Reflections for Sunday 5th April 2020

Coronavirus Prayer for Australia


'Heavenly father, we commit our nation to you.

'In this terrible time of great need and suffering for so many people.

'And we do this also for the entire world, places far from this country there are people suffering even more, going through tremendous hardship, crying out, we pray you'll hear their voice.

'Pray you'll deliver them, that you'll send them peace and that you'll send them comfort and you'll send them strength in this time of great, great need.

Church Information during Covid-19 pandemic


As people will be aware, we are in an evolving situation nationally. As a church we are trying to listen to advice and take what precautionary measures we can. In line with current Government and NHS guidance, the most important thing to protect yourself and other people is to maintain good standards of hygiene.

Sunday Club

At Pencaitland Parish Church we have a small but enthusiastic Sunday Club which is open to children and young people of all ages. It is led by a team dedicated to demonstrating the teachings of the Bible and sharing the Christian message. The Sunday Club meets in the Carriage House after the first part of the morning service.
