Weekly Intimations

Intimations – 25th July 2021

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and weekly intimations page.  Sunday worship is now available online and in print.  If you are housebound and would like the printed service, or a CD recording of the service then please contact the office.

Sunday worship
The Church is now open for Sunday services.    Due to the current restrictions  on numbers allowed in church services, all who wish to come to church must book in advance each week by phoning or emailing the church office by 2pm on the Friday.  If it has not been possible to book your place as there are no spaces left, you will be contacted.  Worship will also be available online through YouTube and Podcast for those who wish to worship from home at this time.
 

With the recent change in Covid restrictions we are now allowed to sing in church.  Masks must still be worn at all times.

We also wish to gently remind everyone about the current Covid physical distancing measures when outside the church.  If gathering outside we are encouraged not to do so in large crowds.

We recently learned of the soon to be ordination of Allan Wright.  This will take place on Saturday 21st August at 3pm, and Allan will be ordained as a pioneer minister to the veterinary community in the North East of England. If anyone would like to attend then please get in touch with him.  We wish him every blessing as he starts this ministry.

Church Office – the Office is closed to public access.  The emails and answer machine will be checked regularly, please continue to leave messages and send emails to book your Sunday place in worship. If your booking is unsuccessful we will get in touch by Friday afternoon.
 

The Church Office is now on summer hours and Karen can be contacted by phone and email on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Sadly today we intimate the death of Margaret Fleming.  The church service will be on Thursday 29th July at 2pm and 3.30pm at Clydebank Crematorium. Due to Covid restrictions the service is by invitation and there will be no spare seats.  Please remember Jock, Janie and Alastair in your prayers.

Prayer Group – As we have no Prayers for Healing service at the moment there is a small prayer group that receives a prayer list of world wide and local concerns to pray for.  If you would like to add anyone to the prayer list, or be part of the prayer group, then please let the minister know.

Do you have ideas of how the  congregation can continue to be in touch and have fun in the process at this time?  All ideas are welcome, please get in touch with the Communications Committee or Minister.

Website, Facebook and YouTube

www.jordanhillparishchurch.org.uk, the church facebook page and the Church YouTube channel will contain details of worship material and news about the church.  These are the most regular means by which anyone can keep informed about what is happening at the church over the coming weeks and months.

Pastoral Care

Each district Elder will be in touch with their district over the coming days and weeks as part of our pastoral care for each other.  Please also continue to be in contact with the Minister if you have any pastoral needs, most contact at this time will be by telephone, email or post.
