CLAREMONT CALLING: last week’s Claremont Calling is still available – an excellent introduction and background to our series on Ezekiel. It can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmK9hZP7rdE&list=PLJI46Q9T1HgoqgVSYRmBrliLHrZjZ5gFy&t=5s

TAKING IT FURTHER: last year, we had informal meetings on Tuesday evenings to go over some of the issues and themes coming from Sunday services. We then had a return to the Focus Group series for that, but for this series on Ezekiel which starts this week, “Taking It Further” returns.

Ezekiel is a big book (48 chapters) and there are many strange sounding things in it. We cannot cover all these aspects on a Sunday, so here is a chance to fill out our grasp on what this vital Old Testament book is saying to us.

HOLIDAY CLUB: This summer there will be monkeys and snakes in Claremont Parish Church during the annual Holiday club, from Monday 26th July to Friday 30th July. The theme is Jungle Adventure and some of our leaders have volunteered to wear a monkey costume but the snakes will be real: on our final day, we will have a small petting zoo of animals for the children to engage with, on top of an exciting and educational program for each day of the week. Unfortunately, the places due to covid regulations are limited. There will be a morning and an afternoon session and weather allowing, outside space as well as inside space of the church will be in use. It is promising to be a breath of fresh air to make the summer holidays count for kids in the neighbourhood! any questions regarding the Jungle Adventure Holiday club should be directed to Murdo McTear at m.mct99@gmail.com Further details regarding registration can be found on the Claremont Parish Church massage Board on Facebook.
