At this current time, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to meet for worship and activities.
UPDATE 29 March 2020 - We have created a podcast which can be found on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/eastwoodparishchurch and on Spotify. The written form of the Podcast is on the Sermon Catchup Page. There is also now a blog on the Our Minister page.
Greetings from Eastwood Parish Church of Scotland, located at the foot of Mansewood Road, where it meets Thornliebank Road. Our church building is just a short way up the hill behind the halls. We worship every Sunday at 11.15am.
We are a committed, hardworking, friendly and lively church family where everyone is valued and made welcome. We strive to be a major part of the immediate community life around the parish of Eastwood and aim to serve both young and old. Everyone is welcome at our clubs and activities. Please feel free to join us, you do not need to be a church member, just come along any time or contact us if you require more information. We can offer a worship space where everyone can feel valued and welcome.
We would be delighted to welcome you and yours to any of our services and activities at Eastwood.
Eastwood Parish News
Is a new initiative that encourages all of us to stop at 3pm every Thursday to spend 10 minutes with God in Prayer.
This week could you please pray for:
- for all those affected by the coronavirus;
- for those who already feel isolated and will now feel lonelier than ever;
- for the homeless who have nowhere to go;
- for our NHS staff as they lead the fightback against this coronavirus;
- or those who looking forward to planned events, say, a wedding, a baptism, or a longed for holiday.
The Church of Scotland will be providing a recorded service every Sunday via the Church of Scotland website and social media platforms, as well as transcripts which can be printed and delivered to those who are not able to access online resources. The Church of Scotland will also be aiming to provide guidance and ideas for how congregations can connect with each other and offer spiritual practices for members to follow in their own time. This will, from next week, include webinars to help you learn how to use online tools to connect with your local congregation and community. For this purpose we have created a dedicated page (https://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/worship/services-online) on the Church of Scotland website which will be updated over the days and weeks ahead.
Early conversations with BBC Scotland about a possible Sunday service to be broadcast are taking place; further details will be released as they become available. The Moderator of the General Assembly, the Right Reverend Colin Sinclair, has prepared a brief act of worship, and this will be available on the Church’s website: https://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/home, and on social media, from the morning of Sunday 22nd March 2020. He will also deliver a live daily reflection on Facebook beginning on the morning of Monday 23rd March, at 10 am. The Archbishop of Canterbury will also broadcast on Radio 4 at 8.40 am on the morning of Sunday 22nd March.
