A Video Service for viewing here will be posted on Sunday 24th January for 11:00am – or you can view it at any other time that suits you. The readings during the season of Epiphany reflect on the start of Jesus’ ministry. For this Sunday the focus continues on Jesus calling his disciples.

We have started this year to use prayers from our partner churches in the Council for World Mission.

We will meet again in the evening at 6:30pm, as we do every week, via Zoom. You can get the login details from the Minister or your Church Secretary. If you are connected in any way to one of our four congregations north of the Clyde – Helensburgh URC, Dumbarton URC, Essenside URC in Drumchapel & Morison Memorial URC in Clydebank – and are not already getting weekly emails about worship – then please give you email address to the Minister or your Church Secretary.

The Other Side of Christmas

This morning we read Matthew’s stories about the context of Jesus birth and are reminded of the challenges he faced – which are not unlike challenges many people face today. Truly, in Jesus, God is with us. Please watch our short online service and feel free to add a comment below.

If you are connected in any way to one of our four congregations north of the Clyde – Helensburgh URC, Dumbarton URC, Essenside URC in Drumchapel & Morison Memorial URC in Clydebank – then please give you email address to the Minister or your Church Secretary so you can receive regular emails about online worship at this time.

Christmas Eve 6:30pm

December 21st, 2020 · 1 Comment

We met for worship at 6:30pm on Christmas Eve, Thursday 24th December, at Helensburgh URC to celebrate Christmas.

Our Christmas Day service was cancelled to allow people who needed to travel to visit family to be able to do so on the one day when this was permitted. Because of this, the Christmas Eve service combined Christmas Eve & Christmas Day themes – after all, in Jesus’ culture the day began in the evening of the night before! Although we cannot sing carols ourselves I arranged a recording specially for our service of two favourite carols sung by our former neighbour and her partner who are both Opera singers.

Public worship is now suspended until further notice. I will be posting a video service every Sunday morning for 11:00am and we will continue to meet every Sunday evening with others from our group of four churches along the north of the Clyde at 6:30pm via Zoom using the regular link (available from your church secretary or the minister).

All are welcome
