Remembrance Day and Poppy Scotland

On Tuesday 10 November we shall be open for private prayer as usual between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.

However for a brief time in the middle of that hour, there will be an appropriate readings and prayers for the Remembrance Day season and a wreath will be laid.

Open for quiet time and contemplation

Once again, we are open for an hour tomorrow afternoon, Saturday 16 October between 2pm and 3pm, as a space to sit quietly, for contemplation and for prayer.

The organ will be playing at times, and there will be a brief spoken prayer, but otherwise this is a time to reflect and enjoy the peace and silence.

Please enter by the west doors in Saltoun Street and please wear a face covering.

The church is open twice a week:

  • Tuesdays from 12:30 – 13:30 
  • Saturdays from 14:00 – 15:00 

A sunny Saturday

The sun shone on our first Saturday open hour for private prayer.

It was lovely to be back spending some time in this space, hearing the organ play, sharing peace, contemplation and prayer, and seeing (with all the appropriate precautions!) each other after so long.

Reminder: the church is now open for private prayer on:

  • Tuesdays for one hour between 12.30pm and 1.30pm
  • Saturdays for one hour between 2pm and 3pm

Together while we’re apart

Here are some of the ways we are keeping in touch as a community while we continue to be apart.

Sundays:

Karen Hendry, our Interim Moderator leads a short reflection online (via Youtube) for the congregations of both Yoker and KH on a Sunday morning. To join the mailing list and get a link for these, contact Karen at khendry@churchofscotland.org.uk

At 11am we are invited to join together in prayer, thinking of each other. Additionally, Wellington Church continue to provide a pre-recorded service every Sunday which is made available on their website at llam.

Helen makes sure Young Church keeps going with a weekly email full of activities. If your child would like to receive this, contact her at children.kelvinsidehillhead@gmail.com

At 7pm all Christians in Scotland (and beyond!) join in prayer.

Other ways we’re getting together:

Roger Sturrock leads a weekly Bible Study on a Tuesday at 7.30pm using Zoom – contact Roger at rsturrock@churchofscotland.org.uk for more information about this and to join in.

The Wednesday lunches may not be possible at the moment, but Karen hosts a Zoom Wednesday Tea Break at 2pm (often with a quiz!) – all are welcome. Contact Karen Hendry as above to take part in this.

Finally, Guide and Brownie groups are also enjoying virtual meetings. Please contact your child’s own unit leader for more information.

Christian Aid week 10th – 16th May

Christian Aid have risen to the occasion with a number of methods and activities to help us continue to support their work this lockdown Christian Aid week.

We may not be able to collect envelopes or make our donation as we would usually do, but you can share a Christian Aid e-envelope here.

We may not be together in person at church at the moment, but we can join together in Christian Aid online events such as 11am live daily reflections every day this week, and daily 7.30pm quizzes for the whole family on Facebook live.

Your gifts will save lives.
