Services – Important Information

We look forward to welcoming you to any/all of these services. There are a number of obligations we are required to fulfil in holding services. There are also a few further requirements we have had to put in place in order to keep people safe and facilitate the smooth running of things.


BOOKING: Please let us know by 1pm each Friday if you wish to attend the following Sunday service in either Ormiston or Pencaitland, along with names of anyone else who will be with you. This will help avoid delays on entry and assist in the allocation of seats. Please note that there is a restriction on numbers. So, if plans change and you are not able to attend after all, we’d be grateful to know. If you forget to book, we will endeavour not to turn you away but it may result in delays to others. For Ormiston, please ring or email Margaret Jarvis. For Pencaitland, please ring or email Eileen Henderson. Further information about the obligations we are required to fulfil is available here.

Prayers for the Nation

Across the country Churches and Christians have been praying for the national situation. A number of prayers from church leaders have been collated by Premier Christian Radio and put together under the title Prayers of Hope. Previously recorded for Sundays 22nd and 29th March, these prayers are still pertinent. To listen in and pray along with them, click here.

Try Praying – for those who don’t do church

Try Praying 2020

As in previous years, there is an encouragement to pray this April. It is intended for ordinary folk who don’t see themselves as religious but want to try praying. East Coast Buses will carry a promotion, directing people to www.trypraying.co.uk - a website belonging to There is Hope.

Booklets and other resources for children and adults may be ordered free, or you can download a 7-day app to get you started.

Booklets are also available on the railings outside the Church. Anyone can help themselves. Please contact us if you want versions for children and teenagers.
