Sunday Service - Daniel 12

Of all the Old Testament Minor Prophets Daniel is perhaps the most well known. Dramatic instances such as the lion’s den and the great fire have captured people’s imagination throughout the years yet there is much more to his story. Set at a time when Israel was exiled they had to struggle with keeping their culture alive as well wrestling with questions like what it meant to worship God in an unfriendly culture. We have much to learn from this story so over the next couple of months we are going to go through the book.


Everyone is warmly welcome to our Sunday services.

Our worship style could be described as ‘informal contemporary’, with elements of ‘traditional’ thrown in for good measure.

We recognise the importance of getting to know each other and do this both during the ‘welcome’ and after services over tea and coffee.

Prayer after the service

There are times when people need specific prayer for specific situations and do not with to ask in the ‘prayers for others’.

Norman is available for anyone who wishes prayer after the service. Please sit down at the front if you would like this.

INFORMATION FOR VISITORS

Members of the Welcome Team will be pleased to provide details of any of the topics below – they are easily recognised by their name badges.

We provide crèche facilities during the morning service.

Feel free to sit anywhere within the congregation as there are no personalised seats.

Toilets are located in the vestibule at the back of the church and also just through the door on the pulpit side of the church.

We have an induction hearing loop system, so if you need to use it please switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position for best reception.

We can arrange transport home if you need it.

Want to know more? Should you wish more information on who we are and how we live out our calling to be the church in Granton, speak to any of our welcome team or visit our website, where you can also sign up to receive our weekly eBulletin.

Wednesday Home Group @ home of Barbra Gordon,
Jul 4 @ 19:30 – 20:30
Wednesday Home Group @ home of Barbra Gordon,  | Edinburgh | United Kingdom

What is a Home group?

A Home group is a small group of people from the Church who meet regularly, usually at someone’s home. These groups provide the opportunity to read and discuss the Bible together, to pray together and get to know one another.

Why go to a Home group?
There are 2 main reasons: (1) to study the bible and discuss issues that come from that, a small group environment is very helpful; (2) a small group provides an opportunity to meet and to get to know a more manageable number of people than you might meet at a Sunday service. That means there is a chance to get to know a group of people well, and therefore to be able to support and encourage them, and to be supported and encouraged.

What role do Home groups play within the Church?

In the book of Ephesians the Church is described as a body with a structure, ‘held together by every supporting ligament [which] grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.’ (Ephesians 4:16). We believe that Home groups play an important part in encouraging godliness, and building and developing relationships, within the context of good bible study, that strengthen the Church and help it to function as it ought.

What if I can’t get there every time?
Not everyone can get to a home group every time it meets. However, by going when you can, you will get to know others in the group who will be able to support you and pray for you when you can’t be there.

Which of the groups should I join?
We usually recommend that you try the group nearest to where you live. It may be that you visit other home groups to see where you feel the most comfortable. There are several groups meeting in and around Farnham on Wednesday evenings and one group which meets in Weybourne on a Tuesday evening.

What will be expected of me?
Our aim is to get to know you and to give you time to get to know the rest of your group. Some people are very used to this sort of environment, but it may be new to others. When you feel able to, you can contribute as much or as little as you like.

We have 2 Home Groups at the moment.
One meets on the first and 3rd Wednesday of each month at the home of Barbra Gordon, 2 Granton Place – email ian.moir@granton.org.uk for information

The other meets on the last Thursday of each month at the home of Linda & Derek Young, 110 Silverknowes Road – email linda@granton.org.uk for information
