JOINT SERVICE:  Today and next Sunday, our three congregations of Claremont, Mossneuk and South Parish, have the joy of worshipping together. Please sit anywhere you like (there are no reserved seats!) and if there’s anything you’re unsure about, please ask one of the duty team.  If you’re sitting beside someone you don’t know, please take a moment or two to introduce yourself, so that we can worship as together as friends, not strangers.


‘How wonderful, how beautiful, when brothers and sisters get along! .. Yes that’s where God commands the blessing, ordains eternal life.’

Psalm 133 The Message. 


Flowers in the sanctuary today are provided by Helen Morton.


PASTORAL SUPPORT: If you are aware of anyone who is unwell or would appreciate the flowers, please leave their name in orange book on high table or leave message with Church Office.  Thank you.   Maureen Thomson, Pastoral Care Coordinator.

CLAREMONT FACEBOOK GROUPS INVITE FOR SOUTH PARISH CONGREGATION:  Claremont have two private Facebook groups, Claremont Message Board and Prayer group.  We would like to invite the congregation of South Parish to join these groups to share information and support each other in prayer.  (To access either group you'll need to have a Facebook profile.) 


To join, put in the search bar of the main Facebook page/app: 'Claremont message board' or 'prayer group' and hit search.  Once it comes up, tap or click the "request to join" button.  Depending on the time of day, it might take awhile for your request to be accepted.  Claremont message board has our logo as the profile picture and the Prayer Group has a landscape photo. If you need any help, please speak to Jenni McLaren.
