New Year

Dear Congregation Member,
As we reflect about the New Year, this week’s worship service is about our journey through life. And that made me think back over 2020. What a journey it’s been!
But we’ve also had some actual journeys during lockdown! 
To stay fit and make the most of a strange year, we had 2 challenges:

•    The July Challenge – we challenged people to count their steps throughout July, 
so we could see how many people could virtually walk/run/cycle to Aberdour Beach and back (where we usually have our annual picnic).

Here is a summary of our achievement:

WK-PH July Challenge    
Number of Participants   - 52
Total Steps Counted       -  4,383,855
Average Steps (each - not everyone recorded steps)   -  84,304,90
Total Miles Recorded      - 5,525
Average Miles (each)     - 106.25
PH to Aberdour (rtn) - miles   - 52
Total Round Trips – PH – Aberdour - PH   - 106
That’s 106 people we were able to get to and from Aberdour through our collective walking / cycling / running -  just fantastic!!

Then people were invited to guess how many round tips were made, 
and Nicola Young was closest with her guess of 90.
 
•    Fit for faith – in October Henro challenged me to walk with him for at least 3 miles every single day, 
and he asked people to sponsor our walks. 
We managed walking quite a bit more than that, and in the end raised £1005.22 for West Kirk & Polbeth Harwood.

Thanks so much for all your support!
We don’t know where 2021 will take us, but let’s make sure that we never let go of God’s hand. 
May God bless you all,

Nanda

Due to level of Covid 19 restrictions we are currently under, there will be no Sunday morning worship in Church during the month of January 2021. 
This will be reviewed later in the month and any changes will be advised.
Remember to join us for our online worship on Sunday morning and Midweek message on Wednesday afternoon.

Please all stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you all back to church once conditions allow.

You will all probably be aware that the Scottish Government has advised that people should minimise social contact by avoiding crowded areas and large gatherings, including religious congregations, and smaller gatherings, listing areas which were of concern.

Notices will be put up outside the Church as well as on our website and Facebook page. However, it would be very helpful if you would let people know who may not see these notices or notifications.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any kind of support during this time.

"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)

God bless,

Nanda

March 2020 Letter

Dear Congregations,

My gran once said to me, 'joining the journey of Jesus is a starting line, not a finish line.' What did she mean by these words? Well, I think she meant the faith journey leads us into a lifetime of contemplation and action; a lifetime of growing spiritually. So here is a question for each of you - In what ways has the journey of faith challenged you to grow as a Christian? The answer to the above question will be different for each of us in every season of our life, for the joy of the faith journey is that it is forever changing us. the challenges that come to us in our twenties and thirties will be different to those that we meet in our forties, fifties and sixties... and in every decade of our life.

Just recently I have been having to make a lot of extra journeys for various reasons. But the thing about journeys is that they are never quite the same; there is always something new to see, something new to notice. There is always something that has changed on a journey no matter how many times you have driven or walked that same route before. Things that you need to be aware of and take notice of because they can have an effect on the outcome of our journeys.

on our journey through Lent, 26th February to 9th April, these 40 days, we will journey with Jesus as he travels towards Jerusalem with his disciples, teaching them as he goes and then as he faces rejection, is arrested, tried,convicted and executed and then the joy of Easter morning.

We travel this journey together and as we do, we look for new things that we are suddenly aware of, things that we might not have noticed before or heard before, things that speak to us again of the grace of God. The truth for us is that at the end of the journey we will be transformed; transformed by opening our eyes again to the wonder of our God, our God who lived and died for us - for you, for me and asks us that we journey with him.

Shalom

Alison.
