1 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
As we continue through these weeks of lock down, I hope you are keeping safe. These days may feel very different and uncertain but in the midst of everything we can hold onto the assurance of God’s enduring love for us and with us. The words of Psalm 139 always remind us how deeply we are each known by God. He is aware of all our comings and goings, our thoughts and feelings; he circles us round with his abiding presence. To be so precious to the Maker of the universe is an amazing thing and brings us reassurance for each day.
Until we are able to be back to normal and gathering in church on a Sunday, we are developing worship times online. At present, we are following a pattern of preparing a recorded service one Sunday and then having a Zoom service the following week.
Each of these is being placed on both our joint church Facebook page and the Cockpen & Carrington Church YouTube page for viewing. The links for these will remain the same and they are:
For those not on internet, there is also a local telephone number that can be rung to listen to the reflection from that week’s Sunday service. The number to ring is: 0131 357 6001. This connects directly to a sound recording for you to listen to.
Some other things you may wish to tune into through the week:
We are beginning a group Bible study on Zoom during the week and if you would like to join this, please let the minister know (email@example.com; 07889 566418). It is an informal time to explore a Bible passage together.
Things are different for us just now, but may we stay encouraged in these days.
The Church is situated in a rural setting in the Cockpen area to the South East of Bonnyrigg on the B704 between Bonnyrigg and Gorebridge.
