Our Weekly Prayer

REFLECTION:
The Gospel of St. Matthew 6:25-34: please put your own name or the name of loved ones in the spaces.

Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, my beloved ________ do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not your life, my beloved __________ more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you, my beloved_________ not much more valuable than they? Can you, by worrying, add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you, my beloved __________ worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, my beloved ________, that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, my beloved ___________, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.

People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you, my beloved ____________, know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
So seek first God’s kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given as well to you, my beloved ____________.
Therefore, my beloved _____________, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Amen.

Thank you very much to the family of the late Mrs Madge Forsyth who have donated £800 to the church from the proceeds of hr funeral service. Madge was a very special lady to us and will be greatly missed. She was a hard working elder and a true gem.

There is now no restriction on the number of people at a Sunday Service although the fact that we still have to self-distance and cannot use the balcony for another few months will continue to limit our numbers. Would you please be so kind as to book your seats for church services through Diane McCallum on 07828 456651.
However, there is still a restriction on numbers for weddings and funerals and the number allowed has been increased to ONE HUNDRED. That said, our maximum number - depending on bubbles - is 85. This number will be by invitation of the families concerned. FUNERAL TEAS are also permitted.

We are now allowed to sing inside and out! We are very fortunate to have Diane as our risk assessor. We are in safe hands with her.

TEAS after the church service are allowed and have the same rules as cafe’s and restaurants, namely eight people from three households. Again we are in good hands with Diane and Kerry. In this beautiful weather we will have our tea in the church garden.

THE KIRK SESSION, CONGREGATION BOARD and Presbytery can now meet in person; the GUILD can also meet as can other groups. Most will want to begin after the summer holidays which are only three weeks away. We will certainly continue the Fun and Friendship afternoons which are for the well being of mental health. Each group requires a Covid-19 safety officer. The Guild will receive instructions from the Guild Office. Each group will work with our Covid-19 Safety Officer, Diane. Meetings, of course, will be restricted by the two metre distancing rule.

HYMN BOOKS can now be used. Praise the Lord, indeed! 

VOLUNTEERS REQUIRED for the Fun Week. Details will be finalised at the KS. If you can help in any way, please put your name on the sheet today. It may be possible for us to meet outside to make final preparations. DATES: AUGUST 10th to 13th, starting at 10am prompt to eleven thirty. Other churches in Presbytery are also doing an afternoon session in order to accommodate their usual number of children. We will have a discussion to see what is possible. Thanking you in anticipation of your help.

THE COMMUNITY FOOD LARDER is open on MONDAYS and THURSDAYS from 10am to noon. PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF TIME FOR THE THURSDAY COMMUNITY LARDER: 10am to NOON! The Larder will be closed in July although we will still provide our regular families with their food.

Anyone who wishes to have meals will have to go on to a waiting list.

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.
