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.

Church of Scotland Guild
“Whose we are and Whom we serve”
The aim of the Guild is to invite and encourage women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and to enable them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.
Strategy 2018 - 2021: One journey, many roads
Theme 2018 - 2019 Seeking the way
With over 20,000 members, the Guild is one of the largest organisations in Scotland and has a rich history of service to others. Founded in 1887 the Church of Scotland Guild has focused on serving our church, our communities and our world. It has always been a forward-thinking organisation and since 1969, around £7 million has been raised for projects national and international. These projects are challenging, sometimes controversial, but always worthwhile. This year we have presentations from two of the current projects - the Boys' Brigade 'Faith in Young People' and 'Free to Live' a project to build a home for abandoned street children from the red-light district of the city of Pune, India.
