Month: June 2021

Sunday Worship, 27 June 2021

Usually towards the end of the school year we are involved in end-of-year celebrations with the local schools with which we have chaplaincy links – Aitkenbar, Braehead, Dalreoch, Knoxland and Dumbarton Academy.

Because of Covid-19 restrictions we are again unable to be directly involved this year, though during the year we have tried to maintain our links with the schools, sometimes providing them with material, sometimes reassuring Head Teachers and staff that they remain in our thoughts and prayers.

In our service today we’ll focus on young people in schools, the staff, and families and other carers at home.

Blessed be the LORD whose unfailing love for me was wonderful. Psalm 31: 21

We’ve been there and had the t-shirt, …
