Live worship has returned to normal.
Worship takes place every Sunday morning at 10:30am and is normally lead by the minister. We have a small, enthusiastic choir who perform regularly. During term time St Fillan’s Youth usually leave following the Children’s address during the second hymn for their own activities. On the last Sunday of the month worship is held in the Church Hall. St. Fillan’s Youth meet upstairs for the duration of the service. Afterwards there is an opportunity to have tea or coffee and to share fellowship.
An evening service is held on the first Sunday of the month (except January) in the church at 6.30pm.
There are extra services at Christmas and Easter – the early evening Christmas Eve service and Easter Day services are especially busy – come early to get a seat! During Advent and Lent there are joint evening services with the neighbouring churches often with lay involvement.
As the village war memorial is on the wall of the church hall, the Remembrance Day service is held there on the 2nd Sunday in November at 10.00am. It is a joint service with St Columba’s Scottish Episcopal Church and the village uniformed organisations. It is a very well attended and moving service.
Communion services are held three times a year in March, June and October, with more informal ones on Christmas and Easter mornings. Home Communion is by arrangement with the minister.
For those who cannot attend church the services are recorded and then distributed weekly via a data stick which can be plugged into a player provided for their own use.
St Fillan’s Worship Group is a small team who support the Minister, helping him to meet his obligation to offer the opportunity for the people of Aberdour and the members of St Fillan’s to come together and Worship God. We take services at key times in the church calendar bringing together from churches along our beautiful coast line.
As the Church of Scotland changes and develops to meet the needs of people today, there will be lots of exciting opportunities from within the worship group to explore different ways, different places, and different times.
