Ministers Message

As I write this,it is difficult to believe we are at the end of another year, and another decade. But as if we need any reminders that the year is drawing to a close, the songs played as we shop are now almost entirely Christmas songs and as well as our fellow shoppers, we now have to navigate our way round giant reindeer, Christmas trees and suchlike.

As the year draws to a close, we often take time to look back and reflect the year that has just passed, and this year has been a year of highs and lows, challenges and opportunities for us as individuals, the local church family, and national church.

We have shared the joy of welcoming new life into the church and shared the pain as we have said goodbye to loved ones.
We have witnessed and shared changes in and around the day to day life of the church here in Newton Mearns.
We have seen the beginnings of the implementation of the radical action plan agreed at General Assembly earlier this year.
That will affect every church in the grouping and beyond.

None of us know what lies ahead in 2020 in either our own personal lives or in the life of the local and national church, and just as we have seen this past year, there will be times of joy and sorrow, we will experience laughter and tears, and we will share the good and the not so good.

And it this last part that I wish to focus on as we look forward to 2020, that we, as a community of faith, share these experiences so that whatever we go through as individuals, I hope and pray that the sense of community, belonging and togetherness will continue to grow and develop next year and that every one of us feels safe, secure and loved as part of God’s family here in Newton Mearns.

I pray that over this Christmas season, you will sense the joy, peace, love and hope that came into the world through the birth of Christ Jesus, and that you will be able to join us in praising and worshipping God for the gift of his son to us, at one of our services over the Christmas period details of which are listed in What's On .

And on behalf of myself and my family, we would all like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year when it comes.

Stuart
