Hello and welcome to Moncreiff Parish Church webpages. I am the Rev Sarah Ross. It is great to welcome you as you explore and find out more what is happening here. I am exploring and finding out more too as I join Moncreiff as the new minister. Although I have only moved up the hill from High Blantyre this is new territory for me too. Thank you for the welcome and the support over these past few weeks. I look forward to ministry here and to meeting you in person at some point!
And as we continue to live through this pandemic it would be fair to say that nothing is quite the way it was. Even when we do return to some kind of normal it will be new as the people of the congregation and community adjust to the changes that have inevitably occurred over these past months.
With change there always comes the good and the uncomfortable. They say change is as good as a rest because it frees us up from the same old, same old and gives us new perspective. The author of Ecclesiastes says that ‘there is nothing new under the sun’ yet in Isaiah the Lord says ‘see I am making all things new’. Whatever your perspective, in this New Year which we all hope will end on a much brighter note than 2020, I pray that you will know God’s presence with you. Do keep in touch with us at Moncreiff through following the website or visiting us on social media at Facebook. Or get in touch if there is a way that we can support you at this time. Although the Church building is currently closed, worship is available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page as well as on a dedicated telephone line (01355 681230) where you can listen to the current service at whatever a local call costs you. And behind the scenes we are continuing to support the wider congregation and community as best we can.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
With prayers and love for 2021 and beyond,
God bless you,
Rev Sarah Ross (Minister)
