We meet for worship at 11:00am on Sunday 1st November at Helensburgh URC. The service will be broadcast using the usual Zoom link (available from your church secretary or the minister). A recording will also be available here by midday on Monday.

The theme will be ‘All Saints’ Day’. The evening before, All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween), is associated in Scotland with guising (being disguised). Therefore please come, if you wish, disguised by wearing a different kind of mask or face covering on Sunday and let’s have a bit of fun. The Co-op sells a skeleton mask for £3 for the adventurous….Many Christian communities throughout the world mark this weekend with mask wearing festivals to remember those who have gone before us.
Guising definition and meaning Day of the Dead – Wikipedia

The following Sunday, 8th November, we shall also remember those who have gone before us and whose lives were tragically taken in war and conflict. We shall begin the service at 11:00am with a period of respectful silence.

We 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
