We warmly welcome you to the Lossiemouth United Free Church website. We are a group of people who seek to share the Good News of the Gospel with others and to grow and learn together about the wonderful God whom we love and seek to serve. We would love to see you at our services whether you have never been in a church before, or you are someone just curious with lots of questions or maybe you are a Christian and you are looking for somewhere to worship. Whoever you are we would be delighted to welcome you.
Please browse around and get to know who we are, what we believe and what’s going on.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic the Kirk Session of Lossiemouth United Free Church have taken the unprecedented decision, based on the Government advice along with the position of the wider denomination to suspend all church services and activities for the time being. We feel that this is the best way to support the ongoing fight against this virus and to love our wider community. As the church we are not a building but a people and so we continue to be the people of God where we are and have opportunity to show the love of God at this time. We recognise that God’s people still need spiritual feeding especially in a time of crisis and so we will endeavour to do that in innovative ways. There are a great number of resources online with some churches able to livestream services. We also recognise that for some this option is simple not possible or accessible and so we will be endeavouring to get some CD recordings delivered to the congregation. (Initially this may be some of our archived recordings until we get up to speed with the technology).
Another concern we have is that our people are still cared for pastorally so please remember that the minister, elders and pastoral care team are only a phone call away if you have any needs or concerns for yourself or others. We are aware of the increased risk of people feeling isolated and it is our desire that we can continue to witness and show our love in innovative ways in the coming days. As believers we have an opportunity in a culture of fear to show the peace of God which passes all understanding. It is a peace that comes from knowing we serve a sovereign God. The words read at our last morning service are surely apt:
‘fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.’
Due to the fluid nature of this situation other changes may take place of which we will endeavour to keep you informed.
