KIRK ANNOUNCEMENTS

7 - 14 August 2020

WELCOME TO WORSHIP at Cramond Kirk in church and on-line. We are glad you have been able to join us and hope you enjoy worshipping with us.

KIRK SERVICES ARE BACK and we are holding two short services each Sunday, the first at 10 am with the Kirk doors open from 9.45 am and the second at 11.15 am with the doors open from 11 am. Please note the 10 am service on 9 August is now full but there are a few spaces available at the 11.15 am service. The services are similar to the Morning Prayer service, with an address, readings and prayers and last about half an hour. Although there is no singing, Simon plays the organ during the service. There is a maximum number of 50 people allowed at each service and we therefore ask that you book in advance. To do this, please either phone the Kirk Office between 9 am and 12 noon, Monday to Friday, on 336 2036 or e-mail : cramond.kirk@blueyonder.co.uk and let us know your name, contact telephone number and which service you wish to attend. When you arrive, the duty elder will check your name off on the register and this is kept for 28 days for track and trace purposes.  The Kirk has been made as safe as possible, with social distancing measures in place, hand sanitisers at the doors and a one way system in and out of the sanctuary. Face coverings need to be worn but please don’t worry if you forget to bring a face mask as we have disposable masks available. We look forward to seeing you soon.

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS Please note the Kirk is no longer open for private prayer on Wednesday evenings.

HOLIDAY COVER Dr Barr will be taking time off from 10 - 24 August. During his absence Revd Ian Gilmour and Iain Majcher will be undertaking all pastoral duties. Ian can be contacted on 07794 149852 or at IGilmour@churchofscotland.org.uk and Iain can be contacted on 281 6175 or at IMajcher@churchofscotland.org.uk.

THE KIRK OFFICE will be closed on Monday, 10 & Tuesday, 11 August.

A NEW WAY TO DONATE As the number of people visiting the Cramond Kirk website increases and with many of the visitors living far from the Kirk as well as many of our members unable to attend services at the moment but still wishing to support the life and work of Cramond Kirk, a “Donate” button has been added to the Kirk website as an alternative way of giving. The donation site is secure and easy to use. The “Donate” button can be found on the front page of the Kirk website at cramond.kirk@blueyonder.co.uk.

BIBLE STUDY Please note that Bible Study is now held fortnightly (not weekly). The next Bible Study will be on Wednesday, 19 August starting at 7.15 pm and held on Zoom. If you would like to take part, please let Louise in the Kirk Office know (cramond.kirk@blueyonder.co.uk) and she can send you a Zoom invitation.

TWITTER & FACEBOOK The Kirk’s Twitter feed is available at @cramondkirk1 and a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cramondkirk2 so please do keep in touch on either to check all the latest news & happenings. Both are also accessible from the Kirk website at www.cramondkirk.org.uk & if you do visit either site, please remember to “share” and “like” our page.

WEEKLY ON-LINE SERVICES Daily Devotions, Pause for Thought and Sunday Morning Worship continue to be available on the Kirk website and on Facebook. 

Daily Devotions - from Monday to Saturday you’ll find a “Daily Devotion” from either Russell or Iain. These are available on Facebook & on the “video” tab found on the homepage of the Kirk website at www.cramondkirk.org.uk. The text of the Daily Devotions is also available under “Latest News”

Morning Service - every Sunday from 10 am Russell holds a short morning service. The service is pre-recorded so if you can’t manage to watch at 10 am, it will be available to watch on the Kirk’s Facebook page at any time as well as on the “video” tab of the Kirk website along with a separate audio version.

Pause for Thought - Iain’s “Pause for Thought” is broadcast live on Facebook at 7.15 pm every Thursday. If anyone needs help or advice on how to join Facebook, please be in touch with the Kirk Office at cramond.kirk@blueyonder.co.uk as Iain has created a guide on how to join.
