Our Weekly Prayer

Let us pray to our God, the God of Love.
Open our hearts and enter in, O Lord.
Vow to care for us in sickness and in health.
End hatred and division; cruelty and violence.
LOVE is an action of faith because You love us.
LOVE burns in the heart and its fire cannot be quenched.
LOVE held Jesus to the Cross - LOVE for us who did not deserve it.
LOVE gives in self-sacrifice because we love others as You love us.
LOVE is a gift to share with the world.
LOVE, FAITH and HOPE in You, O God, can move mountains.
LOVE for You can change the landscape of our hearts from a wilderness of weeds to a garden of beauty.
Thank you, Lord.
Amen.

Donate Online

Church of Scotland ministers are reaching out by phone or online to provide pastoral care and spiritual support to people who need reassurance, hope and comfort. Many are supporting our key workers and their families as they continue to deliver vital services. They are caring for bereaved families amid challenging restrictions.

In addition, many churches are providing critical community services such as running foodbanks and feeding the hungry and homeless. A donation from you can help support the Church's work in your area and ensure the Church is sufficiently equipped and resourced to face these challenging times.

Whether you are a church member who wants to continue to give your regular offering to your own congregation or a friend to the Church who is moved to contribute for the good of your community, we want to help you support the Church in whichever way you feel led.
