From the Ashes We Shall Rise Again - Film from Beirut
Following on from our service of the 23rd August which was dedicated to the people of Lebanon, Rev. Pamela Strachan's fellow students at NEST (North East School of Theology) told her about this powerful film produced by Jhony Azeir. Please continue to include the people of Lebanon in your thoughts and prayers.
Christian Aid has an appeal running to raise money for the Lebanon crisis. Click here to visit their appeal site
Our service for Lebanon of the 23rd can be viewed in the Weekly Services page.
On 25th October at 11:30 Stobo Kirk will be hosting a harvest thanksgiving service.
This will include the participation of Neil Cummings, Member Support Manager of the Horticultural Trades Association.who is the newly appointed Eco-Congregation coordinator for Peebles Old & Eddleston, and who has started a "health and healing plants" project in those congregations.
Over the last few weeks we have been taking small steps back into worship in church. Each week Skirling and Stobo churches are holding short socially distanced service, often with music but sadly without singing sadly. The services in Skirling and Stobo churches are held at the usual time of 11.30am.
For now Broughton Church has decided not to reopen. Tweedsmuir Church is currently investigating how to reopen safely.
The need to rope off pews means that there will are very small congregations of regular worshippers and no coffee! This is all that the regulations allow us to do at present. As regulations change and as we become more confident in coming together we hope that we can extend our offering. However at present we need to know ahead of time who wishes to attend the service so that we can allocate the few spaces we have. More
Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief!
Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief
For many, there’s still something of a taboo about death, dying and bereavement in Scotland. We have to face it when someone close to us dies and we’re grateful for funeral directors and clergy who steer us through the process.
However, I’ve been struck by how many people confide that they wish they’d given these matters much more thought in advance and had considered some end-of-life preparation well ahead of a loved one’s death - or even had some of these important conversations with family members beforehand. More
Donate to the Church
While church buildings are closed, the work of our churches continues. Services continue online, pastoral care and support is still provided and buildings and facilities still need to be serviced and maintained.
The Church of Scotland has set up a web page which allows you to contribute specifically to the local funds required for this work. If you would like to help out please go to the Donate to the Church page, click on Donate to a Congregation, type in the name of the congregation and proceed from there.
