Order of Service

Our service times can be found to the right of this page.  Our services do vary in character, with All-Age about once every six weeks.

We stand to sing, as we are able, and sit or kneel to pray.

We use the Scottish Liturgy 1982 Blue Service Book.
The Bible and Lectionary reading pages are displayed on the front wall to the left of the sanctuary.
A hymn sheet will be given to you on arrival.  We use a variety of styles and music for our hymns and they are chosen by a group of our members to enhance and elaborate on the service and sermon theme.
