Loving the Lord who first loves us: Youth Service challenge
Jonathan and suzie

A report and reflection from John on this morning’s service. This morning the annual service focussing on the work with young people took place. It was a vibrant and challenging service, as we listened to young people speaking about their sense of encountering God, prayed for those leaving secondary school to go off to study, and heard Youth Minister Jonathan (seen above with his wife Suzie) speak about his plans for the year ahead. We heard from

Christ: the forever reconciler: Lectionary readings for Sunday

I think tomorrow's service is the annual focus on the church's youth ministry which is aways inspiring! But here's the lectionary reading for tomorrow. Again it contrasts the old way of approaching God through priests and sacrifices before Jesus came with the new way Jesus inauurated. Jesus makes it possible to know in our hearts that we are loved and forgiven, and empowers us to live in a worshipful way which expresses the love of God to those around

In God’s classroom: Eilidh’s kids’ talk on the fruits of the Spirit

Yesterday Eilidh MacPherson gave the last of her summer series of children’s talks. Over the last few weeks she and the children have been exploring the fruits of the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22-23), and yesterday’s talk was a summary of all the fruits. As a trainee teacher, Eilidh spoke in the context of going ‘back to school’ whether as pupils or as others who work in schools. In what ways will the fruits of the Spirit be visible in our lives

News from Shona about the Book Group We had a really lovely evening at Nicole's on Thursday night (20th August) with 11 of us there which was an excellent turn out. We discussed Kirsty Wark's The legacy of Elizabeth Pringle. It was agreed that it was an easy read with Elizabeth's story being interesting but Martha's story being a bit too neat and tidy. It got 3/5. A song for Issy Bradley got an impressive 5/5. Not everyone had read it but those who

Our place in the big Story: reflection from John on this morning’s service

(Personal reflection from John on Duncan's sermon on Hebrews 4:14- 5:10) This was an encouraging, and challenging sermon. The greatest challenge is perhaps not simply given verbal assent to the reality of the great story, but knowing in our hearts that we are truly part of that story.  Knowing that in our joy, we have a God to be thankful to. Knowing that in our sorrow we have hope. Knowing that we have access to a God of indescribable glory. Father,

Keep on Keeping on: a report of this morning’s service
Keep on

This morning Duncan preached in Hebrews 4:14-5:10.  The aspect of the book of Hebrews which had encouraged him most over the last week, was the theme of ‘keeping on keeping on’ over the years. He and Shona celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last weekend, and had an advance celebration of Ruaridh’s 21st birthday since Ruaridh will be leaving soon to study for a year in Vancouver. He was born shortly before Duncan’s first Christmas

Jesus has swept aside ever barrier between us and the Father: Bible reading for Sunday
Grace Sat

Bible reading for Sunday These verses tell us we can approach God and ‘receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.’ They also tell us how the early Christians who had converted from Judaism understood how Jesus made this possible. Generations of Jewish priests had made repeated animal sacrifices on behalf of themselves and the people. Jesus himself was not only the final priest, but the final sacrifice. By his death and resurrection

From Nessie to Moshi: Leesa Peters’ latest adventure

News from Leesa Peters….. "So it appears that once more I'm leaving Aus for another random place. Seriously, I'm going to have to stop this someday!  Why Tanzania?  Well, I really have no idea so moving on.....

God became one of us so that we can be at one with God Bible reading for tomorrow

Hebrews 2:10-18 10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. 12 He says, ‘I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I
