Moderator Invites You to a Pentecost Service
Today's service for Sunday, 31st May is a special pentecost service led by the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Rt Rev Martin Fair. The service can be accessed from the Church of Scotland web site and is available from 10.00 AM but will be available to view any time after that.
In the meantime here is the invitation to the service in the Moderator's own words:

Introducing Our Locum - Rev. Pamela Strachan
At the beginning of May Rev. Pamela Strachan became our locum Minister taking over from Rev. John Smith.
In the last month you may have seen Pamela several times in our online services. Living at Glenhighton, she is a member of our community and was a member of our Worship Workshop prior to qualifying as an Ordained Local Minister.
By way of an introduction and to help us to learn a little more about our locum Minister, especially while we are unable to meet and chat with her in person, here is a short interview conducted by her husband Sir Hew Strachan.

New Kirk Matters Published
Kirk Matters Easter 2020
The Easter 2020 edition of the Church Magazine, Kirk Matters, has been published and in normal circumstances would be dropping onto the doormats of  households in the parish. Sadly these are not normal times so we are postponing deliveries until we are all able to venture out again.
However hard copies of this edition are available from the Broughton Village Shop.
Life and Work May 2020
Life and Work May 2020
During this challenging period, Life and Work (the Church of Scotland magazine) is committed to helping keep our Christian community connected. The magazine is printing as normal, but, aware that many subscribers will have their deliveries delayed, especially if they normally receive it through their church, they have given us permission to publish an online version through our web site.

Some questions about Lazarus Sunday and Palm Sunday

For a little light (hopefully) relief, why not have a go at our quiz. It's all multiple choice. You have as long as you like for each question and at the end you can repeat the quiz but only your first attempt in a session will be recorded in the stats. Don't worry. No names are recorded, just numbers.

Start by reading the question below and clicking on your chosen answer from the four choices.

Quiz Number 2 Some questions about Lazarus Sunday and Palm Sunday

Carlops, Newlands and Kirkurd, and West Linton Church Newsletters
The current presbytery plan proposes that three churches in Upper Tweeddale (Skirling, Broughton and Tweedsmuir), will be linked in the fullness of time with the three churches in the West Linton group (West Linton, Carlops, and Newlands and Kirkurd).

There are still a few hurdles to be cleared before that comes into effect. However in anticipation of new relationships with our neighbours, and to help to find out more about the three churches in the West Linton area we have been publishing the latest editions of the Carlops Church newsletter, the Newlands and Kirkurd newsletter and the West Linton newsletter here and churches in the West Linton area will make our own Kirk Matters available to their community.
