Christmas News 2020

posted by St.Serfs Tullibody-Clacks


Christmas is not cancelled!

This year we will all be doing things differently. Some of the
things we normally do will be done in a more limited way than
usual. Others will not be done at all. But Christmas is not
cancelled.
For years we have all said, “Christmas is too commercialised.”
We have prayed that there would be less emphasis on buying
and getting. We have said we should pay more attention to
the one who was laid in a manger because there was no room
in the inn. If there are fewer things this year, although we may
miss them, maybe in a surprising way our prayers have been
answered, at least in part. Some things have been stripped
away but the truth remains that God has come to us in Jesus
Christ.

May God bless you this Christmas. Drew Barrie

Services in the Church building

posted 17 Jul 2020, 03:23 by St.Serfs Tullibody-Clacks

We are now able to hold services in the church building and these will start on Sunday 26th July


10.00am & 12.00noon

There are a number of restrictions on what we can do and for example for the time being we will not be able to sing hymns.  We ask you to wear a face mask and to follow government advice www.gov.scot   

The number of people we can have in the building is also limited so we will be holding two services.  The second service will be a repeat of the first one so please only come to one of them!

We appreciate that some people either can’t or don’t want to come to the church building.  We will also have an on line service every Sunday at 2pm.  We also have an on line service every Thursday (recordings are available on the Services and Meetings page).

May 2020 update from the minister

posted 1 Jun 2020, 03:57 by St.Serfs Tullibody-Clacks   [ updated 1 Jun 2020, 04:00 ]

The congregation have been given a new banner which is now hanging in our church building. When Noah and his family came out of their confinement in the Ark, God told them that the rainbow in the sky was a reminder of his power to save and of his goodness and mercy. The rainbow is a symbol of God’s love and his promise of a new beginning and a better world. You can read about Noah and the rainbow in Genesis chapters 6-8.
It is a strange time. We are all having to cope both with the fear of Coronavirus and with the problems of isolation and often loneliness. There is the frustration of not being able to do the things we want to do or to see the people we want to see. ‘Lockdown’ was quickly followed by Palm Sunday, Holy week and Easter Sunday. The celebrations surrounding Easter were very different this year. We are told that Jesus prayed in Gethsemane, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” He went through the emotional mill in Gethsemane. Jesus’ followers deserted him and he died alone on the cross. He was very much alone. He even felt that God the Father had abandoned him. As we all know Jesus the Son of God went to the cross as God’s plan to bring forgiveness and salvation. Jesus was however fully human and it would be wrong to think he did not experience the things that all people feel. It would be wrong to think he did not experience the things that you and I are feeling right now. But the cross was not the end. On the third day he rose to life. After that, over a period of 40 days, he appeared to various people.
On Easter Sunday he spoke to Mary Magdalene outside his tomb. That evening he joined two people walking from Jerusalem to the nearby village of Emmaus. When they realised it was Jesus they ran back to Jerusalem to tell the disciples. The disciples told them that Jesus had appeared to Peter. Then Jesus came and stood among them. A week later he appeared to the disciples again while they were hiding behind closed doors in fear. After some of the disciples had gone fishing, Jesus spoke to them. He appeared to a large crowd on one occasion. The risen Jesus Christ in all his power and glory comes to all who will receive him. The human Jesus who has endured loneliness, fear and suffering comes to us. They are one and the same. There is only one Jesus Christ. Jesus took our humanity and redeemed us, he is the eternal and unchanging God, he was dead and now lives forever. He comes to all who seek him. Christ knows exactly how you feel – for he is God and knows all things. Christ understands exactly how you feel – for he has experienced the human condition. He promises all who truly seek him that they will find him, and he promises to all who find him the peace that only he can give. May you know he is with you today.

Drew Barrie.
