Weekly Intimations

Intimations – 28th November 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.

The church office will be closed next week and reopen on Tuesday 7th December.

The December Link magazine is ready for delivery today and bundles can be found on the vestibule window ledges.

Next Sunday we will have our first monthly Night Church.  The church will be open from 7.30pm to 9pm and all are welcome to drop in at any time, and stay for as long or as short a time as you like.  There is no formal service held over this time, it is a space for people to come, pray, think, or take time away from the rush of December and sit quietly in the church.

The Kirk Session meet online by Zoom on Wednesday 1st December at 7.15pm.  Papers and agenda are available.

After the service today there is tea and coffee available in the Memorial Hall.  Please wait at the Memorial Hall door to be seated, and sign the contact list.   Please remember to wear a mask at all times in the hall unless you are seated at a table, or unless you are exempt.  We need more volunteers to help with the after church tea and coffee, if you can help then please speak with Karen in the office.

We are looking for one or two more people to help read the scripture readings during the service.  If you would like to be part of the rota please contact Karen in the office.

There are no longer exact seating areas in the main part of the church sanctuary, the yellow seating signs have been removed and you can sit wherever you wish.

Please give your contact details on the way in, and wear a mask at all times, unless exempt.
Please take your order of service home with you.
Our collection continues to be given on the way in to church.
Thank you for being mindful  of peoples’ space as we adjust to regulations and come back to church.

Next Sunday – 5th December 2021      10.30am       Morning Service and Junior Church
                                                                                         7.30pm       Night Church

Sunday Service Bookings – the church office compiles a track and trace list for the Sunday service.  It is helpful if you can phone in and add your name to the list before the service.  This makes it easier and quicker when you come to church!   If you wish to have  tea or coffee after the service in the Memorial Hall then please also mention this at the time of booking.  If you leave a message or email your request we will get in touch if we are fully booked.  However there are usually spaces each week if you come along without booking.

 
Stamp Appeal –  We encourage you to continue collecting stamps for the 2020 appeal for the Women’s Development Centre in Kandy, Sri Lanka.  Please hold on to your stamps until arrangements can be made for collecting them.
 
Weekly intimations – If you have any items for the weekly intimations, please contact the 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.
 

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.
