Hello! …and welcome to Dalgety Parish Church

Sunday Services 2022

We have returned to our 10.30am Services which are both ‘in person’ and livestreamed.

A warm welcome awaits you – face to face or online.

Livestream available on https://www.youtube.com/DalgetyParishChurch

Just come along, sanistise your hands, and be aware of other people’s space around you.

Sanitiser used as you go in and as you leave

Family Services on the second Sunday each month at 4.00pm. A more informal, interactive service for ALL ages. Next one September 11th.

We continue to have our facebook live reflections (which you can see live on Dalgety Parish Church facebook page at 10am on a Tuesday)

Dalgety Parish Church and Covid – 19

There are no legal requirements – we simply ask you are aware of others around you and how much space they need to feel comfortable and safe.

Pray….

give thanks for being able to be in company with others again;

pray for sensitivity to so many who are fearful and need to be given space;

give thanks for the work – past, present and future – of so many to keep us safe, to give us hope, help us learn new ways of living with time for others, and ourselves;

Pray for humility as we step back into the world – to treat God’s creation, the nature around us with respect.

I continue to pray for you, each and every one. And God is with you, may you know his peace,

                                                                                                                                                Christine

Details of how to find us may be found on our Contacts page.

We are a mixed congregation, and we would love you to become part of that mix.

We are an active congregation who enjoy ‘liberal Bible-based’ worship, keeping our faith at the centre of our lives as best we can.  We aim to be able to laugh together, and cry together

We are also active in the community and further afield as you will discover through our worship, our magazine – WOW; and through the many invitations, extended to members and parish alike, to join in our events, to come to hear a variety of speakers, to join in ventures locally and as far away as Malawi!

We are active – however we are not perfect! We aim to do our best, to welcome everyone, of all denominations and none, no matter where anyone is on their faith journey, no matter race, background, gender, sexuality. No matter even what football or rugby team you support!

Please ask us about anything that is on your mind; come and share your thoughts, becoming part of this amazing, fun-loving, faith-filled team.

We look forward to the shared journey ahead.

Pastoral Matters

Pastoral Care: Members of the Ministry Team are available to help with any pastoral matters.

Baptism: The minister would be happy to discuss baptism with you.

Marriage: Couples who wish to be married in church should contact the minister as soon as possible. The minister is willing to consider conducting wedding services at other local venues.

Funerals: Following the death of a loved one, the minister may be contacted by the funeral directors or by the family. The minister is very willing to help with funerals for those in the parish, no matter whether they be church members or not.
