Prayer and Personal Worship
Week of Prayer 17th-22nd August 2020
We hope you will find new strength and hope from this opportunity for "the Church to come together from all 'airts and pairts,' to still ourselves and to listen for what the Spirit might be saying to us in these days (Revelation 3:22)" - Rt Revd Dr W Martin Fair.
Martin Fair, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, called for a week of prayer for church and country from 17th-22nd August. Short videos of the pre-recorded reflections are below. At the end of each reflection there is a suggested 'family-friendly' activity and we will post these separately on our 'Families' page over the next few weeks.
Recorded versions of the evening gatherings are available by clicking on the day you wish to view.
