What can you expect when you attend one of our services? Our services take about an hour and a half. They are structured as follows:
- We sing a selection of stanzas from the Scottish Metrical Psalter. We do not stand when singing.
- The minister opens with prayer. Everyone stands during every prayer.
- We read a portion from God’s Word. We use the King James Authorised Version .
- We sing some more stanzas from the Scottish Metrical Psalter.
- The minister reads the verse or portion from Scripture which he wishes to explain, usually from the portion read, and begins his sermon.
- The minister ends the sermon with prayer.
- We sing some more stanzas.
- The benediction: the minister blesses the congregation with the blessing from 2 Corinthians 13:14 .
Our Wednesday night prayer meetings are structured similarly, except that the minister will ask one of the men to pray. Prayer meetings are normally about an hour long.
