Morning Service at 10.30 am on Sunday 30th January at Redwell School.
Message from the Vicar:
Psalm 65:11 daily; ‘You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance’.
This week we are continuing our series on the book of Romans. The Bible Project produces one or two short videos for each book of the Bible which give a helpful over view. Here’s the link for Romans 1-4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
We hope this week’s service will be live streamed but that isn’t certain. There will be groups for all under 18’s.
We will be returning to having refreshments after services from February.
All Age Services
I would like to pass on my deepest thanks to those of you who have made the first Sunday special for so many . Personally, I have sat, enjoyed, and been touched by these services and always leaving with a clear message in my heart. The standard has been set high for the next team.
As you all will know I have offered to take on leading the team who will be involved in the services on the first Sunday of the Month, All Age Services. To do this, there needs a group of people to decide what this will look and feel like. Then we can move on to planning the monthly services and decide who is doing what in the service.
Having talked with Dawn about All Age and its format, I have already several ideas zooming around my head, but I do need others to help turn them into an active, meaningful act of worship which will suit all ages.
Could you be part of this group ? Is God nudging you to be part of the group?
If you feel unable to be part of this group, I will ask you to pray that the right people step forward to take this role on within our church.
If you have any interest at all in being involved in All Age Services at Gleneagles then do speak to me either on a Sunday, by phone, by email or come round for a chat and a drink.
I hope to arrange a meeting towards the end of January.
Thanks in advance

Being present in Glenvale:
Would you like to be part of a group that meets with me regularly over the next few months, to begin asking the question ‘how can we be present in this new community in a way that nurtures new disciples’? Please let Dawn Airey know……
Tuesday prayer meeting at 11am, at the Vicarage. There is a zoom link provided each week for those who prefer to join the group virtually.
On Tuesday 1st Feb at 11am the prayer meeting will happen at Glenvale Park with a walk around the new estate, stopping to pray at various points. Followed by hot drinks at the Vicarage.
Training in Prophetic Ministry
We are planning on running an 8 week course called ‘Training in Prophetic Ministry’. The Gledhill’s and myself will run this after Easter. We had planned on starting at the end of January but on reflection feel end of April/early May is a better time. More information will come next term but it will be Tuesday evenings.
There are four Connect Groups (two evening and two daytime). Connect Groups are a great way to share life with a smaller group of people, study the bible and minster to one another. You can join any time.
Last year we recommended Simon Guillebaud’s ‘Choose Life’. This year we recommend Oswald Chambers ‘My Utmost for His Highest’.
All groups are running again.
Wholeness in Jesus/wellbeing:
We have our next wellbeing group starting Sunday 27th Feb – see information below. Please book with either Helen Downey or Jackie Brooks Cheesman.
Outreach to older people:
I’m aware that there are a number of people in the congregation who feel passionate about reaching out to older people. If you would like to start to talk about this please let me know and I will organise a time for us to get together in February.
Gleneagles Church Reading Group:
It’s not too late to join the church reading group and start reading next month’s book.
