As you will be aware, following guidance from the Church of Scotland, Sunday worship has been cancelled until further notice. We have set up this web page with the intention of offering a place where those connected with the Church (and indeed the wider public) can continue to receive spiritual guidance, and information about Church and community activities during the Coronavirus outbreak.
Ian Stirling and Andy Muir have kindly been providing weekly reflections and an online Sunday service, for which we are extremely grateful. This week’s is shown on the sub-page for the relevant month. Previous weeks’ services and news can be found on the relevant dated pages on the website.
Offerings and Donations:
Please be aware that in the absence of services, anyone wishing to support Fisherton Church financially can send donation cheques payable to “Fisherton Church of Scotland” to the treasurer:
Mr M Duncan
33 Kennedy Drive
It is understood that this is a difficult time for some financially but any support will be gratefully appreciated.
Other useful links: www.churchofscotland.org.uk offers updates and guidance from the Church centrally. It also offers information on streamed and broadcast services on mainstream media.
During this challenging period, Life and Work is committed to helping keep our Christian community connected and so they have made the May 2020 issue available on their website. This can be accessed by visiting: https://www.lifeandwork.org/resources/free-download-may-2020.
On Facebook, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland provides a daily reflection; and the Church of Scotland site offers updates and information of general interest.
The Church of Scotland is also delighted to be part of the prayer initiative Thy Kingdom Come in 2020, while recognising that it needs to take a new approach because of COVID-19. In the light of this, the Thy Kingdom Come website has been updated and adapted for our new situation: https://www.thykingdomcome.global/.
There is also a Fisherton Church of Scotland Facebook page, and a Kirkoswald Church of Scotland Facebook page. Please feel free to visit these pages and to ask to join the group.
NEW LAYOUT – This week’s reflection and any news can be found on the Coronavirus website page for the current month.
CHURCH OF SCOTLAND UPDATES:
The Moderator will lead a service to mark the birthday of the Christian Church with contributions from many different places. Like the disciples on that first Pentecost here is the invitation to step confidently into whatever the future holds. We would like to invite you to make this the service for your congregation on that Sunday so that as much of the Church of Scotland as possible will be gathered in fellowship and praise.
