Informal, reflective service based on Celtic liturgy, followed by tea/coffee.
Thursdays 9.30---10 a.m. ish!
Where is it? Held in the Sanctuary at QPC, this is a short service of app
roximately 30 mins.
What is it? The service follows a pattern of readings and prayers according to the Celtic tradition and reflects the 4 Seasons and the changing Church calendar of Advent, Christmas, Lent. Easter and Pentecost.
Who does it? There is a rota of Bible Readings and Psalms and a different member of the group leads each week. They volunteer ( absolutely NO coercion!) well in advance and prepare a 10 minute reflection on the Bible passage.
And then? Afterwards we enjoy coffee/tea and biscuits---sometimes even cake!---at Hillstop. Spiritual food first, then food for the body next!!
THURSDAY is a very special day of the week for those of us who attend and we would love you to come and join us. You will be made so welcome. Contact the Church Office for more details.

Children and families all join together for the first part of our all-age worship at 10am. Parents/carers can then take under 3s to the coffee lounge where our creche includes some short stories from the bible, whilst children aged 3 and over are meeting in the Queen Margaret Hall for an interactive time of learning through stories, crafts, activities and more. Everyone is then invited to come back into church for the end of the service, where we share a little of what we've been learning. Coffee, juice and biscuits are available after the service.

Christian Aid is an organisation sponsored by churches and groups worldwide which campaigns to end poverty and inequality and to bring justice, dignity and freedom to all.
Rise Up Against Climate Change
Many of you may remember the Christian Aid campaign in 2017 that members of Queensferry Parish Church took part in called the Big Shift. A petition requesting that the RBS Bank stop funding coal powered plants world-wide and instead invest in clean energy and a letter to the CEO of the bank in St Andrew’s Square was handed in. Other Christian Aid campaigners handed similar documents in to Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds.
The good news is that the campaign was successful as 3 of the banks changed their investment plants radically.
However, HSBC is still investing in coal fired power stations in Bangladesh, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Therefore, once again on behalf of Christian Aid, Janet Thomas and Lesley MacKenzie intend visiting the HSBC bank in Princes Street to present a letter and names we have collected to challenge the bank to make the ‘Big Shift’ to funding clean energy. We will be collecting names for our petition between the services at QPC. In addition, anyone who wishes to join us at the bank is most welcome.
