Week of Prayer

Please note that the Church of Scotland are running a week of Prayer from Monday 17th to Saturday 22nd August, we are keen to involve anyone who would like to get involve, further details can be found on the Church of Scotland website here.

In the evenings there will be a ‘live’ gathering on Zoom in which the Church of Scotland hope many from across the country and perhaps further afield will participate. These will commence at 8.30pm - giving time for those who need to settle young children and for those who may have earlier meetings to join. The prayers from each evening will also be watchable on catch-up through the Church’s digital platforms.

The evening gatherings will include the following:

•    Prayers led by designated individuals, these including leaders from our ecumenical partners, Church of Scotland youth workers, ministers and staff members.

•    Breakout rooms, during which participants will have a short time to reflect on the Scripture passage that was shared during the morning reflection, to pray together, and to ‘compare notes’ from around the congregations and communities represented.

Reflective music and time to simply be; there will be opportunity for individuals to bring prayer requests and causes for prayerful concern and thanksgiving.

If you would like the link for participating in the evening gatherings please email the Church for the zoom details.
