Special Pentecost Service

  • 30 May 2020

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.

Hymns at Home

CH4 351, played by Catriona Lachlan
Jesus’ hands were kind hands, doing good to all,
Healing pain and sickness, blessing children small;
Washing tired feet, and saving those who fall;
Jesus’ hands were kind hands, doing good to all.
Take my hands, Lord Jesus, let them work for you,
Make them strong and gentle, kind in all I do;
Let me watch you, Jesus, till I’m gentle too,
Till my hands are kind hands, quick to work for you.

Hymns at Home

CH4 562:1-3
Through the love of God, our Saviour,
All will be well.
Free and changeless is his favour;
All, all is well.
Precious is the blood that healed us,
Perfect is the grace that sealed us,
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us;
All must be well.

Though we pass through tribulations,
All will be well.
Ours is such a full salvation,
All, all is well.
Happy still in God confiding,
Fruitful, if in Christ abiding,
Holy, through the Spirit’s guiding;
All must be well.

We expect a bright tomorrow;
All will be well.
Faith can sing through days of sorrow,
‘All, all is well.’
On our Father’s love relying,
Jesus every need supplying,
In our living, in our dying,
All must be well.
