Lenten studies 2022

There are two opportunites to join with others in a series of studies for Lent this year. Rev Dr Roger Sturrock is once more taking us through Lent with a programme of studies, to be delivered via Zoom. Additionally our Joint Sunday Evening Reflections will follow a Lent course. Details of both below.

Lenten Studies – Rev Dr Roger Sturrock

These commence on Thursday March 3rd at 7.30 pm and consist of 5 studies.  It will be based on the writings of CS Lewis with the use of film clips from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Shadowlands. The studies are based on a book by Hilary Brand entitled “Not a Tame Lion”.  If anyone wishes to join please contact Roger by email : rogersturrock@mac.com

Joint Sunday Evening Reflections 

From 6th March onwards, our joint Sunday Evening reflections will follow the Lent Course “The Room Where it Happens” by Bishop Rose Hudson-Wilkin. This study is using songs from the musical “Hamilton”.

While the study works without having watched “Hamilton”, as we will watch the songs Bishop Hudson-Wilkin reflects on together, we would like to offer an opportunity to watch the whole musical together. You are hence kindly invited to join us for a screening at Wellington in the library on Friday 4thMarch at 2pm. The musical is about 2:35 hours long so the screening will finish by 5pm. 

Folk Music Concert in Aid of Ukraine @ Kelvinside Hillhead: Saturday 5th March, 8pm

We are hosting a folk music concert in the church this Saturday at 8pm in aid of the people of Ukraine.

The concert has been organised by Donald Macleod, former Chair of the Gaelic arts body, An Lochran. The lineup consists of ten different performers including a number of finalists (and two winners) from the Young Traditional Musician of the Year and a BBC Folk Musician of the Year, so it’s sure to be a great night.

Entry is by donation. Maximum capacity 250, on a first come first served basis.
(Masks must be worn)

Christian Aid: The Gathering – Tuesday 22nd February, 11am-12pm

Christian Aid Scotland’s flagship supporter event takes place on Tuesday 22 February (10am-12pm). For the second year in a row ‘The Gathering’ will be an online event open to supporters across the length and breadth of Scotland

Guest speakers this year include two members of Christian Aid’s South Sudan team: Yitna Tekaligne and Mbaraka Fazal.

South Sudan is a country hit hard by climate change, conflict and Covid-19. Extreme flooding has resulted in crops and livestock being destroyed. Seven million people do not have enough to eat. 

The Gathering will look ahead to Christian Aid Week 2022 (15-21 May) which focuses on our partners’ work in Zimbabwe. You’ll hear plenty of inspiring fundraising ideas and have a chance to ask questions. We’ll also bring you an update on the work we’re doing in Afghanistan.

To register to take part in The Gathering please email: edinburgh@christian-aid.org
