for 5th August 2020
'The Lord Speaks to Job'
This Sunday will be:
Walking on water -
Take courage, don't be afraid!
With Phase 3 of the Scottish Government's opening up of lockdown, we are now preparing to reopen to Public Worship.
A small group is now actively looking at how we do this safely in both churches, and in line with current advice.
We aim to re-open during September.
Please check back here regularly
The time will soon go in.
It is likely that the online services will also continue for those unable to come to the services.
*** THIS WEEK'S NEWS ***
St Quivox continues to thank the good people who help by cutting the grass outside Dalmilling Church
THANK YOU FROM ST Q!

A message from Rev John McCutcheon
Although as a church we won't be meeting for worship, the life of the church will still go on, albeit in a slightly different and a slightly reduced capacity.
For the duration, we will put a Midweek Reflection on the web site and a short Sunday service. These are both also available afterwards on our archived reflections page. (via This Week's Worship tab)
You may also like to look at the weekly service provided by The Vine at Home
There are also many good web sites for daily devotionals and daily Bible Readings.
For example, Bible gateway have a load of resources for use: www.Biblegateway.com
I use that as an example, there are plenty more out there!!!!
If you need pastoral support I am still available on 01292 861641 and at JMcCutcheon@churchofscotland.org.uk
If you know people either isolating themselves or are lonely and on their own because friends or family are not able to visit just now, again let myself or someone from the church know and we can get in touch with them. We also still appreciate prayer requests for the prayer list. Please contact me directly.
These are demanding times and we have to adapt as best as we can.
But be assured Ayr St Quivox is determined to carry on serving the parish and the wider community as we always have done, but for the next wee while we will be doing it in a different way.
Finally, if there is anything that you think we could be doing to help, if you are needing groceries brought in, if we can help, let us know.
Stay safe, take good care of yourselves and one another.
It won’t be long till “this too shall pass”
and a sense of normality can once again become the norm.
The church buildings at Auchincruive and Dalmilling
may be closed
due to the current situation,
GOD IS STILL HERE WITH US ALL
THE CHURCH IS STILL HERE FOR US ALL
AND WE ARE STILL HERE
and we look forward to re-opening soon.
Whether you arrive here regularly,
or if you are 'just visiting,'
you are most welcome.
Stay awhile, enjoy the Sunday service, read some of the reflections,
and let the words and God's Peace enfold you.
Please contact the Minister, Rev John McCutcheon for up to date advice on arranging ceremonies, to find out more about church, or if you are thinking of joining the church.
