Living for Jesus at the heart of Hilton

Important Message

Duncan MacPherson, our minister and Iain Ross, Chair of the Congregational Board have written to the congregation. They tell us how church life has changed as a result of the COVID-19 Lockdown; they describe how we’ve used electronic media to continue meeting, worshipping, enjoying fellowship and fun together. They discuss the challenges facing us, and thank everyone for the generous response to the recent financial appeal.

And they remind us that alongside the frustration and anxiety many feel, and the anguish of loss, the pain which some are suffering, there are signs of creativity and life. They say:

It’s been wonderful to discover afresh as followers of Jesus, that even in our physical separation from one another, the work of the Holy Spirit has continued and enabled us to glimpse new possibilities.

WORSHIP @ HILTON PARISH CHURCH

It’s a changing of the guard within the Mac household! After 15 weeks of lock-down restrictions, Eilidh is joining the “MacBubble” while Rory is returning to work in Paris. So it’s one in and one out!


The lectionary passages for Sunday are Isaiah 55 v 10-12 & Matthew 13 v 1-9. it’s early days in terms of preparation but thoughts at the moment are focussed around JOY.


The photo below was taken before lock-down when we all had smart hair cuts and no social distancing!
