The Sunday before Advent starts is marked as the feast of Christ the King. A comparatively new feast, introduced by Pope XI in 1922, it compares and contrasts the kingship of Christ with the passing rulers, realms, and empires of our world. It reminds us of the nature of the King we pledge our allegiance to. The Lordship/Kingship of Christ is a strong theme in the New Testament.
The service this week at 11:00 will be led by the Revd Alistair Cumming (Minister of the Church of Scotland).
The Bible readings will be Jeremiah 23: 1-6 and Luke 23: 33-43.
The Junior Church and Chinese Group will meet as usual, leaving for their own activities and worship after the second hymn.
Coffee & tea will be available after the service. All very welcome – do join us
