VACANCY - Transition Minister
We are a Church in Linkage with Old Monkland Parish Church.
We have been in Vacancy for a while and are keen to welome just the right Transition Minister.
Recent job adverts and interview processes have not been successful, but we know God has a plan and the right person is being guided to us. Any interest in this position should be directed toward Church of Scotland, Edinburgh. Feel free also to join us in Sunday worship each week at 11.30am (Old Monkland Church is at 10am) and meet the congregation.
In a world that has it's fair share of ups and downs, from bereavement, loneliness, health, sadness etc, to the happy times too, we are no different to anyone else. We seek to get through it all by relying in a simple faith, by being guided by Jesus Christ and the friendship of others. We don't have all the answers and are at different stages in understanding our faith. You don't need to be a Christian to join us, you may be sceptical, no previous knowledge or simply have a desire to have something in your life that you feel is missing. Faith is simply a journey of trust that God holds true to His love and will stay with us through everything that life can throw at us. All are welcome without exception. God's love is unconditional so take a deep breath and don't be put off by the big brown doors. You will be assured a warm welcome, come in and take a seat anywhere you please! And find out the other things we are up to.
On a Sunday we have a Team who welcome everyone to church. We believe this is important and provides a lovely welcome to those attending the service. Would you like to be part of this Team? Our Team at present is quite small and there are some Sundays where there is maybe only two or three people available. Also over the next few months due to holidays this will happen more often.
If you would like to become part of Our Welcome Team please speak to Olive, our Session Clerk. you would not need to be available EVERY Sunday s there is a rota oer a five week period.
The Gospel proclaims that it is the responsibility of everyone within the fellowship of the Church to prevent harm, be it physical, sexual or emotional, and we will always seek to reduce risk.
The Church's commitment to safeguarding reminds us that God cares passionately about the welfare and well-being of all people.
