John 14:6

Introductory music

Intermezzo by P Mascagni, played on our church organ.


Welcome to our time of worship. Thank you for joining us. Most of our videos have subtitles, which you can switch on / off. On a computer you may have a option “CC” to choose subtitles in English. On phone or tablet, you may need to choose subtitles from a settings menu.


This week’s time of worship is led by John Dent, and he welcomes us in in the video below:


Our opening hymn is “O Word of God incarnate”.

Bible Readings

Psalm 18 verses 16-30 read by Helen Mahood

John chapter 14 verses 1-11 read by Ruth Mahood


Our next hymn is “Thou art the way”.


by John Dent, which has subtitles.


Let us reflect on these words as we sing “God, our Gracious Father”, a version of the Lord’s Prayer.


Since March, Scottish Christians from many churches have been praying together on Sunday evenings. Ramanee Bengough leads us now in the prayer for this week.


Our final hymn is “Guide me, O thou great Jehovah”, recorded for BBC Songs of Praise at St Asaph Cathedral, Denbighshire, Wales.


We normally say the words of the Grace to each other. We say them now to whoever is with us, and to everyone we have thought about during this time of worship.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore. Amen.

Final music

Wachet auf by Bach, played on our church organ


As mentioned in a previous newsletter, we are making plans for holding services in our church building, and should be able to share these with you by the end of August. We will continue to use our website for worship too!

With thanks to John Dent, Ruth Mahood, Helen Mahood, Ramanee Bengough, Ed Muirhead and Bill Mclean.
