Welcome and Call to Worship

Call to Worship
(From Psalm 104)

May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
May the Lord rejoice in his works –
The Lord looks on the earth and it trembles,
The Lord touches the mountains and they smoke.
We will sing to the Lord as long as we live;
We will sing praise to our God while we have being.
We rejoice in the Lord.
Bless the Lord O our souls. Praise the Lord!

Hymn 489 – Come Down, O love divine

Sunday Services
Services continue at 11 am. You are very welcome. Please remember that restrictions are still in place; please arrive by 10:55 at the latest.
See our website ( for online worship.

Opening the Church
The church building is open again on Tuesday and Friday mornings between 10am and 12 noon to welcome anyone who would like a quiet space to be in. If you have an hour to spare on either morning (it doesn’t have to be regularly) and would be like to be involved, please do add your name to the volunteer rota on the wall in the church vestibule.

Online Worship
At present our pre-recorded online worship is sent out by email on Saturday night and then goes up on the Church website. From 30th May, we are going to try recording worship in the church building on Sunday morning and post it on the website later on that day. We are not live streaming and we are not going to film the congregation. The camera will only film those leading worship at the Communion Table and at the lectern who are happy to be filmed. Some pews will be in camera view behind the lectern and if you usually sit in one of these pews and would prefer not to be filmed, please let the duty elders know and they will show you where to sit. A big thank you to Michelle Doig who has volunteered to do the filming. Michelle would welcome assistance and if you would like to help, please let the church office know.
