Weekly Intimations

Intimations – 25th October 2020

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and weekly intimations page.  Sunday worship is now available in the Church, 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.

Reopening the Church for worship
The Church is now open for Sunday Services each week at 10.30am.  Guidelines about the service have now been emailed or posted to all members detailing how you can book a seat, the requirement to wear a mask at all times, and some of the limitations (no toilet facilities, no tea or coffee afterwards, no singing and no pew cushions). Bookings should be made through the Church Office by Thursday at 3pm.   The link to these guidelines can also be found here. 
 
Holy Communion –  Today we celebrate Holy Communion as part of our worship. There will be one service at 10.30am.  All are welcome to the service, or to share in Communion with us at home through the YouTube video or AnchorFM podcast.  You might want to prepare in advance some bread or wine, or juice for the start of the online service next week.
 

Holy Communion collection  – There will be a retiring collection for the Glasgow City Mission.  Cheques should be made payable to Jordanhill Parish Church and posted to the church office.  Or if you are a tax payer and wish to make more of your donation you could donate online through their website. www.glasgowcitymission.com

Church Office – The office is closed for annual leave and will reopen on Monday 2nd November.  To book your seat for Sunday services during this time, please leave a message on the answer machine.
 
Weekly intimations – If you have any items for the weekly intimations, please contact the church office by Friday.
 
Church Hall lets –  At present we are unable to  confirm  hall bookings until we receive sector specific guidance from the Scottish Government and the Church of Scotland.  The Scottish Government is currently working on this information and issuing updates.
 

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.

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.
