We aim to work positively with other church and fait communities. We strive to be a friendly and welcoming church for all.

Greetings from Bonnyrigg Church,
 
What a week it has been, with cloud, rain & wind arriving and departing on a daily basis, then we get a glimpse of the sun, but not of course for two days together. I’m sure many of you will be thinking what next. 
 
Scotland has such beautiful scenery, lush and green valleys and impressive mountain & hill ranges. Our varied weather contributes to this, so we should be grateful for it, but it is hard when the rain is running down the back of your neck.   
 
Further afield the tragic explosion in Libya reminds us how precious life is and how it can change in the blink of an eye. Please pray for everyone affected by this terrible event, also for those in the Aberdeen area who are now facing new restrictions to try to stem the spread of COVID locally. 
 
My thanks to everyone who has taken the time to complete and return a copy of the survey form,  either on line or on paper. We are grateful for your thoughts and advise. This will help us greatly as we contemplate the next steps for our church during & beyond this pandemic. 
 
Please continue pray for our Manse family, as they return from their break, I’m sure it has gone past too quickly. May they be refreshed and ready to face the next challenges that come our way. 
 
We pray that you continue to connect with us through the weekly service, finding comfort and support. 
 
We are grateful to the Rev Martin Fair, the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, for his pulpit supply. We pray that you sense the presence of the Holy Spirit as we join together for worship
