This weeks intimations
In our prayers
It’s with sadness that we announce the death of our member Peter Baird. The funeral service will take place at the church building on Friday 10th December at 2:45pm and thereafter to Holmsford Bridge Crematorium. Our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends at this sad time.
Messy Church is a family time for arts and crafts, storytelling and singing, fun and sharing a meal together. Our first Messy Church will be on Friday 3rd December in the Church halls. Doors open at 3:15pm with a start at 3:45pm and we expect to be all washed up by 5.00pm. Kids, please remember to bring a grown-up.
Candlelit Parade on Wednesday 15th December, meeting at Bourtreehill Library at 6.30pm. Everyone is welcome. Kids remember you need to bring an adult. The parade will follow a short accessible route up to the Relief Church Halls. On arrival at the halls, we will sing and then have hot chocolate and treats. Crossing Together are seeking volunteers to make and serve the hot chocolate on the night. If you can assist at the event, contact Alison Muir on 07562634385 or see Alison Muir or Amanda Laird on a Sunday morning. Crossing Together would also appreciate any donations of mince pies or mini chocolate logs or small money donations to allow these items to be purchased for the event.

We are keeping up-to-date with the latest COVID guidance and have stewards available at the church buildings on a Sunday morning to provide support. You will be most welcome, but if you are experiencing a new continuous cough, fever, loss of taste or smell then join us online instead.
Livestream and online services
Our Sunday worship services are livestreamed and can be accessed via our YouTube and Facebook pages. Videos of services are also uploaded for later viewing. Please search for “Dreghorn and Springside Church” to find our pages and subscribe for quick links and updates.
Camera and audio recording
The livestream camera is focused on the chancel area only. The camera begins livestreaming as the service starts and finishes after we have sung the blessing. Please note that audio of the organ music is being recorded as the congregation gathers and leaves the building.
Restoration of the Clock
We’re on the lookout for items from the bottom drawer that have been forgotten, collectables, antiques, car parts (batteries etc.) all to fund the restoration of the clock. Please contact Freddie on 01294 217936 for more details and to make a donation.
