“This letter is written on the Feast of the Epiphany. The magi visit the Son of God. They experience the truth of Isaiah’s prophecy: darkness had covered the earth – but the light has not overcome it. Epiphany is a ‘light’ moment.” This is how the 6 January pastoral letter from Rev Eddie Sykes begins his reflection on Isaiah 60:1. Do read the whole letter at this link.
Following the First Minister’s announcement of 4 January, there will be no services in person at our church during January. Meanwhile we will continue to have Zoom services at 9:45am every Sunday – click on the calendar entry on our What’s on page for more details, where these are available – and service sheets for private home worship will continue to be posted on the Circuit website. For 17 January, the service prepared by Rev Chris Shreeve, which can also be downloaded at this link, has prayers, links to on-line hymns and readings, and a reflection on people who had an ‘epiphany’ moment, when the ‘Light went on’, and they recognised and responded to God.
Every week don’t forget to light a candle at 7.00pm, and pray together with other Christians in Scotland, using the prayer specially written for each Sunday by the Scottish Church Leaders Forum, which you can download at this link (this prayer is usually updated on Fridays).
To brighten your spirits at this dark time of year, the Christmas issue of Contact, the newsletter of our Local Ecumenical Partnership, can be downloaded at this link.
Welcome to Rosyth Methodist Church. We are part of the Methodist Church in Great Britain, a Church with some 300,000 members across England, Scotland and Wales.
The Methodist Church is a Protestant denomination which originated in the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century. Our main focus is on the universal nature of God’s love, offered to all of humanity. Our response is to seek to live lives of holiness as part of the people of God. Methodism emphasises the need for a personal faith, and the involvement of all people in the life and work of the Church. Women and men have equal places in our church organisation and in our ordained ministry. Everyone is invited to discover and offer their gifts in the service of God and of the world.
We have always believed that faith is not to be confined to church, but should seek to enrich every aspect of human life.
Our congregation at Rosyth is in partnership with St Margaret’s Scottish Episcopal Church. We share the one building and some of the various activities.
This is a place for everyone and we would like people of all ages to feel part of our Sunday worship. Obviously in these times of coronavirus there are many constraints to regular meeting together, but we hope that, whether you join us in person or on-line, you will quickly feel at home, and also find sufficient challenges to move forwards in your spiritual life.
