A prayer for Ukraine: Loving God,* We pray for the people of Ukraine,* for all those suffering or afraid,* that you will be close to them and protect them.*** We pray for world leaders,* for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.*** We pray for the world* that in this moment of crisis,* we may reach out in solidarity* to our brothers and sisters in need.*** May we walk in your ways* so that peace and justice* become a reality for the people of Ukraine* and for all the world.*** Amen.***

Once again, I am pleased to invite you to the unveiling of the Edinburgh Nativity Scene on Sunday 27th November 2016 at 3pm.

We are returning to St. Andrew’s Square Gardens on the East side of George Street, Edinburgh to celebrate the start of the Christmas season.


This popular event brings together people from all denominations and will include carol singing led by the Exile Gospel Choir and of course everyone who comes along joins in for the launch of the advent Christmas Calendar.


This is the fourteenth year we have held this service and we will be joined by The Most Reverend Leo Cushley, Archbishop of St. Andrew’s & Edinburgh, Bishop John Armes, Dean of Edinburgh Diocese, Reverend James Dewar, Moderator, Presbytery of Edinburgh, The Reverend David Hart, City Centre Workplace Chaplain, Reverend Rosie Addis, Albany Church for the Deaf and Donald Wilson, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, who will join together in prayer and a blessing.


Please give this special event in the Christmas Calendar all your support and encourage as many of your friends and families to join us in celebrating the start of the Christmas celebrations with a reminder of what Christmas and its origins are all about.
