CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 19 August 2020
At the moment church services are taking place on Sunday at 10am with all precautions taken for social distancing. (You must wear a mask and use antibacterial gel when you arrive and leave.) This means our numbers are limited and different people are invited to attend each week. If you wish to be included in our worship please email the rector at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have a Facebook page here .
There is a service of Compline which you may like to watch and join in here.
At St Fillan’s we are seeking to live out the Christian life and to share that life with others; through our worship, our social events, and our involvement with the local community. We hope to be a welcoming and inclusive community: a place where all will find prayer, song, silence and sacrament; and a safe place for all, irrespective of age, race, gender, tradition, sexuality, disability or health. Old and young and all in between are most welcome. We use a Loop System on Sunday for those who are hard of hearing.
Our rector is The Rev’d Canon Ruth Innes. We also enjoy the occasional assistance of our retired Non-Stipendiary priest Rev Anthea Griggs.
St. Fillan’s buildings are well used during the week by a variety of local community groups, and it means a lot to the congregation that we can serve the local community in this way. The hall is available for occasional use at various times. Enquiries to the booking address in Contacts.
The Sung Eucharist is at 10.00am each Sunday morning.
On Wednesday mornings we have a Eucharist at 10.00am in the chapel followed by coffee in the rectory. (At the present time this is not happening because the chapel isn’t big enough to take any number of people.)
St Fillan’s is a Fair Trade Church. We use fairly traded products for our refreshments after services. We have a fair trade volunteer in our congregation, through whom a range of foodstuffs and gifts may be bought. There is an occasional stall in church.
We support a range of charities at home and abroad. Several members of the congregation are actively involved with Christian Aid, L’Arche, the Open Door Project in Morningside, Enable Scotland, Malawi Association for Christian Support, and Rainforest Saver.
