ACORN - Reaching out in this time of COVID

From a recent seminar by the 'Church without walls' team came the idea of ACORN

Acorn is a simple method of helping Christians to connect with the activity of God in their communities. Each of the letters of Acorn stands for one aspect of the method.

 

A is Ask Every day - we ask God is there someone God is nudging us to connect with outside of the church family

C is Call - we wait to hear the nudge of God, that might be immediate or it might be that as we are going for our daily walk, or whilst shopping the person comes to mind or in fact comes towards us

O is for Obey - we simply pick up the phone or our video technology and we call the person and say how are you?

R is Report - we join a group of no more than six Christians and we share confidentially the story of what happened

N is Notice  - in the group we notice God together

 

Martin Fair has recorded a short follow up message to the seminar which you can find using the following link:

Will you consider giving online to your local church ?

The impact of the global pandemic Coronavirus has forced us to close our church buildings and stop many of our usual activities, but the vital work of the Church goes on and is needed now, more than ever.

In communities like ours across Scotland and beyond, churches continue to provide ministry, practical support and loving care to people from all walks of life

Our ministers and pastoral support teams are reaching out by phone or online to provide pastoral care and spiritual support to people who need reassurance, hope and comfort. Many are supporting our key workers and their families as they continue to deliver vital services. They are caring for bereaved families amid challenging restrictions.

 

A donation from you can help support the Church's work in your area and ensure the Church is sufficiently equipped and resourced to face these challenging times.

Whether you are a church member who wants to continue to give your regular offering to your own congregation or a friend to the Church who is moved to contribute for the good of your community, we want to help you support the Church in whichever way you feel led.

Through the donation form on the Church of Scotland website, you may choose to give a one-off donation or donate every month. You can opt to direct your gift to a specific congregation or contribute to the general funds of the Church for use wherever the need is greatest.

Thank you for supporting the Church of Scotland in this time of unprecedented crisis.

Stirling Observer reports on our fabulous community work during COVID

The local newspaper, The Stirling Observer, carried a wonderful double page spread of news about all the work we've been doing as a united congregation during lockdown with our community of all ages.

The newly united church, formed from the union of Allan Park South and St Columbas Churches, have worked cohesively together in this work, with lots of plans being made for the rest of the year and next year.

Welcome to the newest member of our congregation

Congratulations to Helen Moody and Dave Sellick on the birth of their first son, James David Sellick on the 15th July 2020.

Baby James was a healthy 7lb 6oz, and Mum, Dad and baby are all doing well.
