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.

Morning Service 2019
Our more traditional morning service of worship.
In the late 1990s Rev John Carrie spent 3 months on sabbatical in Kenya and fell in love with the people and the place. Meantime Tom and Gwenneth Williamson had already made a connection with David Mbae in Chogoria, about 100 miles north of Nairobi, through their son Scott who elected to serve in the hospital there as part of his medical training to become a doctor.
Since then, the Queensferry Parish Church connection with Chogoria has continued to grow through:
- Visits by Queensferry Scouts in 2005 and 2008.
- Reflections and Connections following the Scout trips.
- Training sponsored for three teachers through the John Carrie Memorial Fund.
- Members of the congregation visiting the Chogoria congregations in 2011, the Chogoria Twelve.
More recently, our 1st September 2013 Communion services included a skype call with the Chogoria congregation when we were able to see and hear one another’s gathered congregations live. The QPC folks were able to see and hear from the teachers and many of the pupils whose training we’ve sponsored.
David Mbae, wearing a kilt(!), is pictured on the left with the Olympic Medal winning Kenyan athlete, Kipchoge Keino. David is headmaster of the Chogoria Complex Primary School and is our key contact with the Chogoria church, schools and hospital.
