Virtual Service April 4

We are still getting to grips with the technology – but we hope that these videos will be of use to you. This is a different layout and method to last week. Some combination of the two approaches might turn out to be the best route. Any feedback is welcome.

The Order of Service is laid out below

The video below is the Sermon for Palm Sunday by Rev Blair Gillon

Order of Service

  1. Ideally, practice your Worship on Sunday at 10:00am – That may help us to feel in our kirk amongst our fellow worshippers and friends.
  1. Watch the video with your partner, family or friends. A prayerful unity. If you’re on your own, watch and pray sitting opposite an empty chair and imagine Jesus sits there, with you.
  2. The words of the hymns and Bible lessons are on screen, so you can follow them without a book, if you wish.
