A Prayer for Advent Sunday 29 November

God of the Advent promise,
We come on our journey to the place where the promise is renewed.
Even in the darkness,
We look for the light of your presence to be revealed.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God of the Advent promise,
We come on our journey to the place where hope is renewed.
Even in the midst of all that we have faced in times past,
We trust in the hope that does not disappoint.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God of the Advent promise,
We come on our journey to the place where we must wait for a time.
Even though we have waited in times past,
We gladly do so again trusting that our waiting shall yield the coming of God.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God of the Advent promise,
We come on our journey to the place of anticipation.
Even though we do not yet see,
We anticipate the good gift that you will offer.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God of the Advent promise,
We come on our journey to the place where we resolve to journey on. .
Even though we have travelled through hard times,
We go forward, trusting in the promise: Immanuel, shall come to us.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Advent Sunday 29 November

Sunday Morning Worship

Welcome to this week’s Advent Sunday service recorded on 29 November 2020 at MPC, and led by our minister, Hugh. As we rejoice in the light and hope of Advent, we are also celebrating St Andrew’s Day. We open with the great Advent hymn ‘O Come, O Come Emmanuel’ played by Robert. Caitlin reads from John and we’re delighted to have Aileen, Rebecca and Morven leading praise. We hope you enjoy sharing in church and online as we enjoy some Scottish melodies, including “The Rowan Tree” “Eriskay Love Lilt”, “Ae Fond Kiss”, “Lewis Folk Melody” and “Bunessan”.

Welcome to our website!

We are a congregation of the Church of Scotland with a passion for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our aim is that everyone in our town, parish and beyond will hear about the saving Grace of Jesus and our prayer is that many men, women, boys and girls will respond to His invitation to follow Him. We are a lively church with a lot going on for all-ages during the week, not just Sundays.

So take some time to look through this site to find out more about what’s happening here. It will give you a flavour of who and what we are as a congregation. More immediate information can be found on our Facebook Page. We hope that as you browse our site and Facebook page, you will want to come and join us in worship and our other activities, but more importantly, that you may be encourage to find out more about Jesus.

Our church building has stood on its present site since 1805, overlooking the town and harbour. Adjacent to it stand the town cross and a large historic anchor, recovered from the bay, both of which together provide a symbolic reminder of the message of the church - that Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, is our steadfast anchor in life; and as our church tower was once used to guide boats into the harbour, it is our hope and prayer that Christ’s light will guide you through life and, in time, into His 'heavenly harbour'.
