Church Shop, new online version

Since our church shop had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, we have been looking for alternative ways of both raising money for our church, and ensuring that those items we no longer need or use, go to good homes with people who do need them.

I am delighted that Stewart Cockburn has agreed to sell things online for us, on Facebook Forth Buy and Sell.

All we need to do is:-
1.Photograph the item
2.State how much we think it is worth
3.Write a description
4.Email these three to Stewart on stewartforth@mail.com
5.Keep the item at home until it sells.
Stewart and Jennifer will advertise the items and let you now when they find a buyer.
And all the money will go straight to Forth St Paul’s Parish Church.
Time to start that overdue Spring clear out!

Ways to pray and worship during this pandemic

lOur Moderator is putting a video on Facebook every day at 10am. Just look for “Moderator of the general Assembly of the Church of Scotland” and then ‘videos’

And most exciting of all, at Forth St Paul`s,  we will be sharing our Sunday morning worship LIVE, on Zoom.
on alternate Sundays, with Worship in the Church on the other weeks
Enormous gratitude to my good friends of Meditation chapel, they are giving us a one hour slot, 11-12 each Sunday, to hold our worship service. This means that it can be interactive, but I ask that everyone keep their microphones muted (or switched off) unless they wish to speak, and of course switch mics on for singing hymns!! My plan is for a fairly short service, followed by time for chat

This is the link

The address is http://meditationchapel.org/peace-chapel/
When you click on the link, you will be offered the chance to download Zoom, and clear instructions on how to do this. So probably worth starting maybe 10 mins or so before the meeting is due to begin. I find that each step takes a few minutes, so don’t panic, say the Lord’s Prayer between each stage and we all should be fine.

For those who do not have internet and wish to use a phone
