Todays call to worship … John 8:12
12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’
REPEAT ANNOUNCEMENT from the Rev Sam Campbell:
“In the light of this new virus strain, the Society Stewards and I have taken the difficult decision to close our churches until the Sunday the 7th of February 2021. We do this with regret, realising that many benefit from gathering together, but our main priority is to keep safe and protect all our members. I will of course be available for pastoral emergencies and will continue recording my services, made available on line and via telephone access”
(Details of telephone access are at the bottom of this page).

The Word became flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
