Parish Church

Last Sunday the Rev. Murdo Campbell led the worship at the closing parade for the uniformed organisations. James Elliott and Adam Smith from the Boys’ Brigade read the lessons and Amber Smith and Niamh McLauchan from the Girls’ Brigade led the prayers of Thanksgiving and Intercession. Three members of the Boys’ Brigade, James Elliott, Jack Gardiner and Adam Smith were presented with their Queen’s Badge certificates following their completion of this award during the session. This Sunday is the Easter All Age Family Service at 11 a.m. and will be led by the minister. Before the service there will be an Easter Celebration Breakfast from 9-10.15 a.m. in the Rankine Hall. This will be an informal time of praise, reflection with bacon, sausage and egg rolls and tea and coffee. The Crèche, Sunday Schools, Triple S, Flaim and Wait for it will not meet but the crèche room will continue to be available if required. The monthly evening service will take place this Sunday at 6.30 p.m. and will be led by the Choir and Praise Group. There will be no congregational prayer time tonight (Thursday) as there is the Braes Churches joint Holy Week service at 7 p.m. in Laurieston Church. Tomorrow (Friday) Brightons will host the Good Friday Service at 7 p.m. All are warmly invited to attend either or both of these services. Door duty this Sunday will be by Alan Macfarlane, Alistair McDonald, James Falconer, Charles Lees, Richard Baird and Tom Nimmo.
