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.

Our more traditional morning service of worship.
30 May @ 9:30am
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.
The Power of Prayer
As Christians we believe in the power of prayer but we often find it hard to know what to say and when to say it. This month let’s think about one aspect of prayer:
Find a comfy seat, sit down and relax.
Try to clear your mind of all the worries and concerns you have.
Listen for the voice of God speaking to you.
I hear you ask- How do I stop myself falling asleep?
Sometimes it helps to focus on something, perhaps a lighted candle, or a flower.
You might want to open your bible and read a passage and listen for God speaking to you through that passage.
There is no right or wrong way, we each pray in a different way but God is still listening.
