Christian Aid Week 2022

As usual, we will be supporting Christian Aid week (15th – 21st May 2022), with pew envelope collections and a lunch at church.

We’ll be holding a Christian Aid lunch in the Hall after the service on Sunday 15th May. This is the first time we will have been together for lunch for more than two years, and we are conscious of how folks may feel
about sharing food. So we are suggesting you bring along a simple cold lunch for yourself and the church will provide fruit, biscuits and coffee.

We ask that on that day, if you can, you give to Christian Aid the equivalent
to what you might spend if you were to have a Sunday lunch in a local café or restaurant.

If you wish to donate online, you can use the link below

Thank you

Connecting with God

Over the last two years we have enjoyed times of fellowship and learning on a Tuesday evening through our Zoom ‘Connect with the Bible’.

On Tuesday 26th April from 7.30pm we will be celebrating the end of this group at the manse and the beginning of something new.

Our new groups will be held in person at church from Tuesday 3rd May.

These groups will have 20 minutes of connecting with one another as we look to build and deepen our friendships across the church, 20 minutes of exploring a passage of the Bible and 20 minutes of a prayerful exercise.

The groups are designed for people at all stages of faith and people will not be asked to do anything they are not comfortable with.

Let us know if you would like to join us on 26th April, or from 3rd May – GMaclaughlan@churchofscotland.org.uk

Bereavement: Spaces for Listening

The pain of bereavement and loss never leaves, we simply learn to live with a loved ones absence. The scar may fade, however the scar is still there.

A mum or dad, a spouse or partner, a son or daughter, a friend, someone who made a difference to our lives!

Whatever the relationship, sometimes we need space to talk. To talk about the person, to share our memories, to tell our stories; to share how we continue to live with the reality of their death; to be honest about how much we miss them and how we are coping or perhaps not coping.

If you have experienced a bereavement and would like a safe space to talk openly with others, then please join our Spaces For Listening Bereavement Group.

This will be led by Grant, and will take place once a month on Mondays (2nd May, 6th June, 4th July) at 2pm- 3:30pm in the Vestry, a downstairs room at church.

You are welcome to come to each of these sessions or just one. We’d like to keep the numbers small, so please email Grant to let him know you are coming GMaclaughlan@churchofscotland.org.uk.

You may also want to share with other family members or friends that this is taking place, if you think it might be helpful for them.

During Holy Week it is the tradition of many congregations to gather on the Thursday evening before Good Friday to celebrate the Lord’s Supper. This will be an informal and quiet time of reflection.

As we have to comply with Covid guidelines on celebrating the Lord’s Supper, we cannot pass trays of bread and wine, and we are looking at ways of doing this differently.

This Walk of Witness will start at St Mary’s Church Lochee and will end at Lochee Parish Church with various stops en route. Tea/coffee and hot cross buns at the end of the walk.

Temporary changes in the building

There are some temporary changes necessary to how we access the church sanctuary.

We had a recent building inspection by the Church of Scotland Health and Safety Officer. As a result, a number of issues have been identified regarding the building.

Firstly, the condition of the stonework and windows above the front entrance on Blackness Avenue have been identified as being in poor condition. This means that until we have some remedial work done, we
cannot use the front entrance.

Entrance and exit, to and from the church building will only be from the Shaftesbury Terrace (ie halls) door.

Secondly, a crack at ceiling height above the organ and lectern needs further investigation to ensure that it is stable. Until this is done, we need to keep a 2-metre safe zone beneath it. This unfortunately means that the organ will not be used for leading worship and the lectern will not be used.

We are currently working on a plan to organise for the appropriate professionals to quote for remedial work to be carried out but this will take time. We will update you when we can.
