OHSS Spring 2020 Magazine

You can download a copy of the latest Magazine here

We have posted out this magazine to those who have requested it. If you know someone who needs a paper copy because they cannot access the Internet please let us know at the email below.

The following letter from the Minister has gone out with the print edition:

 OLD HIGH ST STEPHEN’S CHURCH MAGAZINE

Dear friends,

Here is a special edition of your Church Magazine. We apologise for the lower print quality than usual. Our normal printing is not available, so this has had to be printed on the Risograph at the Manse (and many thanks to Katharina producing it!).

We are sending this because we think you do not have access to the Internet. If you do, you can find the full colour version of the magazine at our website https://www.oldhighststephens.com/2020/04/13/ohss-spring-2020-magazine/ .

If you know of anyone else who would usually get a magazine, but is unable to access the Internet, please let us know at the Manse.

In the very difficult circumstances of the Coronavirus lockdown, the work of the church carries on. Myself, our Pastoral Assistant the Rev Arthur Sinclair, our Mission Development Worker Deacon Dot Getliffe, and our elders, are continuing to keep in touch with the congregation. If you or anyone else would like one of us to call, please do let us know. We are really trying to keep in touch with you, and would be happy to help with any needs you might have.

We are also continuing our worship by producing Sunday services, which are accessible via our website. However, if you would like us to send you the Sunday service on a CD (compact disc) please call the Manse and we will delivered it to you.

Many people bring the weekly offerings to church on a Sunday, but at the moment we are not receiving this income. If that is what you do, could you consider changing over to using a Standing Order, so that your offering goes straight to our bank? Alternatively, it is possible to post us a cheque for the amount you would normally give, or even make a direct payment to the bank. Please contact us and we can tell you more.

Please do keep safe, and keep in touch!

God bless you and yours,

Peter

Prayer

O God at these troubling times I worry so much

Lord help me

To leave my worries with you

To accept help gratefully

To take advice humbly

To know that you see me as I really am and yet still love me

Thank you that in the midst of this storm I can know your peace

Thank you that in a world where there is such illness and panic we can know your calm and peace

Thank you that we have a family the Church, which still upholds the faith.

O God help me put my trust in you. And in trusting know that you are with me.

Amen.

(from the Rev Roderick Macdonald, Beith Parish Church)
