Hymns at Home

Hymn CH4: 467 - All My Days

All my days I will sing this song of gladness,
Give my praise to the Fountain of delights;
For in my helplessness You heard my cry,
And waves of mercy poured down on my life.

I will trust in the cross of my Redeemer,
I will sing of the blood that never fails;
Of sins forgiven, of conscience cleansed,
Of death defeated and life without end.

Beautiful Saviour, Wonderful Counsellor,
Clothed in majesty, Lord of history,
You’re the Way, the Truth, the Life.
Star of the Morning, glorious in holiness,
You’re the Risen One, heaven’s Champion
And You reign, You reign over all.

I long to be where the praise is never-ending,
Yearn to dwell where the glory never fades;
Where countless worshippers will share one song,
And cries of ‘worthy’ will honour the Lamb!

Beautiful Saviour, Wonderful Counsellor,
Clothed in majesty, Lord of history,
You’re the Way, the Truth, the Life.
Star of the Morning, glorious in holiness,
You’re the Risen One, heaven’s Champion
And You reign, You reign over all.

'Pebble Path of Hope'

  • 11 June 2020
  • liz.dyer

Bring cheer to our communities and help us all stay connected by adding to a focal point of brightly painted pebbles leading from our churches at West Kirk and at Polbeth Harwood into the main streets of our villages along our 'PEBBLE PATH OF HOPE'.

As you can see from the picture, your pebble doesn't have to be large but should be bright and have a wee message or image. 

All you need to do is paint your pebble and take it to the church to add to those already starting to form our path. Anyone can take part.

Let's see how far into the village our path can stretch....

Special Pentecost Service

  • 30 May 2020
  • liz.dyer

Congregations across Scotland will be joining together-remotely-for a special Pentecost service on 31 May.

Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair will be hosting the service which will include worship, prayers, music, a sermon, Bible readings, and will close with the Moderator’s wife Mrs Elaine Fair singing The Blessing.

The Moderator is encouraging congregations and people of faith across Scotland, and beyond, to join together in worship as a whole church.

“Pentecost Sunday is an opportunity to rejoice in the birth of the church and to celebrate our togetherness as a church family,” Dr Fair said.

“It was the coming of the Spirit upon those first disciples that brought the church to life, with power and passion - and the same Spirit unites us still.”

“Even though we cannot be together in person, we can be together in spirit. We can share in the same worship, pray together using the same words, be inspired together by the same Bible verses and affirm our unity as the body of Christ here on earth.

"Ordinarily, the worship of the Church is offered locally, rightly so. But it seems to me that in these present circumstances there is merit in giving over one Sunday to come together.”

The Moderator will open the service and invite you to worship. Others taking part will include: Rev Fran Henderson, minister in Shetland; Rev William Boyle of Port Glasgow, New Parish Church; Ann Lyall, DCS from Glasgow; and Rev Ruth Morrison, of Clydebank Waterfront.

The musical offerings will feature hymns and songs from across Scotland including:

  • Rev Jonathan Fleming of St. John’s Largs and Cumbrae and his family
  • the worship team at Fullarton Parish Church
  • junior choir members from Aberfeldy
  • the worship team at Chryston Church of Scotland

The service will be recorded in advance and will be available for viewing on the church website and Facebook pageat 10am on Sunday 31 May.
