On Sunday 17th March, Scott spoke about knowing our spiritual temperaments so that we can know more of our crucified and glorious Saviour, Jesus Christ. For some general info on spiritual temperaments, click here. This is based on the book ‘Spiritual Pathways’ by Gary Thomas.
The latest edition of Bright Lights from March 2019 is now available to view and download – if you wish to find out more about or follow up any items, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Read and enjoy!
Thanks to our able Communications Team and the four young people who have joined them (to help edit the Sunday audio – thanks Adam, Aidan, Jack and Stuart!), we now have the first two sermons up from Rev. Scott Burton, our new minister – more to follow!
The sermons are accessible via the “Sermons” tab at the top, or via this link:
On Sunday 18th November at the 11.00 am Service, Rev Scott Burton preached as Sole Nominee. The sermon that Scott preached can be found at https://www.brightonschurch.org.uk/sermons/. After the service, the congregation voted 204 to 12 in favour of calling Scott to be our new Minister.
Scott was delighted to accept and, accordingly he is now the Minister Elect for Brightons Parish Church. This will be Scott’s first charge having just completed his probation at Aberlady linked with Gullane.
From now until Monday 3rd December, the congregation has the opportunity to sign the call for Scott, indicating our support for him going forward. The call will be available on Sundays 25th November and 2nd December but will also be available to sign in the Small Hall during the week as and when organisations are meeting.
There is much still to do regarding the arrangements for Scott’s ordination and induction but, for now, we give thanks to God for this clear call and we continue to lay all the arrangements into His hands.
This event, organised by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and supported by a number of churches across the Central Belt will be taking place from June 15th to 17th in Falkirk Stadium.
Preparations are going on including Christian Life and Witness Courses, designed to encourage and help Christians share their faith with others and welcome new people into our church families after the event.
Please pray for these courses and for the Celebration itself. More information can be found at the Celebration website here. The timetable of courses can be found here along with a short video.
