Notices - 26 June

MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER:

Today is Sanctuary Sunday, when we are exhorted to make space in our hearts and in our lives for refugees. And, for the first time, Blythswood has asked churches to focus on the organisation and those it serves in Christ's name, with a Day of Prayer on the Wednesday following (29 June). Both initiatives remind us of God's concern for people who are poor and vulnerable. While we respond in practical ways, we should bear in mind how spiritually needy we all are and so our theme for today focuses on our need for a Saviour.            Rory

Notices - 19 June

MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER:

Inspired by Trinity Sunday, this Sunday's theme focuses on the dynamic relationship which faith in God enables. This finds primary expression in our praise and then it flows out into our lives, as individuals and as a church. This Sunday being both Sanctuary Sunday and Blythswood Sunday is a further reminder of how faith in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit spurs us into concern for our sisters and brothers here in Scotland and around the world - we are family! In Broadford Church (and perhaps others?) we shall be taking up a special collection for Blythswood, so please come prepared...    Rory

Open to anyone in the parish or wider communityAnd here’s the link for more information about the Climate change festival: https://www.nhclimatehub.co.uk/highlandclimatefestival

PLEASE REMEMBER OUR TWIN CHURCH St PAULS IN AMMAN: 

George would particularly like prayers for…

- The new church vestry as we are planning to develop and improve our ministry.

- for the different ministries we have at St Paul's, among children, youth, women, Bible study group, music and English classes, cooking classes and pastoral care ministry.

- for our diocesean annual meetings (after two years of not being able to meet ). That the Holy Spirit lead our bishop, clergy and lay people to discuss and take right decisions for God's glory.

BLYTHSWOOD SUNDAY: 26th June.

There will be a collection for Blythswood on Sunday.

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR TREASURER:

Firstly, a heartfelt thank you for your continued and essential financial support of our Parish.  Just like individuals, households and businesses around us the church is anticipating a significant rise in costs over the months to come so we will rely even more heavily on your regular and Spirit led giving to keep us on the right course through these troubled waters.  Over the last couple of years the offering plate has taken a back seat due to the pressures of Covid-19 but we have started to reinstate its position as one of the primary aspects of worship at recent services.

If you are a Gift-Aider your Tax Certificate for 2021/2022 is waiting to be picked up in your church vestibule. If you use WFO envelopes your new batch is waiting to be picked up in your church vestibule.

If you just put cash in the Open Plate and feel led to use WFO envelopes, set up a Standing Order or even become a Gift Aider please get in touch by email (mfmacrae@aol.com) or by phone (01599 534695).  I will be more than delighted to lead you through the simple steps required.  I have attached a Gift Aid Declaration in anticipation.

Cashiers please note that, due to the ongoing shortage of paper, all the new WFO envelopes are blue.  The Gift Aid ones can be identified by the orange ink.  Fingers crossed for return to normal next year!

Yours for all the best reasons, Margaret F Macrae

Notices - 29 May

MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER:

How are we to make sense of the recent decision of our Church's General Assembly to permit ministers to apply for a license to conduct same sex marriages? The problem arises both from society's departure from the traditional, Christian understanding of marriage as being the lifelong commitment of a man and a woman, in reflection of Christ's devotion to his Church and from recent medical awareness that a small yet significant proportion of the population is born gay/ intersex/ transgender. In affirming that all humans bear God's image and deserve respect and compassion, we must work towards appropriate ways of supporting everyone in living faithfully before God and alongside one another, remembering that Jesus made unity the hallmark of authentic and effective witness.      Rory

MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER:

Change happens at an accelerating pace. Yet, perhaps for the first time in history, we face the prospect of throwing the philosophy of growth into reverse. Wars and rumours of wars add to the maelstrom. With cautious optimism, Christians mutter our well-worn mantra about God being in control - but do we really believe it? It's time to dig deep into that peace which Jesus breathes into his disciples and how he modelled it in his composure through Holy Week and beyond...                             Rory
