On 15th August 2021 there will be an act of worship at 11 am in Marketgait conducted by Jenny Easson; the Rev Nick Baker has mailed a letter to provide guidance and information about this. If you hear of anyone who has not received this letter please contact Nick as soon as possible; also consult him or a Church Steward about any uncertainties. The Church Council (18th August) will include next Sunday’s experience as part of our discussions and wider decision-making.
The Dundee Church Council has decided that, for various reasons including the current “Covid spike”, physical gathering in Marketgait will not be before August. Worshipping physically together has now resumed in Perth, Arbroath, and Montrose – some Blairgowrie friends have travelled to Perth and thought is being given about a more local venue.
Are you and your church ready for The Big Church Sing Easter Special? At 4pm on Sunday April 2021 – Easter Sunday, you can be part of The Big Church Sing Easter Special and raise your voices along with incredible musicians like Graham Kendrick, Keith and Kristyn Getty, Noel Robinson, Celtic Worship and our very own National Methodist Choir. All performing to support All We Can’s work with people in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
Join in as we re-tell the Easter story and celebrate resurrection together – with contributions from CBeebies actor Joanna Adyinka Burford and Wakefield Methodist School – you won’t want to miss it!
Immediately afterwards (at around 5pm), join us live on All We Can’s Facebook and YouTube pages for the BIG Easter Sunday Party LIVE! There will be fun, laughter, games, and bring your own snacks as we celebrate the good news of Easter together.
We are posting a short reflective service (about half an hour) to our YouTube channel each day in Holy Week, so we can travel together towards Easter despite still being apart. It will be available from 9 am, so you can watch whenever is convenient for you.
From Sunday 6th September, the circuit will produce its own pre-recorded Circuit Service for online viewing. We intend to produce versions for those who cannot access it online. If you would like a paper script, a DVD or CD, please contact Jenny or Sue MJ or email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
The Circuit Leadership Team met on Thursday to consider worship in the circuit.
From Sunday 6th September, there will be a weekly pre-recorded Circuit Service available from 11am on YouTube. It is intended that, especially for those not able to access or wishing to use IT, there will be a full transcript of the Service, plus an audio CD, and maybe even a DVD. (Ideally, these will be ready in advance.)
ThePreachers’ Meeting this Thursday will discuss practicalities and implications, their availability and technical possibilities.
As it is hoped that there will be a range of participants (eg for Bible readings), volunteers will be welcome – please let Nik Wooller or Sue Marshall-Jennings know if you feel able to contribute in any way:
Contact details are Nik: 01250 870899; email@example.com; Sue: 01334 854257; firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be an initial trial for a month – it is hoped to make the Service as well produced as possible but no doubt learning to make it even better. Nik Wooller has offered to compile and edit the parts of the Service.
