Welcome and Introduction

Call to Worship

We come this day to worship,
our souls thirsting for God,
our spirits longing for love
We come to the One who supplies every need we come to the one who gives us living water

We come, with prayers in our hearts, and words too painful to speak
We come to the One who listens to our hearts,
who carries our suffering through eternity

We come,
with our brokenness and loss,
and with our hopes
to be made whole
We come to the One
who knows all our secrets,

who brings peace to all of us  and to each of us,

we come,
with our brokenness and loss,
and with our hopes
to be made whole
We come to the One
who knows all our secrets,
who brings peace to all of us– and to each of us,
who meets us at His Table.

Easter Eggs – At its meeting on 20 February, the Kirk Session agreed to support an appeal to the congregation for 60 Easter Eggs for the clients who attend the Meet and 2 Veg project in our church. This project supports some of the most vulnerable people in our community as well as saving tonnes of food which would otherwise go to landfill. Morrisons [and other stores] are currently selling the following Easter Eggs for £1.50 Cadbury’s Mini Eggs Chocolate Easter Egg, Cadbury’s Chocolate Buttons Easter Egg and Cadbury’s Freddo Easter Egg.  Of course, other eggs are available! 
If you feel you would like to support the project, please pass your Easter Egg to the Church Office or to Hilary.  The Kirk Session will fund the purchase of 60 Easter cards bearing a Christian message which will be handed out with the Easter Eggs.  This is low level Christian outreach which we hope will sow seeds of faith.
