During this phase of the Coronavirus outbreak, along with the rest of the Scottish Episcopal Church and many other denominations, St Peter’s has suspended its usual pattern of worship.
Each week this page will have different prayers, thoughts and reflections added for personal use.
Easter Sunday: All being well, we look forward to meeting our new Rector, Rev Nick Wills. He will be leading a service for Easter Day that will be available to watch on YouTube. The service will start at 10.45am, and a link for you to join this will be added on Saturday night.
As we move through Holy Week, please find below information to aid your devotions, prayers and reflections for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Holy Saturday will be added on Friday night.
10th April: Good Friday: Prepared by The Very Revd Jim Mein, our Interim Pastor, these meditations are designed to be read between 12 Noon and 3pm. The meditation follows the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life. Each section contains a Hymn, Reflection and a Prayer, followed by some silence. The approximate times of when each section would have begun are given. Two documents are attached for this. One has Jim’s reflections and prayers. The second has the text of the Bible Readings and Hymns. If you have your own Bible and Hymnbook, you do not need the second one.
2.30pm: Bishop Anne Dyer, Bishop of Aberdeen, will lead a Passion Narrative and the Veneration of the Cross. Being broadcast at 2.30pm, it will also be available to watch after it is finished: http://www.scotland.anglican.org/broadcast-sunday-worship/
