Given the shortage of ministers within the Church of Scotland at the moment and the number of Churches currently functioning without a full time minister, but obviously hopeful of being able to appoint one at some time in the future, we at Clackmannan Parish Church have initiated our own Worship Group.
The Worship Group is a small but dedicated group of volunteers from the congregation who meet on a regular basis under the guidance of our Interim Moderator, Rev Jim McNeil and our Locum Minister, Rev Ray Gaston. The group undergo training and guidance on the various aspects of Church sermon structure, content and delivery. Members of the group contribute, from time to time, to both content and delivery of specific parts of the normal Sunday Worship regardles of whether it's leading the service, a prayer, reading, children's talk or even an address.
We have no meetings arranged at the moment but if you are interested in joining the group then please make yourself known to one of the existing members.
Unfortunately our Locum Minister, Rev Ray Gaston has decided to retire at the end of June 2019 and at the moment the Worship Group are preparing to take all services during July and August 2019.
