Worship @ APC
NB In view of rising utility costs and to make the best stewardship of our resources, the Kirk Session has decided that Sunday morning services in January and February will take place in the Church Centre instead of in the sanctuary. While we will all miss being in our beautiful church for a few weeks, this offers us a cosier space and the opportunity to enjoy worship in a slightly different way. The service will be live-streamed as usual and there will be the normal chidlren and youth provision and tea and coffee will be served after the service.
From March onwards we will again meet together as a church family at 10:30 in the Sanctuary and then the pre school and primary age children go off into their own teaching programmes after the second song/hymn. There is always tea and coffee servced after the service which gives everyone a time to meet and chat together and to welcome any visitors we may have. Please make yourself known any time you are visiting! There is still an area in the sanctuary with extra space to allow those who prefer to be socially distanced.
The service is also live streamed and remains on the church YouTube channel shoud you wish to watch it during the week. Just search for Auchterarder Parish on the YouTube website.
Worship is suitable for all ages. We meet together as a rule at the beginning for an all-age start and then the chidlren go off into Kidsteam, their age appropraite teaching group. It has had a break over July but begins again on Sunday 07 August.
Praise is led by our praise orchestra, piano and organ - songs and hymns are a mixture of old and new and use is also made of a variety of media to watch or to listen to, or perhaps even to introduce and/or learn something new.
There are 2 opportunities for prayer in our two prayer groups. There is one held via ZOOM each Saturdy morning from 9:00 - 9:30. And as result of the changes in COVID regulations, we can meet again in person on a Sunday moring 9:30 in the Board Room in the Community Church Centre. For further details and to get the link for the ZOOM group, email: LMcChlery@churchofscotland.org.uk
Sunday worship is live streamed on the Auchterarder Parish YouTube chanel. It will also appear shortly afterwards on the homepage of this website and a link will be posted on Facebook and Twitter.
If you know someone who doesn’t have access to technology, we have CD recordings available. Please firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
We meet on the last Sunday of each month, to celebrate a short service of Holy Communion after the service.
