  This will take place on Thursday evenings at 7pm, starting on Thursday 26th November.  If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please email the minister at jmilliken@churchofscotland.org.uk.
