Depending upon the season of the year, extra services are also held, including -
- '2nd Sunday' - Services held June/ July/ Aug/ Sept in Holy Trinity Chapel, Lamington. Gentle, reflective, relaxing: take time out of the busy-busy to just be. These are Taize-style shorter services lasting for about 35-45 minutes. [n.b. months may be moved to begin in Aug 2018]
- 'Tidings of comfort & joy' - a quiet service of reflection held close to the longest night of the year: recognising that, while Christmas is a time of joy, there is also a shadow side. In amidst the tinsel, glitter, and lights, find space to remember loved ones lost, or put in God's hands difficult life situations
- School services - Easter, Harvest and Christmas. Joint schools services.
- Holy Week services, as we journey with Jesus through Palm Sunday, to Good Friday, and on to the Resurrection
Formal quarterly communion services are held on the first Sunday of the month in:
Other, simple acts of communion are also held during the year - watch for announcements.
For the most part, we aim to have 4 across our evening services through the year in:
Leadhills, Wanlockhead, on Maundy Thursday in the Parish Church, and at one of our 2nd Sunday services in Lamington
Home communion is available on request for the elderly, housebound, or ill - we are happy to 'extend the aisle'. An elder, representing the congregation, will usually be present.
