Sunday 29 May 2022

On Sunday we meet for the Celebration of the Lord’s Supper at 9.30am in Bowden Kirk and 11.00am in Melrose Church. Joining us will be Tim and Carol Derbyshire from the Australian-based charity Hope From Above (HFA). They are staying with Ken and Anna Swinton in Bowden. HFA helps bring the gospel to unreached and inaccessible people groups, who cannot access the good news by their own initiative today. They do this by providing aviation and technical support to pioneering ministries. There will be a retiring offering in support of HFA. Melrose services are livestreamed, and you can join us on our church website or Facebook page or watch the recording thereafter. The order of service is attached. There will be no worship podcast this week.
