Worship at Rutherglen URC
11am Morning Worship
'TEA Time' - our worship follows a pattern of: Telling the story - Exploring the story - and Affirming the story. In order to do this in creative ways the service can include drama, monologues and activities but we do so within a fairly traditional format. We seek to use inclusive and easily understood language within our worship.
There are activity groups for pre-school and primary school children each Sunday morning. The children gather in the church at 11am before going through to the halls during the service to explore the theme in an age appropriate way. Later in the service they rejoin the adults in worship and show the adults what they have been doing as together we affirm the story.
First Sunday of the Month
10.00am Early Communion (a short less formal Communion)
[see the calendar for the dates of these as they are not every month]
11.00am Morning Worship followed by a more formal
communion service. There is a short gap between the Service and Communion to allow anyone who wishes to leave at that point in time to do so.
All are welcome to share in communion as we share the bread and 'wine' in a 'meal of rememberance and thanksgiving'. The bread is gluten free and is eaten when received. The 'wine' (which is grape juice) is retained and all take at the same time when invited to do so.
Fourth Sunday of the Month our service is sometimes followed by a ’Souper Sunday’ (a soup lunch in the hall organised by the fund-raisers). [see the calendar for the dates of these]
This is held on the Sunday nearest the 19th of May.
This service commences at 10.45am and we hold a two minute silence at 11am. We are joined in this service by members and leaders of the Guiding and Scouting movements.
On Christmas Eve there is an all-age 'Twi-light Service at 6.30pm and a 'Watch-night Service at 11.30pm.
On Christmas Day there is an all-age service at 10.30am.
