The church is the people not the building, so while we cannot come together in one space to worship we can be together in prayer, and through contacting one another by phone, text or email, Facebook etc.
Over the next few days we will be putting together a Facebook presence from Oban and Kilmore, while also keeping in contact through email. Please pass on these contacts to as many people as possible as they come out.
I have attached the Order of Service we would have been using this Sunday March 22. So at 10.30am let us all say together the Lord’s Prayer – and thus sense our togetherness.
Further, on Sunday the Moderator has joined with other Christian leaders to call for a Day of Prayer. Part of this is an invitation for us all to light a candle at 7pm to signal that the light shines and that the darkness has never extinguished it.
Daily Epilogue from Rev Fiona Reynolds
We offer prayers for ourselves and the world… a time of stillness in the storm.

Church of Scotland Daily Prayer (Facebook)
Each day the Church of Scotland posts a short prayer for the day on their Facebook page. Search “Church of Scotland” on Facebook or visit the page directly at:
Listening to Hymns (online)
The Church of Scotland recently undertook a project to record, in part, each of the hymns in the purple CH4 hymnbook. With recordings of church choirs, bands and soloists from around Scotland, they have compiled a database of audio files available to listen to free of charge on the Church of Scotland website. If you feel you would like a reminder of how a hymn goes, this is the webpage to visit: https://music.churchofscotland.org.uk
Please feel free to phone me at any time with suggestions of methods of contact, suggestions of those who would appreciate a phone call from the minister etc.

Come I this day to the Father,
come I this day to the Son,
come I this day to the Spirit powerful;
come I this day with God,
come I this day with Christ,
come I this day with the Spirit of kindly balm.
God, and Spirit, and Jesus,
from the crown of my head,
to the soles of my feet;
come I with my reputation,
come I with my testimony,
Come I to Thee, Jesu;
Jesu, shelter me.
