Weekly Intimations

Intimations – 13th September 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.

Reopening the Church for worship
We are delighted to say that we shall be open for worship again on Sunday 20th September.  While we are looking forward to being together again in the church after such a long time, we have had to make several changes to our normal pattern of worship.  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).
Pastoral Cover – The minister is on holiday between the 2nd and 16th September.  Funeral cover is being provided by Rev George Mackay (0141-959-8697)
Weekly intimations – If you have any items for the weekly church intimations, please contact the church office before Friday.
Church Halls – In line with Scottish Government regulations the church halls are currently only open for JOSS, Jordanhill Out of School Service.
Church Hall lets –  At present we are unable to take or confirm any other 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 we hope to receive this advice soon.
Church Office – The Church Office is open Monday to Friday 9am-3pm, but we request that enquiries are made by phone call or email unless your visit is essential.  If no-one is available when you phone, please leave a message and your call will be returned.

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.
