Sunday Service

Invergordon Church of Scotland...  What Happens in a Sunday Service?


Invergordon Parish Church is a congregation of the Church of Scotland


The service starts with the minister welcoming everyone to church.

If there are any notices these may be read out at the start of the service.

We stand to sing a hymn or psalm, accompanied by either the organ or piano.

Then everyone sits and the minister leads the congregation in prayer.

Following the prayer there is a children’s talk, then another hymn, then the children go to the hall for ‘Sunday Special’.

We usually have two bible readings – one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament.

Following another hymn the minister will preach from the Bible (sermon), explaining God’s word and applying it to our lives in the 21st century.

The sermon will be followed by a prayer which will include the dedication of the offering (money gift brought to church and put on the offering plate on the way into church).

There is another hymn.  At the end of the last hymn everyone remains standing while the minister says the blessing (benediction).
