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:
Kingseat 9.45 am weekly
Townhill 11.30 am weekly
Numbers are limited in each building and you must wear a face covering unless exempt.
Prayer for today
we pray for our world
in which there is so much division,
hatred and violence.
We pray for the people and places in this world,
especially where the community you identify with means that you are at war with others, or targeted by others;
those others who are, in reality, just like you.
We pray, bring your peace to these places, and to all people.
By the power of your Holy Spirit,
bring an end to division, hatred and violence,
in Jesus' name. Amen.
Thought for this week from Galatians 1 & 2
Paul, in his letter to the Galatians,
is convinced that
no one is righteous before God.
Nothing we can do can make us right with God -
not keeping the Law,
not being a good person,
not serving the church as elder or minister,
not washing the floors and cleaning the toilets in the church hall,
not helping the poor,
not bringing thousands of people to Jesus.
None of this makes us right with God because it cannot.
We are sinners.
Each of us.
And like the tax collector in the parable of Jesus (Luke 18),
we can only throw ourselves on the mercy of God.
We are only made right with God,
we only find justification,
through faith in Jesus Christ.
Or perhaps more accurately we are justified
through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ.
For there is a danger
that we turn belief into a work,
so that we claim that we are justified through our own ability to have faith.
Except that even the faith we have is a gift from God.
We are not justified before God by believing the right thing.
Not by being a Christian,
not by saying a believers prayer.
not by committing ourselves to follow Christ.
We are justified,
we are made right with God
through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ
who loves us and gave himself for us.
This is the free gift offered to us.
Our role is simply to accept it.
