With the introit ‘Jesus I worship You’ on the lips of the choir, the congregation extended a warm welcome to David Galbraith who preached his first service as interim Moderator at the South this week.

David Sell was our guest organist and skillfully led us through some beautiful hymns both on organ and piano. 

With readings from 2 Corinthians 5 and from Mark 4, Father’s Day, Faith and Mustard seeds featured in today’s service. Children young and not so young remembered, without difficulty, that the 17th was Father’s Day. Honouring your father on one particular Sunday in the year, pales to nothing compared to being able to honour our Father in Heaven every Sunday of the year!

What brings people to church? The hymns? The fellowship? The food for thought? If you remember the parable of the mustard seed, it will be easy for you to understand that it can be synonymous with our faith growing from the tiniest thought into a deep belief. How does our faith transfer to those around us? Do we reach out to others? Do we make them feel welcome in church? At this point in the life of our church, it is crucial that we look at what we do and how we do it to ensure that it is something attractive, that others will be encouraged to become involved. Consider that a warm welcome has been extended to you!

There will be an extraordinary meeting of the South Session at 10am on Sunday 1st July prior to Communion.

Thursday 21st Fellowship coffee at St Bridget’s 10-11.30am

Sunday 24th Sunday school presentation service led by our recently demitted minister, Rosslyn Duncan.
