Communion

As a congregation, we have looked forward to partaking of the Lord’s Supper again, after such a long time without it due to the pandemic. Hence the Kirk Session is delighted to announce that the Lord’s Supper will be dispensed, God willing, at the morning service on 9th January 2022. Services associated with the communion will be from Saturday 8th January, till the evening of the 9th, as was the case with the communions held in June and December each year prior to the pandemic.

The Kirk Session will be opened after the midweek meeting on Wednesday 5th and the Session will also meet on the evenings of Thursday 6th and Friday 7th at 7.30pm, and after the service on Saturday 8th to meet with any who wish to take communion for the first time. Please contact the minister or your local elder at any time should you wish to discuss this or have any questions relating to taking communion for the first time.

The Session earnestly hope and pray that the prolonged period without a communion, along with the grievous providence of the pandemic itself, will have caused us all to think deeply about our relationship to God, as well as our privileges in the gospel, one of the most special being the Lord’s Supper. A more detailed intimation about the communion will be given nearer the time, but the Session was keen to make the announcement of it at this point, so that we may all give thanks and pray for God’s blessing in anticipation.
