Other services:
Depending upon the season of the year, extra services are also held, including -
  • '2nd Sunday' - Summer services held June/ July/ Aug/ Sept in Holy Trinity Chapel, Lamington.  Gentle, reflective, relaxing: take time out of the busy-busy to just be.  These are Taize-style shorter services lasting for about 35-45 minutes.
  • 'Tidings of comfort & joy' - a quiet service of reflection held close to, or on, the longest night of the year: recognising that, while Christmas is a time of joy, there is also a shadow side.  In amidst the tinsel, glitter, and lights, find space to remember loved ones lost, or put in God's hands difficult life situations
  • School services - Harvest and Christmas. Joint schools services.
  • Holy Week services, as we journey with Jesus through Palm Sunday, to Good Friday, and on to the Resurrection  
Communion:
Formal quarterly communion services are held on the first Sunday of the month in:
March
June
September
December

Other, simple acts of communion are also held during the year - watch for announcements.
For the most part, we aim to have 4 across our evening services through the year in:
Leadhills, Wanlockhead, on Maundy Thursday in the Parish Church, and at one of our 2nd Sunday services in Lamington

Home communion is available on request for the elderly, housebound, or ill - we are happy to 'extend the aisle'. An elder, representing the congregation, will usually be present.
