The service for Pentecost 20 is based around readings from The first letter of Paul to the Thessalonians: 1 Thessalonians 1: 1-10 and Matthew 22: 1-14.
On Sunday morning, 18th October, we welcomed Pall Singh to speak. Pall is a former CMS Mission Partner and now the Director of Building Bridges in Edinburgh which enables organisations and faith groups towards a better understanding of the South Asian, Black and Ethnic minority communities in the City. He is the Co-coordinator of Bethany’s Befriending Service, ‘Passing the Baton’ for the homeless and the Faithful Friends project with Edinburgh Interfaith Association.
