Palm Sunday Service

Here are some photos from Morag of yesterday's Palm Sunday Service which was led by Jonathan, and involved the children making crosses from palm. John comments: "I wish I'd been there - I was on the plane coming home from holiday - but I guess the theme was Jesus' solemn Holy Week journey as the wood from a living tree became a cross for execution, and a welcomed king became the crucified king."

When Christ moves in: a Holy Week Experiment in Radical Hospitality
Radical Hsospitality

Here Jonathan explains the thinking behind a Holy Week experiment, issues an invitation to us to join in and shares a powerful vision of making a home for Christ in Hilton: I’ve long been fascinated by the practices of the earliest Christians, the way that worked itself out in the radical monastic movements of the early middle ages (5th-10th century) through to the Catholic Worker ‘houses of hospitality’ in North America in the 50s and 60s.

Love, Loss, Hope

Love, Loss, Hope is the title of an exhibition our friends at the Kings Church are hosting from Wednesday to Saturday this week, using art, poetry and multimedia to convey the reality of the Easter story.

Trains and lovers
Book Group

Shona reports on the most recent meeting of the Book Group at  Lighthouse on Thursday, 3rd April: "We discussed "Trains and Lovers" by Alexander MacCall Smith. Most of the group found it a very easy read and enjoyed it. They liked the different stories of the passengers but felt it a bit unlikely that strangers on a train would be quite so open with each other. However, they still felt it was well written and would recommend it. This month we have

Mothering Sunday 2

Morag Macritchie was taking Sunday Club yesterday, and took these marvellous photos. She writes 'The children today were thinking about blind Barimaeus and his trust in Jesus - the fact that he knew his needs would be met there. And alongside that, we were thinking about people in our lives who love and care for us with 'mother' hearts. We made cards, and prepared little bouquets of daffodils and carnations for sharing. Think they had fun. I certainly

Christ’s love team

At today’s service, led by David Whillis, the praise band was enhanced – trombone, a couple of horns, oboe, flute, guitar, trumpet, fiddle and drums led the praise stirringly at the start and end of the service. One of the key themes was God’s love for us. At one point, David asked the kids to come to the front, and asked them, this Mothers’ Day morning, if they loved their mums. He then asked them why they loved their mothers – because

Mothering Sunday invitation
church family

A thought from John Dempster ‘It’s Mothers’ Day, or more properly ‘Mothering Sunday’ this week, the 4th Sunday in Lent. It seems that centuries ago in Europe ‘Mothering Sunday’ was a day when people returned to their ‘Mother church’ – servants would be given a day off to return to their families and worship together at the family church. Because time off was so rare it was also a rare day of family togetherness. Someone at Hilton
