Remote Ramblings

June 15, 2021

Taking a lead from the much loved women’s Distant Devotions group, and only about a year or so late, we are finally following suit for the men of the congregation (and others).  A group of us now use the YouVersion Bible app to follow daily Bible study plans and WhatsApp to keep in touch and support each other.  Our hope and prayer is that this group will prove as helpful and supportive as the Distant Devotions group has. Anyone (of any gender) interested in being part of this group please contact Iain Nisbet at office@tpc.org.uk

at 7.00 pm on Thursday 10 June 2021

We look forward to welcoming you.   Please encourage your neighbours and friends to join us online too by connecting to the church website https://torranceparishchurch.online.church

We have a varied programme and it will be a “TIME OF REFLECTION” as we remember the impact of Covid on our community.   Although it is mainly online we will be inviting a small number of folk to join us in the church.   Posters and emails will be circulated around the village and as always we value your prayerful support as we thank God for His faithfulness to us.   Thank you.

Prayer Team

June 3, 2021

We are aware as a church that there are many challenges in our daily lives. These challenges can cause us much grief within the church and in our community. The past year has made us even more aware of the needs within ourselves and others for support, a place to be heard and a chance to be prayed for.  Because of this our prayer ministry team have been able to offer support to many.  Sadly, due to the present restrictions we have been unable to offer this face to face in the church. However, we have been able to give prayer over the phone and as restrictions ease we hope we will once more be able to offer face to face contact.

Please contact us through the church office office@tpc.org.uk or Tel: 01360 620970 and a member of our team will be in contact. We are here for you whether a church member, member of the community or somebody who remains questioning.
