“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
Hope Church, Blackwood & Kirkmuirhill is a friendly congregation with a relaxed, family atmosphere. Visitors are made very welcome and there is opportunity after the service to chat with others over a cup of tea or coffee.
Our services usually last for around one hour and there is a children’s talk given every morning. The children leave for Sunday school half way through the service. We use the New International Version of the Bible and the main part of the service is taken up with explaining and applying the passage that has been read from the Bible. We sing psalms, hymns and modern worship songs.
We have a number of home groups that meet at various times of the week where we work through a bible study and have a time of prayer. We pray for a number of topics that have been shared in relation to the local context and further afield. These meetings are again very relaxed and are open to all.
