Proposed Alternative Sunday Worship
the General Church Meeting on 27 April 2016 it was decided to
vary our Sunday morning worship on the third Sunday of each
month starting in September.
A planning group
consisting of a steward and at least two others will put
together each service.
Some services will include different musical styles such as songs from Iona or Taizé style. Some may include little drama sketches or video clips. Some may be Bible study and these will be held in the hall seated around tables. Some services may include a quiet time of meditation or reflection.
These alternative worship services will continue until Christmas, when they will be reviewed.
