Living for Jesus at the heart of Hilton

 Church Building re-open for services – but prior booking is essential

We are delighted to be able to re-open Hilton Church Building for our Sunday gatherings as from 29th November 2020  As per Government instructions we can only accommodate a maximum of 42 people in total in the building for each service.  We will continue to live stream the service on Facebook each Sunday morning so that those who cannot be present in person will still be able to watch it live at home.

IMPORTANT: Please read full details about the services back in the building here.

We really do want people to come but we also want people to be aware of the medical advice relating to any health risk involved in coming.  In this regard, the Church of Scotland has put together an Assessment ‘Tool’ which you can read/download here.

How do I book a seat?

Those who wish to attend must book their seat in advance.  To do this please contact Jane in the Church Office on 01463 233310 or email office@hiltonchurch.org.uk .  You can book during church office hours Monday to Friday 9.30 am to 11.30 am.  If we are oversubscribed, those who we are unable to offer a place for the immediate Sunday will be given first priority the following Sunday, unless they do not wish it.

 ADVENT PRAYERS

 Advent prayers: an update from Duncan

Message from Duncan (22nd November):

When you go on a pilgrimage of any sort, the end of a week is always a significant milestone. An opportunity to look back on all that has been experienced as well as wondering what lies ahead. We are now a week into our Advent Prayers which take place at 7pm every evening. We have been following Celtic Advent – 40 days of Devotion to Christmas together with the Evening Prayers from the Northumbrian Community. It’s been a rich and encouraging time of prayer and fellowship.

Next Sunday (29th November) which is the First Sunday in Advent, we shall be having a service in the church at 10am. The service will be live-streamed.

At 7pm during our evening prayers, we will be sharing in Communion using a liturgy from the Wee Worship Book which we will post on line nearer the time.

If you would like to share in any of these evening prayer gatherings, email office@hiltonchurch.org.uk for link details.

 

SUNDAY 29th November

WORSHIP @ HILTON PARISH CHURCH

Morning

This Sunday,  first Sunday in Advent, there was a service in the Church building for the first time since March at 10am. Numbers were limited because of the COVID restrictions.  Please see here for details about how to book a place at next Sunday’s service.

You can watch the Livestream here, or follow the link below.

The Bible readings for today were:

Isaiah 64:1-9Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19, Mark 13:24-37 and 1 Corinthians 1:3-9

Duncan spoke of the longing of Jewish people in the Old Testament for God to come down, to intervene on earth, and of the fact that the coming of Jesus was God’s answer to their prayers.  Similarly we cry out today for divine intervention in these apocalyptic times, and Advent reminds us that again God comes to us, bringing strength, courage and hope in Jesus. And we look into an uncertain future, and long for God to break in and heal the world, and again our Advent readings remind us that we will not be disappointed. Watch out attentively, the Lord is at hand!

Evening

There will be an on-line  Communion Service  at 7pm this Sunday evening. It goes without saying that you will need to provide your own elements of bread and wine.

Here is a link to the Communion service liturgy together with a link to the Evening Prayers.

TO ACCESS THE SERVICE, please email office@hiltonchurch.org.uk for link details (it will be the same link as the daily advent prayer gatherings.)

The on-line communion with also be streamed live on the Church Facebook page from just before 7pm.
