A prayer for Sunday 3 December
First Sunday in Advent

O Lord, we thank You for this time of Advent.
A time to be still and know that You are God.
A time to prepare our hearts and minds.
We thank You for this time of peace and calm to prepare.
A time to think about what happened all those hundreds of years ago.
Let us take a moment to reflect on the star,
the star that shone as a beacon of hope over the lowly stable.
As the flame of the hope candle flickers
we give thanks for all we have.
We give thanks for our families and friends
and for the time we may be able to spend together
during Advent and at Christmas time.
We give thanks for the farmers
who will provide the food on our tables on Christmas day.
We give thanks for the stars
that pinprick the sky on a winter's night.
We give thanks for the moon
that guides our way in the darkness.
We give thanks for the beauty of nature
and the world You have made.

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'.
