Weekly Intimations

Intimations – 2nd August 2020

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and weekly intimations page.  Whilst the church does not have any services of worship within the building at the moment we hope you will join us virtually, either by reading our Sunday worship material, listening to the reflection on podcast or watching on the church YouTube channel.  If anyone wishes to have the worship material in print then please contact the minister.

Other Sunday Services
On Sunday 2nd August at 12pm midday, there will be a recorded service from Giffnock South Parish Church from BBC Scotland.  This can be found by following this link Programme Website (or Freeview Channel 9)
 
Link Magazine – the August edition of Link is now available for distribution.
 
Life and Work – the July and August Life and Work magazines are now available for collection.  If you would prefer it to be posted to you then please let the office know.
 
Church Garden – over the past months the gardening team have been hard at work and the garden is flourishing!  If you are walking past the church why not stop and have a look.  Thank you to the team!
 
Reopening the Church
We have decided not to open the Church for worship at the moment.   To do so would come with many limitations and caveats for us,   we would be limited to 47 people, limited on who can and cannot come to church, there would be no singing, no pew cushions.  Because of this and many other implications we have decided to not open just now.  Everyone’s health and safety is our priority, and we will review this decision in the coming weeks.  
 
Video  Readers – The minister is looking for readers for our Sunday YouTube videos.  If you would like to record one of the Sunday readings then please contact Bruce at the Manse (0141-959-1310) or by email.  
 
Church Office – The Church Office is now on Summer opening hours.  If no-one is there when you phone, please leave a message and your call will be returned.  For all  pastoral inquiries please contact the minister. (0141-959-1310  or bsinclair@churchofscotland.org.uk)
 

Sunday evening Prayer 7pm –  Churches across Scotland and the rest of the UK are being asked to pray at 7pm each Sunday evening during the ongoing pandemic.  A time to pray for the health care and NHS staff, and remember the families of those affected by illness and bereavement.    More can be found here:  https://churchofscotland.org.uk/news-and-events/news/2020/join-the-call-to-pray-at-7pm-this-sunday

Online Donations – if you would like to contribute financially to the work of Jordanhill Parish Church, then please follow this link  Jordanhill Parish Church Online Donations

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.  

Church Services

There are no services in the church until further notice.  This includes weddings and funerals. 

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.

Church Office and Halls

The church office and halls  are closed to visitors.    This follows strict Scottish Government and Church of Scotland guidelines.  The office is open occasionally, and the emails and answer machine are checked regularly by Jacqueline the Church Administrator.   The minister can be contacted by phone and by email at the manse.
