Prayer Stations

HH

Few people would argue that politics in this country has become polarised in the last few years. In addition, the way people discuss political matters has, more recently, become increasingly personal and divisive. Consequently, in many communities groups of people are feeling isolated and vilified. The Session of Kintore Parish Church are particularly concerned about this situation and would like to help people consider ways of discussing politics more respectfully.

For some time now, Kintore Parish Church has been open between 9:30am and 4:00pm on Wednesdays and Sundays to provide a quiet space for anyone who wishes to spend time with God. From the end of May, there will also be four prayer stations set up in the church to help focus thoughts on respecting others, particularly those with differing opinions. Each station will have a different focus; Welcome, Unity and Diversity, Respect and Reconciliation with a variety of materials to stimulate thought aimed at helping diffuse bad feeling.

Kintore Parish Church extends a warm welcome to anyone who wishes to make use of these prayer stations, which may also be used for non-religious contemplation, there is no need to book and there is no charge.


Messy Church

Messy Church takes place on the 3rd Sunday of every month (except July and August, when we take a summer break). It usually runs from 3.30 to 5.30 pm and supper is provided. Children and families of all ages are welcome.

The programme for the year is here


Knitting for Nkhoma Hospital

Since the start of 2019, we have been able to send 7 banana boxes full of knitting, all lovingly produced by many willing hands in our community, to support the nursing staff working in Nkhoma hospital in Malawi. They send each new-born baby home with a knitted jumper and hat and give away around 150 sets of garments a month to their young patients on discharge so they need a good supply of clothes. There are approximately 50 garments per banana box so our knitters have been busy. We are truly blessed by having so many people who are so generous with their time and their talents.

Knitting patterns for jumpers, hats, dolls and teddies are available on the notice board in the Session Room in the church as well as on this site (below). Completed garments can be handed in to church or call 07974 938315, if you would like them collected. We would also be glad to receive any knitting wool surplus to your requirements to pass on to our keenest knitters.

The knitting patterns can be downloaded from these links:
