Yesterday we said goodbye to church member Janet Campbell, who was 96 years old.  Thank you to everyone who came out of their houses to pay their respects to her as the funeral cortège made its way through the village. Janet had lived most of he life in Townhill and she was one of a group of the first women to be ordained as elders in Townhill and Kingseat Parish Church in 1974.                                                    Flowers from Janet's funeral:

Our Mission Statement


Townhill & Kingseat Parish Church seeks to proclaim the grace and mercy of God through the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. We also seek to share His amazing grace and love within our Church, and by reaching out into the wider communities.

 

Our Vision Statement

Our Vision is continually to:

  • Be open in our approach to worship, seeking to ensure that it is relevant to all generations.
  • Live as God's community, caring for one another and serving those in need.
  • Grow in our relationship with God as we meet, pray and study the Bible together, encouraging one another in using their God given gifts and talents.
  • Provide a spiritual home where all are welcome.
  • Engage with the wider community, reaching out to them with the message of Jesus Christ.

A reflection on suffering (Job 28-42):                                               The book of Job tells us it’s OK to be angry with God. God is big enough to handle our anger. It’s also OK to question God. However, we may not get the answer we are looking for.  God doesn’t explain why Job has suffered so much. Instead God shows Job the wonders of the world. God shows Job one of his favourite creatures Leviathan. A mythical sea monster, or maybe something like a crocodile; but very scary anyway. God is so proud of Leviathan. It is untameable. It is fierce. It is wild. And it is wonderful! Job asks, “Why has this happened to me when I don’t deserve it” and, in effect, God says, “Yes I know, but look at all this fantastic world in which you live! There is so much you don’t understand. There is so much you can’t understand. But isn’t life amazing?!”

 

Pray for the community

 

That the threat of illness would help many in society recognise what is truly important in life, and their need for hope in the face of death. Pray for the trypraying banners and bus ads, that these will turn many people to seek God in prayer.

 

That time in isolation from others would provide an opportunity for non-Christians to reflect, and turn to Christ.

 

Pray for those who are elderly and vulnerable, for those in care homes, and those who need home care, that they will know God’s healing and peace, and that there would be adequate medical and personal care.  

 

Pray for the friends and family of those who are ill, that they would be comforted and enabled to care for those affected.

 

That God’s mercy and power would be seen in the slowing down and eradication of the virus.

 
 

Prayer for today

 

Almighty God,
I praise you for Jesus
who was able to transcend the laws of this universe.
He fed thousands with a small packed lunch.
He healed the sick,
calmed the storm,
walked on water.
He rose from the dead!
I come to you in his name,
because my weary soul is in need of feeding,
of healing, 
of calm,
of wonder.
I need your miraculous power in my life.
Amen
