       A Service for Remembering

Sunday 6th December is the second Sunday of Advent – a time of preparation for the celebration of Christmas – usually a time of general ‘good cheer’, parties and family celebrations. 

Yet, for many people, this time of year can be very difficult, particularly where families are separated across the world, or where bereavement means facing this time of festivity without the love and companionship of someone they have shared it with in the past.

on Sunday – 6th December – at 11:00am – Colston Wellpark Church will hold a Service for Remembering This will be a time for reflection and for remembering those who will not be with us to celebrate Christmas.

 If, through bereavement or separation, you find this to be a difficult time of year, please join us on 6th December. 

Please note that due to the current Covid-19 tier 4 restrictions the arrangements for this year’s ‘Service for Remembering’ are different from those of previous years:

Firstly: the service will be in the morning at 11:00am

Secondly: attendance at this service will be restricted to a total of 20 people, and attendance is also restricted to those living within the Glasgow local authority area. You are, therefore, requested not to attend if you live out with Glasgow.

If you do live in Glasgow and wish to attend you must book a space either by email, text, or phone (leslie.grieve@gmail.com   Tel 07813255052)

If, for whatever reason you do not feel able to attend, please note that a recording of the service will be posted on the Church Facebook page <@ColstonWellparkParishChurch>  

Stars for Remembering:  We intend to hang stars on our ‘Christmas Tree for Remembering’ in advance of the service this year, so, whether you are at the service or not, if you would like a star with a loved one’s name on it hung on the tree please let us know.  And  if you would like a specific message written on a star please send this to us either by text or email by Friday 4th December.   (mobile 07813255052  email <leslie.grieve@gmail.com>)   A candle will also be lit for your loved one during the service
