 church star


The star on the Bell Tower - We've now got ourselves through what feels like the longest of Januarys, and things are looking a bit brighter again now the vaccine programme is underway.  I reckon the star has had its time, and it'll be switched off this weekend - probably shining its last on Saturday night.

 

 

In addition to our usual Cat Tree Church service on-line, from this Sunday you can also join others on Zoom!

We'll be Zooming at 10am and 11.30am. We'll start with about 5 minutes of welcome and chat, before watching the recording of the service, then more time for chat afterwards.

Let me know if you'd like to join us, and I'll email you the link. It is also possible to Zoom by telephone, so if you know anyone who'd like to join that way, then let them, and me, know.


From Friday 7th January 2021 all places of worship must close during this new lockdown.

Please be aware funeral services and weddings are still allowed to be held but with very restricted numbers.

You can find the Church of Scotland’s latest Guidance here.  

Please contact Rev Alison McBrier or Session Clerk, Margo McMurdo (contact page), if you have any questions?

We are most appreciative of all the support we receive from members and friends of our congregation and parish,
 especially at this very difficult time.

 

 

Dunlop is a small, friendly village in rural Ayrshire.
We in Dunlop Parish Church of Scotland feel that our church is at the heart of the community.
We have a long and proud history of loving and serving the people of our parish, which also includes the communities of Burnhouse, Lugton, Newmill and the Halket.
Dear friends and neighbours, as this crisis develops it is increasingly clear that we need to avoid physical contact and stay at home as much as possible, so the church doors will have to remain closed.
We know that God is always active in our lives and our world.
There has been tremendous community spirit in the parishes of Caldwell and Dunlop, and we are seeing that reflected across the country.

I'm going to have a shot at using Facebook Live for a short time of reflection and prayer on Sunday morning. Look out for that on the Church Facebook pages. I'll also provide a range of on-line resources to help you worship in your own homes. Check the TV and Radio schedules for other Acts of Worship that you can watch or listen to.
Remember that physical distancing does not mean social distancing - we are social creatures and we can maintain our social contact by whatever means we have - on and off-line. Emails, phone calls, waving and smiling at a safe physical distance.

And we can pray - for our communities - people of all ages.
For all those whose lives and occupations are disrupted, and who are struggling with financial uncertainty.
For those who are working to maintain supply chains, and essential services. For our civic and religious leaders.
For all those who work in healthcare - in whatever capacity.
For researchers and scientists who are working to create treatments and a vaccine.

Keep caring for each other, as I know you are.
Please pass on my words here to anyone you know is not on-line.
Peace, and hope, and love be with you all,
Alison

Rev Alison McBrier,
Minister.
Caldwell and Dunlop Parish Churches
