Instead of our usual Sunday service, we will be joining in a service for the whole Church of Scotland for Pentecost, on 31 May. It will be available on this page on Sunday 1 June, and will begin at 10am.

The Moderator of the General Assembly, the Rt Rev Martin Fair, will be leading the service which will include worship, prayers, music, a sermon and Bible readings.

You can also watch on the Church of Scotland website, and on our Facebook page. Our Facebook page has a captioned version of the video. A BSL version is also available- please contact us for details.

Trailer: Moderator to host church-wide Pentecost service

Congregations across Scotland will be joining together-remotely-for a special Pentecost service on 31 May.

Rt Rev Martin Fair, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, will be hosting the service which will include worship, prayers, music, a sermon, Bible readings, and will close with the Moderator’s wife Mrs Elaine Fair singing The Blessing.

The Moderator is encouraging congregations and people of faith across Scotland, and beyond, to join together in worship as a whole church.

“Pentecost Sunday is an opportunity to rejoice in the birth of the church and to celebrate our togetherness as a church family,” Dr Fair said.

“It was the coming of the Spirit upon those first disciples that brought the church to life, with power and passion – and the same Spirit unites us still.”

This will be the Sunday service for Old High St Stephen’s.

Watch, listen to, or read the service here on our website on Sunday from 10am.

We will provide links on our Facebook page and Twitter account, and in an email to the congregation. We also plan to distribute audio CDs. Please contact us if you would like to receive our emails or CDs.

After the service, Peter and Katharina will host an virtual after-church coffee time from the Manse via video.

Freewill Offering Scheme- important information

Many people currently give to the church via the Free Will Offering Scheme (weekly envelopes). Of course, these cannot be brought to church at the moment.

However, anyone can send a cheque made payable to Old High St Stephen’s to our Treasurer.

We would also encourage you to set up a standing order to make regular payments instead. Both out Treasurer and the FWO convenor are happy to discuss contributions to the church at any time.

Please contact us for further information.
