Welcome 

 
Welcome to the website of St Aidan's Episcopal Church, Clarkston, on the south side of Glasgow. We are part of the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway, in the Scottish Episcopal Church, a province of the worldwide  Anglican Communion. We are also in full communion with the Lutheran Churches of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden, in the Porvoo Communion. Our congregation includes individuals and families from many parts of the world, and everyone is welcome to share in our worship and fellowship.

NOTICE

In compliance with measures introduced by the Scottish Government, services and all other activities on the church premises are suspended until further notice. Unless further announcements are made, the arrangements detailed in the notice and video below will apply when public worship is resumed.

Morning Prayer on "Zoom" will continue to be offered on weekdays at 9.30. Directions for logging in may be found below, together with details for on-line worship offered by the Bishops on Sunday mornings.


FIRST SUNDAY IN LENT

Almighty God, whose Son fasted forty days in the wilderness, 

and was tempted as we are, yet did not sin: give us grace to 

discipline ourselves in submission to your Spirit, that, as you 

know our weakness, so we may know your power to save; 

through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns 

with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without 

end. Amen.


Almighty God, you hate nothing that you have made, and forgive 

the sins of all who are penitent: create in us a clean and contrite 

heart; that, in lamenting our sinfulness, we may receive from 

you, the God of all mercy, forgiveness and perfect peace; 

through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in 

the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.



Sundays of Lent, 9.30

MORNING PRAYER

The Zoom link will be as for Morning Prayer on weekdays, details below.

For details of the Lent course, please see the Magazine or contact Rachael Samuel


Resumption of Public Worship

When public worship resumes, it will for the time being be necessary to maintain the measures required by the authorities to mitigate risk of contagion. 

Hygiene and physical distancing measures will continue to be in place. Stewards will be on duty to assist in this, and further information will be contained in the Magazine as appropriate.

It is necessary that we have advance notice of who will be intending, and, in case of need to track and trace, record contact details, and store these securely for three weeks. Please e-mail banu60@hotmail.com to notify us of your intentions, including contact particulars, and the number of members of the household who will be attending.

Welcome Back to St Aidan's (guidance on COVID safe communion) When Communion is re-introduced to our services we've devised a system arranged to keep you distanced from your fellow worshippers as you go forward, receive communion and return to your seat. It's easier to show you than to write a description! So we've made a short video which you can watch here:
