  • Church Focus: Denny Old Parish

    Our focus this week is on Denny Old Parish. The following is taken from their Mission Statement: "Our Mission is to promote the Good News of the Gospel in our Local Community and to be an outward looking, forward thinking, all-embracing Church community that provides a warm welcome to all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ." Dear God bless and encourage them as they seek to model your hospitality. Amen.

  • Toast Prayer

    A prayer from our recent all age community service from the Madoch Centre in collaboration with St Madoes and Kinfauns Parish Church. During the service we ate toast and remembered Jesus saying, 'I am the bread of life'. We thought about how Jesus helps sustains us like our breafast does and how it is important to make sure all are fed.

    Dear God,

    We thank you for toast

    that helps us hope,

    we thank you for grub

    that helps us love,

    we thank you that we can stuff our face,

    and share with others your amazing grace. Amen!

  • The Blessing of Forth Hope

    The Vine Trust's Forth Hope will be a blessing to so many people over the next few years. We give thanks for all those people who have contributed in so many different ways to make this voyage happen.

  • Moderator Derek

    We pray for Derek Browning, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 2017. 

    Derek has said, “During my year in office I will seek to explore and promote issues around hospitality and welcome...How we treat the stranger and the vulnerable person in our communities, particularly those with poor mental health, is key to how we express our Christian faith."

    We pray that he will be sustained and be an encouragement to the church.
