Ministers March 21 Message

Dear Friends, While there are no certainties yet, with the roll out of the vaccine programme the possibility of a return to meeting up once again with friends and family seems a little closer. It will probably take a while, but thanks to modern medicines and scientific research progress we now have hope that the restrictions we are currently living with will come to an end. I was tempted to write that we will return to normal but I am sceptical that the old normal can or will be returned to. Looking......

Ministers February 2021 Message

Dear Friends, I recently came across this photo which was taken last year on Shrove Tuesday at Willamwood High School. It seems like another world right now! Shrove Tuesday marks the day before Lent and this was the last day I was able to go into the school before lockdown. Although the Chaplaincy Team have managed to put together some Zoom presentations for the pupils since then, the photo offers a poignant reminder of what cannot be this Lent. Nothing, whether it is school, work, social, religious, or political lives, has been......

Ministers December Message 2020

Dear Friends, When the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between me and all living beings on earth. That is the sign of the promise which I am making to all living beings.” Genesis 9:16-17 In last year’s December Good Neighbour, I wrote about a Rainbow Tree that was going to be created during Advent in our link building.  The tree was made from bare branches that had fallen from larger trees in the manse garden.  Everyone was invited to hang a rainbow coloured......

Ministers October Message

Dear Friends, At the beginning of the lockdown in March when we began Zoom services I thought they might be needed for a few weeks. Six months in, I now realise that the new life and worship we have discovered through our computer screens is going to be with us for some time to come. I think it is fair to say that for the foreseeable future church will continue to be very different to what it was in the past. At the time of writing, we are following Version 7 of......

Ministers September 2020 Message

Dear Friends, As you know the Kirk Session decided to reopen our church for worship again on 9th August and since that time it has been good to worship alongside some familiar faces in the sanctuary again. Worship is very different to what it used to be, as there is no singing of hymns and reciting the Lord’s Prayer aloud during the service. Despite this it is heart-warming to worship together and to have our organist, Peter, playing music for us whilst others are still joining us on the Zoom......
