Christmas 2022

Rev Grant Maclaughlan writes:

There are three words that every person needs to hear, whether from a spouse, a partner, a parent, a child, a friend…
“I love you!”

We all long to know that we are loved by others. The Christmas Story is a love story, the moment when God declared, “I love you” to all of humanity through the coming of Jesus. This act of love is expressed through the words of the traditional carol.

Love came down at Christmas,
love all lovely, Love divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
star and angels gave the sign.

God’s love for us is generous, sacrificial, forgiving, life refreshing and it is a love which never gives up.

Why not take a moment and quietly reflect on the words “God Loves Me”. Repeat them slowly in your mind.

This Christmas may we all hear and experience the wonder of God’s love.”

Everyone is welcome to join us for any of our services which will be led by our Minister, Rev. Grant Maclaughlan.

There will be a retiring collection for Maggie’s on 11th December and for Bethany Trust at both the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services.

Sunday 11th December: 11am – we will be joined by the Maggie’s Choir
Sunday 18th December: 11am – Lessons and Carols

National Moment of Reflection

As Dundee’s Lord Provost Bill Campbell invites citizens to take part in a National Moment of Reflection ahead of the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we will open the Church building on Sunday 18th September from 7pm, with those present marking the national silence at 8pm.

This will be an opportunity for people to come in to reflect and pray. At this time of national grief, for some it will be a reminder of personal loss.

For anyone who is struggling with a sense of grief, Grant will also be available to talk to gmaclaughlan@churchofscotland.org.uk

Tuesday Bible Study Groups

Connect Groups – Connecting with God, Connecting with each other

Our next Tuesday Bible Study series will start on September 6th, with a choice of an evening or an afternoon session to try.

We will start with a series on “God’s Love” using a short guide book to explore some psalms which fill out aspects of this vast topic.

We had thought about calling the series “CONNECT with the Bible” but that misses the point, it’s really all about Connecting with Jesus.

For more information, please contact Grant on GMaclaughlan@churchofscotland.org.uk

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.
