Starting today and continuing until Saturday 22 August, church members across Scotland and beyond will be taking part in a Week of Prayer.
During this time you’ll be able to watch a morning reflection everyday from 8am on the Church of Scotland’s website or social media channels (and by 10am on the Wellington website). For those without internet, recordings of the reflections will be available by phoning 03333409200.
Each evening you are also invited to take part in a 30-minute videoconferencing event, which will include contributions from ministers, youth workers and ecumenical partners including Archbishop Leo Cushley of the Roman Catholic Church and Bishop Mark Strange of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
These are also being filmed and will be made available on the Church of Scotland YouTube channel for those who were unable to attend them in person or who would like to re-watch the sessions. Please check the Church of Scotland website for further info.
Today’s morning prayer and reflection is based on Psalm 46. Click on the picture below for the video to start.
