Knightswood Congregational Church is taking steps to twin with Moneyreagh Non-subscribing Presbyterian Church.
At our last Church Meeting it was agreed to take up the idea expressed at the CF Scotland Annual Assembly at Larkhall and seek out churches within the ecumenical setting that we could enter partnership with. It was suggested that churches could seek to 'twin' or create links with other churches of denominations with which they share something in common.
Moneyreagh is one such church in Northern Ireland which is part of the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church and the Right Rev Chris Wilson is minister. Chris is currently the Moderator of that historic and progressive denomination and we at Knightswood Congregational Church are delighted to announce that we have entered into the first formal steps of twinning with Moneyreagh.
Knightswood Congregational Church condemns the attacks which took place on London Bridge and Borough Market. It is reported that 7 people lost their lives with a further 48 injured.
We pray for all those who have lost their lives, those affected this monstrous tragedy and for a speedy recovery for those in hospital.Read more
We pray also for the emergency services, who once again swiftly responded with such professionalism and dedication. They have once again placed themselves in the forefront of danger, so that 'We' may be safe.
Shoulder to shoulder we stand with all people of all faiths, and of none in supporting all the victims of terrorism; reaffirming our conviction that those who would divide our communities with violence will never win.
We will simply never surrender!
We at Knightswood Congregational are proud to announce that we have taken the conscious and well considered decision to become a fully inclusive Church and at our Church Meeting we voted overwhelmingly to opt in for same sex marriage.Read more
We understand that for some people this may be difficult to accept and cope with but the feeling of the church was to embrace all God's People and not to reject any of them.
We are now going to approach the National Records of Scotland (General Registrar) and sort all the relevent legalities. no imminent weddings for the future are in the pipeline but we wanted you all to know same sex marriage will be available.
We would appreciate everyones support and pray that we will be the first of many to fully embrace all God's People.
